The DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel from Blackmagic Design is a step-up in functionality from the Micro panel but without all the features of the Advanced panel. It is a portable control surface suitable for those that need to switch between editing and color grading. It can sit on your desk top, in a rack, or be bolted to a surface. As with the Micro panel, it features three high-resolution, weighted trackballs and 12 control knobs for accessing essential primary color-correction tools in the Resolve software. 18 dedicated keys on the right side also give you access to the most commonly used grading features and playback controls.

However, the Mini Panel also features two LCD screens that allow you to display menus or the parameters of the tools you are working with. Eight customizable soft knobs provide precise control and a quick reset by pushing the knob. Dedicated feature buttons allow you to change tools without needing to use the mouse. The Mini panel incorporates a USB Type-C and Ethernet interface. It is compatible with Mac, Windows, and select Linux systems. You can power the panel via an AC power source, a 4-pin XLR connector, or PoE. For the panel to work with Resolve, your computer must be running DaVinci Resolve 14.3 or DaVinci Resolve Studio 14.3 or later. An included USB 3.0 Type-A to USB Type-C cable provides backward compatibility for systems that are limited to USB Type-A connectors.

Small enough to take with you, so you can bring it to any Resolve system (14.3 or later) and do color correction on location or at the editor's suite

Luminance
  • Y Lift Control: Adjust the contrast of the image in the darker areas, specifically in the Y (luminance) channel only. This adjustment allows changing the black point without changing saturation.
  • Y Gamma Control: Adjust the contrast of the image in the mid-tone areas, specifically in the Y (luminance) channel only. This control helps add depth and extra vibrancy to shots
  • Y Gain: You can reduce hot spots or tweak the whites to define a look.
Contrast
  • Contrast Control: Increase contrast to make the blacks darker and the whites brighter, or decrease contrast to do the opposite.
  • Pivot: Change the center of tonality about which dark and bright parts of the image are stretched or narrowed during a contrast adjustment.
  • Mid-Tone Detail: Affect the contrast of regions of the image with high edge detail to increase or decrease the perception of image sharpness and definition. Often used for softening facial features making it popular for beauty shots.
Detail
  • Color Boost Control: Raise the saturation in regions of the image with low saturation while leaving properly saturated areas alone. Also known as a vibrance operation, this is useful for adding color without over-saturating the image.
  • Shadow Control: Selectively lighten or darken shadow detail without affecting your images mid-tones.
  • Highlight Control: Enable retrieving blown-out highlight detail in high dynamic range media by lowering this parameter. This allows you to achieve a smooth blend between the retrieved highlights and unadjusted mid tones for a natural-looking image.
Saturation
Increases or decreases overall image saturation — you can turn your color image into a grayscale image with this control.

  • Hue Control: Rotates all hues of the image around 360° of the color wheel. The default setting is 50, which retains the original distribution of hues.
  • Luminance Mix Control: Controls the balance between the YRGB adjustments and Y only adjustments made using the Y channel lift, gamma, and gain controls.
The system powers from either AC power or a 12 VDC source via the 4-pin XLR connector.
The Mini panel can sit on a desktop, be mounted in a rack, or mounted to a surface to prevent theft or be used in a moving vehicle or on a cart.

    DaVinci Resolve Mini Panel is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Changes the way you do color The build quality is unbelievable. All the buttons and knobs have a remarkable feel to them that makes you respect the control in all new ways. In addition, the ease of use due to the layout of the knobs encourages you to make many more quick adjustments. Specifically the "offset" button allows you to quickly dial in color temp and tint and get right back to three-way color without skipping a beat. Not to mention the curves adjustments are now able to be done without looking at the controls, but just by feel due to the many knobs at the top. This alone makes the Mini panel worth it. I could go on, but if you work with Resolve a lot, this panel is worth it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Legit panel The feel and responsiveness is reminiscent of legacy panels. Not exactly a plug and play but close. The dedicated pots above the joyrings are not back lit which at first is irksome. Muscle memory soon takes over while in the dark. Would like either a screen saver or a way to power down the panels while not using Resolve. A bright Not connected to Resolve warning is not an elegant resting position. Kudos to BMD for providing a quality intermediate panel solution.
