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! You get a massive number of controls on the side of the camera which are positioned so you can adjust most settings by feel, and without ever having to take your eyes off the action. 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 photographic lenses or PL, B4 and F mount lenses. URSA Mini Pro records up to 60fps and features dual CFast 2.0 recorders as well as dual SD/UHS-II Card recorders. URSA Mini Pro is lightweight and comfortable enough to use all day, has controls that are extremely fast to use, and image quality that’s far superior to broadcast cameras costing ten times more!
URSA Mini Pro is “three cameras in one” because it combines high end digital film quality with the features and controls broadcasters need. It’s ideal for any kind of work from high end feature films, television shows and commercials, to independent films, broadcast news, and even studio and live production! URSA Mini Pro features beyond Ultra HD 4.6K resolution plus 15 stops of dynamic range, all with a super wide color gamut and DaVinci color science so you always capture cinematic quality images. The super compact body features broadcast camera controls and advanced operating software that make it faster to set up and use than any other camera! Whether you’re on set, on location or shooting run and gun, URSA Mini Pro has the image quality and features you need to work on any type of project!
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. You can also choose the lower cost URSA Mini 4K model with 12 stops of dynamic range when you don’t need the performance and are on a tighter budget.
All URSA Mini Pro cameras feature built in Bluetooth that allows you to send and receive commands from up to 30 feet away. Blackmagic Design has also published a new, open protocol and developer API, along with sample code for an iPad app that can control URSA Mini Pro. Now you can create your own remote camera control solutions, digital slate applications, remote color correction software and more! The possibilities are endless and this technology will enable entirely new workflows that were never before possible. Imagine building an app that can jam sync timecode and trigger all cameras to record to their internal media with matching metadata, all at the same time!
URSA Mini Pro and URSA Mini cameras include a 4-pin XLR industry standard power connector that works with 12V to 20V external power supplies. That means it’s easy to use the camera with all of your existing power supplies and batteries! All URSA cameras use the same battery power connector and mounting points on the rear of the camera so you can use a wide range of battery plates from manufacturers such as IDX, Blueshape, Anton Bauer and more. You can also add the optional Blackmagic URSA VLock Battery Plate or Blackmagic URSA Gold Battery Plate for using popular V‑Mount and Gold Mount batteries.
