Introducing URSA Mini, a lightweight miniaturized URSA featuring an
incredible 4.6K Super 35 image sensor with global shutter in the 4K model
only and a massive 15 stops of dynamic range! The super compact and lightweight
design is perfectly balanced for handheld use and comfortable enough
for all day shooting. That means you get a handheld camera with higher
resolution and better dynamic range than most Super 35mm film! URSA Mini
shoots up to 60 frames per second, has a super bright 5 inch foldout
viewfinder, dual RAW and ProRes recorders and more. You can select from
four models of URSA Mini with 4.6K or 4K image sensors and either EF
or PL lens mounts.
URSA Mini comes in four models so you can choose from two different sensors and two different lens mounts. You can choose the 4.6K sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range in EF or PL lens mount models. If you’re on a tight budget, you can choose the more affordable 4K sensor with 12 stops of dynamic range with either EF or PL lens mount models. The PL mount works with professional cinema lenses and the EF models let you choose from an incredible selection of high quality photographic lenses from manufacturers like Zeiss, Canon, Sigma and more. Because EF lenses are used on high resolution DSLR cameras they have incredibly precise optics that can handle the high resolution of the URSA Mini 4.6K sensor.
URSA Mini features a compact, perfectly balanced body made out of advanced technology magnesium alloys so it’s rugged, lightweight and comfortable enough to be used all day. Like all URSA cameras, it includes everything you need built right in! You get a super bright 5 inch fold out 1080 HD touch screen for on-set monitoring and to change camera settings, professional connectors such as 12G-SDI, a high quality stereo microphones and a side grip with control buttons mounted on a standard rosette. The optional Blackmagic viewfinder and shoulder mount kit allow you to go from tripod to over the shoulder shooting in seconds, so you can keep up with the action!
Blackmagic URSA Mini is completely customizable so you can create a rig that’s built specifically for your production! You can add accessories like the Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder and Blackmagic URSA Mini Shoulder Kit, or choose from hundreds of third party accessories. URSA Mini has 9 standard ¼” threaded mounting points on the top and bottom of the camera so you can mount it directly to a tripod as well as add accessories such as rails, sliders, matte boxes, microphones, ring lights, batteries and more. Whether you’re building a feature film rig or outfitting the camera for an ENG style shoot, URSA Mini has all of the mount points and connections you need!
URSA Mini operates at a resolution and dynamic range that goes well beyond traditional motion picture film. You get a 4.6K image sensor that captures up to 4608 x 2592 pixels, that’s bigger than full DCI 4K! The sensor features global shutter up to 30 frames per second in the 4K model only and rolling shutter up to 60 frames per second with 15 stops of dynamic range. Built in refrigeration cooling ensures maximum dynamic range so you get incredibly clean pictures with amazing detail in both the dark shadows and bright highlight areas of the image. You can also choose a lower cost 4K model of URSA Mini with 12 stops of dynamic range when you don’t need the performance and are on a tighter budget.
URSA Mini can shoot at high frame rates and then play it back at the edit frame rate so you get smooth slow motion video. Simply set the sensor frame rate to get different types of slow motion effects. URSA Mini can capture full resolution 4.6K recordings at up to 60 frames per second and up to 160 frames per second in regular 1080 HD! When you need even more dramatic, higher frame rate slow motion shooting, you can use the regular URSA which can record high resolution 4.6K images at an amazing 120 frames per second!
Because URSA Mini features a 4.6K native resolution image sensor it can capture much higher resolution than Ultra HD. This means when you’re working in Ultra HD you have a lot of extra resolution that can be used through the de-bayering image processing so you can recover full color for incredible images. The wide dynamic range blows away high end broadcast cameras to give you dramatically better images that can be colored corrected for a truly cinematic look. For faster post production, quickly switch settings to use regular video dynamic range, so you can shoot great looking video without the need for color correction.
Blackmagic URSA Mini features dual CFast 2.0 recorders so you never have to stop recording when you need to change the media! When the current card is full, recording continues onto the second card so you can swap out the full card and just keep shooting. URSA Mini uses the latest, incredibly fast CFast 2.0 technology for recording speeds up to 350 MB/s. You get perfect high frame rate RAW recording and instant play back on the built in 5 inch screen. Files can be saved as lossless 12-bit CinemaDNG RAW for the highest possible quality, or as ProRes for easy post production workflows with minimum storage requirements!
URSA Mini has the highest quality built in microphones and professional audio recording built in so you don’t have to carry around extra sound equipment. Use the built in stereo microphone to record natural location sound or connect professional microphones using the two XLR wide dynamic range mic inputs. The XLR connections have 48V of switchable phantom power so you can plug in everything from shot gun to wireless clip on mics for capturing every detail of the performance. You can quickly adjust levels using the physical knobs and monitor audio using the onscreen audio meters.
The built in touchscreen makes it astonishingly simple to set up and enter metadata for tagging clips. Metadata is saved directly in the video files so you don’t have to worry about managing extra sidecar files. Some models of URSA Mini also include GPS and gyroscopic sensors so that information can be stored as metadata in the video files. That means you can import the files directly into software like DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer then use the metadata to sort, search and find the clips you need so you can spend more time on creative editing and less time managing mountains of media!
URSA Mini includes a 4-pin XLR industry standard power connector that works with 12V to 30V external power supplies. That means it’s easy to use the camera with all of your existing power supplies and batteries! URSA Mini uses the same battery power connector and mounting points on the rear of the camera as used on URSA so you can use the same range of battery plates from a wide range of manufacturers such as IDX, Frezzi, Anton Bauer and more. You can also add the optional Blackmagic URSA VLock Battery Plate for using popular V-Mount batteries.
