Introducing URSA Mini, a lightweight miniaturized URSA featuring an incredible 4.6K Super 35 image sensor with global shutter and a massive 12 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.
Blackmagic URSA Mini is designed to be used on feature films, television shows, commercials, indies, documentaries, music videos and more. The stunning quality of its 4K sensor with 12 stops of dynamic range lets you capture epic cinematic shots, while its compact size is perfect for solo shoots or smaller crews! You can easily customize URSA Mini with high quality cinema lenses, rails, matte boxes and more. The optional shoulder mount kit features a quick release mounting plate so you can go from handheld to shoulder or tripod in seconds, making it perfect for pickup and run shooting situations. It’s the handheld Super 35mm digital film camera that you can use anywhere and, because it’s an URSA, everything you need is built right in!
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 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.
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 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.
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 color 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.
