Introducing URSA Mini Pro, a professional digital film camera that combines the incredible image quality of URSA Mini 4.6K with the features and controls of a traditional broadcast camera! There are a massive number of ergonomically designed controls on the side of the camera so you can adjust most settings by feel. URSA Mini Pro also features built-in ND filters, a status display and a revolutionary new interchangeable lens mount that lets you change between EF, PL and B4 lenses. URSA Mini Pro records up to 60fps and features dual C-Fast 2.0 recorders as well as dual UHS-II SD Card recorders.
Built in ND Filters
URSA Mini Pro features high quality neutral density (ND) filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. The 2, 4 and 6 stop filters have been specifically designed to match the colorimetry and color science of URSA Mini Pro. This lets you use different combinations of aperture and shutter angle to achieve shallower depth of field, or specific levels of motion blur, in a wider range of situations. The IR filters have been designed to filter both optical wave lengths and IR wave lengths evenly to eliminate IR contamination of the images that most ND filters can suffer from.
Powerful Tactile Controls
Like the world’s best broadcast cameras, URSA Mini Pro features powerful tactile control buttons, switches, knobs and dials, giving you direct access to the most important camera settings. The controls are laid out in a logical order that makes them easy to remember, so you’ll be able to adjust settings, use ND filters, change frame rate and even snap a still photo without having to look at the buttons or take the camera off of your shoulder.
Interchangeable Lens Mounts
Different projects require different lenses, which is why URSA Mini Pro features a new interchangeable lens mount! Imagine shooting regular work using a photography lens but then being able to change to a PL mount cinema lens. With the URSA Mini Pro you can quickly switch between EF, PL and B4 lenses, making it compatible with the widest possible range of professional lenses.
Cinematic 4.6K Sensor
When it comes to image quality, URSA Mini Pro operates at a higher 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, which is bigger than full DCI 4K! The sensor features a massive 15 stops of dynamic range, making it perfect for high dynamic range (HDR) projects. The built in active refrigeration ensures maximum dynamic range and low noise so you get incredibly clean pictures with amazing detail in both the dark shadows and bright highlight areas.
URSA Mini Pro features an incredibly wide color gamut that captures more of the visible color spectrum than Rec. 2020, which is vastly larger than the P3 digital cinema color space! Third generation Blackmagic Design color science is used to process the raw sensor data, enabling amazingly rich skin tones, natural color response and enormous amounts of dynamic range. Whether you’re shooting a Hollywood blockbuster, an indie film, high end commercial, or a broadcast television show, URSA Mini Pro’s combination of resolution, dynamic range and color gamut delivers amazingly rich and lifelike images!
High Frame Rate Recording
URSA Mini Pro can shoot at high frame rates and then play it back at the edit frame rate. You can set the camera’s default shooting frame rate and also specify an “off speed” frame rate. Switching between them is simple with just the touch of a button on the camera. URSA Mini Pro can capture full resolution 4.6K recordings at up to 60 frames per second!
Non Stop Recording
URSA Mini Pro features both dual C-Fast 2.0 recorders and dual UHS-II SD card recorders. C-Fast cards are ideal for full resolution RAW recording, but SD and UHS-II offers an inexpensive option. This makes them perfect for recording ProRes Ultra HD files or RAW HD files.
Ursa Mini Pro Connections
Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro features multiple connections.
- 12G-SDI out
- HD-SDI monitoring out
