Blackmagic has launched a much-needed upgrade to its studio camera lineup, which is geared towards TV professionals involved in live production. The new cameras, the Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Pro and the Blackmagic Studio Camera 4K Plus, are now available for pre-order for $1,795 and $1,295 respectively.

Well, we say "new"; basically the manufacturer has brought together a studio viewfinder and a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K in the same device. So the underlying tech is not that groundbreaking or new.
