Capturing the Ultimate 4K Experience with a little Blackmagic

Magic is a strange thing it can make us believe in things beyond our control and in some cases that a person has mythical powers, its all just a trick though unless we get into things unproven or unbelievable at the end of the day it is just another temporary fantastical escape for your mind much like any source of joy or entertainment. We use it to explain things we have no words or explanation for in the absence of scientific proof of concept. The best magicians attempt to work within reality while still pulling off amazing feats of spectacle and I think the best video cameras also give you that sense of reality bending fun while also staying in the moment and capturing the two worlds blending and colliding together in HD 4K Realism.

They really are magicians and can capture stunning things in reality that are right before your eyes all the time but never had the clarity or attention to detail to see, but the Blackmagic Design URSA Broadcast can make your film dreams a reality being switchable to either an incredible field camera for programming work or a professional studio camera for the field of news gathering work that can’t be matched by simple DSLR’s.

 

The versatility of this camera also extends into working with any existing HD or Ultra HD lenses you have so you can shoot on the go and always have what you need to get the perfect shot, with the B4 lens mount that works with your existing lenses or can be swapped for optional EF, F and PL lens mounts for standard photographic lenses. As well you can also save space and work faster with the ability to use standard media cards and file formats that are compatible on virtually all formats and editing software. The media storage options for the camera are a 2 x CFast for 4K RAW and ProRes recording. 2 x SD UHS-II card slots for HD and Ultra HD recording.

 

While we are talking about recording did we mention the incredible 4K Ultra HD picture you get out of this camera? To start off we have an amazing shooting resolution of 3840 x 3160 and up to 60 fps (frames per second) frame rates and high quality neutral density (ND) filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera with 1/4, 1/16th and 1/64th stop filters giving you the perfect amount of light to get the clearest picture possible even in the worst rainy, muggy conditions. Some of the other too many to list features listed below.

 

Features:

  • 2/3 inch sensor size when using 4K B4 mount (Actual sensor size 13.056mm x 7.344mm)
  • Dynamic Range – 12 Stops+
  • 4 inch LCD capacitive touchscreen
  • Electronic control via 12-pin broadcast connector. Control also possible via EF mount pins when using optional URSA Mini Pro EF Mount
  • Built in Four position ND filter wheel with clear, 2-stop, 4-stop and 6-stop ND filters
  • Focus button turns on peaking, auto focus available using compatible lenses
  • Highly accurate time code clock. Less than 1 frame drift every 8 hours

 

 

 

 

 

Overall this is a very modular grab and go camera but for people who want professional quality filming that can adapt to any situation or environment to be able to get in and out in hurry without sacrificing quality or a grainy hard to follow or see image. It can adapt to any lens, storage device, remote control, microphone, light source or magic potion you want to throw at it and make you understand how seeing is believing, in magic and in broadcasting.

Flock Of Crows – 2 of a Kind Video Extender System Solutions

In the wild crows are very smart, one of the smartest birds in fact and they are even intelligent enough to help raise siblings when old enough. You see crows mate for life usually and spend most of the year living in pairs of 2 (when not roosting of course) When nesting season approaches and the pair are lucky enough to have an old enough juvenile they are frequently seen defending the nest from predators and bringing food to mom, dad or the younger siblings directly, with one study showing up to 80 percent of American crows nest looked at had helping hands connecting the generations for the parents and ensuring they survive and strengthening the bond they have or for the sake of this blog tie in the link up power. This is just one example of linking up in nature that shows how beneficial and smart it is but now I will show you the benefits of doing the same when it comes to camera technology. Introducing the Raven™ 3104 & Raven™ 3124 USB 3.1 Extender for your CAT 6a/7, or Multimode Fiber Extender Systems.

The only thing you have to know is how far you want to extend and whether you need fiber optic long distance or CAT 6a/7 for a smaller job, its a perfect pair. For CAT 6a/7 we have the Icron Raven 3104 4-port USB 3.1, 100m CAT 6a/7 Extender System allowing users to extend all USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5 Gbps) device types as well as USB 2.0 and 1.1 devices across a point-to-point connection up to 100m over a single CAT 6a/7 cable.

Can be used/paired with flash and hard drive, keyboards, mice, interactive whiteboards, touchscreens, docking stations, USB to video converters, audio devices, and/or any other USB 3, 2 and 1 device. It has a blazing 10x the speed when compared to ANYother Box USB extender on the market and it is the only extender currently capable of CAT X 3.0 extension, with CAT X being widely preferred over fiber in virtually all typical applications. The long list of features for the USB  3-2-1 Raven™ 3104 continues below.

On top of all these great features, you also have the additional choice if you are inclined or have a USB 3.1 extender application that requires fiber optic cable instead of the CAT 6a/7 then we have that covered too. The Icron USB  3-2-1 Raven™ 3124 has a fiber link cable connection that provides great benefit to medical and military personnel especially as it provides electrical isolation for extra security. It provides all the same applications uses as the Raven 3104 on top of this and extends up to 200 meters simultaneously over Multimode Fiber and has an extra treat for installers because you can leverage an existing network infrastructure without having to run additional dedicated cables or allow users (especially PTZ or Pan Tilt Zoom Applications) to connect Ethernet capabilities through the extender without having to run a separate cable.
