  • Blackmagic Design URSA Mini Pro 4.6K Digital Cinema Camera

    Retaining the familiar form factor of the original URSA Mini, Blackmagic Design's URSA Mini Pro 4.6K Digital Cinema Camera brings expanded control set and increased functionality. The most noticeable difference is the addition of external camera controls. No longer will menus have to be accessed to change exposure settings, activate slow/fast motion, or engage focus assist or other functions. The exterior of the camera also gains a monochrome LCD panel which displays essential shooting data at a glance. Another welcome pro feature is the implementation of built-in ND (neutral density) filters. The four-position wheel switches between two, four, and six stops of neutral density, plus a clear filter for no exposure reduction. Behind the display, two SD card slots have materialized beside the CFast 2.0 slots, enabling more affordable media to be used for less intensive recording formats. The default electronic EF lens mount is user-interchangeable and adjustable to ensure proper flange-focal distance.

    At the heart of the camera is Blackmagic Design's acclaimed Super 35mm 4.6K sensor block, known for its ability to capture cinematic images with subtle gradients and large dynamic range rated at 15 stops. Like the URSA Mini, the URSA Mini Pro can record high resolution raw sensor data in the CinemaDNG format onto CFast 2.0 memory cards at up to 60 fps. The raw files preserve the full dynamic range and color tonality output from the sensor so you can have greater control over the look in post-production. However, data-heavy uncompressed raw files aren't always easy to deal with on-set, so in addition to uncompressed raw recording, the URSA Mini Pro provides compressed raw recording at 3:1 and 4:1 compression ratios to save space while retaining post-production flexibility.

    If raw capture is not necessary for your production, the URSA Mini Pro offers ready-to-edit industry standard Apple ProRes files in many different flavors within the 444 and 422 chroma subsampling variations depending on your workflow. The 4.6K, 4K, 3K, 2K, and HD recording resolutions can be captured as ProRes files either using the "Film" dynamic range for a flatter image for grading in post-production, or "Video" dynamic range for a finished look right out-of-camera. ProRes can be recorded to either CFast 2.0 or UHS-II SD cards (SD cards top out at UHD 4K, please check the Blackmagic Design website for updated card compatibility and limitations).

    Since the form factor of the original URSA Mini has been adhered to, the ergonomic benefits have remained as well. With separately available accessories, like the VCT shoulder pad, side-handle extension, broadcast battery plate, and EVF, the camera can be kitted out for comfortable shooting over extended periods. For studio-style shooting, the same shoulder pad is compatible with 15mm LWS rods for mounting lens supports for long lenses, follow focuses, lens drive motors, matte boxes, and more.

    Pro Features

    Built-In ND Filters
    The URSA Mini Pro features high quality neutral density (ND) filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. The clear, 2, 4, and 6 stop filters have been specifically designed to match the color science of the URSA Mini Pro in order to maintain consistent image quality with minimal color shift. The ND filters conveniently let 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. Additionally, the internal IR filters have been designed to filter both optical and infrared wavelengths evenly to eliminate IR contamination of the images that can be brought about by standard ND filter. A precision mechanism holds the filters and quickly moves them into place when the ND filter dial is turned. Furthermore, the current filter settings can be displayed as an ND number, stop reduction, or fraction on the LCD.
    External Control Section
    Using a design inspired by classic broadcast cameras, the URSA Mini Pro features a wide array of tactile physical controls with 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 camera settings, apply ND filters, and change frame rate without having to look at the buttons, dive into on-screen menus or take the camera off of your shoulder.
    User-Interchangeable Lens Mounts
    By default the URSA Mini Pro includes an interchangeable EF mount. But, if you want to use lenses with F (Nikon), PL, or B4 mounts, separately available interchangeable mounts can be purchased. Having an interchangeable lens mount allows the URSA Mini Pro to be used in nearly any kind of workflow, from documentary, to ENG or EFP, and cinema. For ENG lenses, a 12-pin Hirose connector will power the servo so all lens functionality can be utilized.
    External LCD Status Display
    The status display is a high visibility black-and-white LCD screen that's designed to be easily seen, even in bright light. The status display shows record timecode, locked timecode and reference timecode, along with the current shooting frame rate, shutter angle, aperture, white balance, ISO, and iris. It also features a battery indicator, card recording status, and audio meters for monitoring levels. The screen's backlight can be turned on when you're shooting in dimly lit locations, and off when you're shooting outdoors and in bright light to increase contrast, making it easy to read under nearly any shooting condition.
    Advanced Image Processing
    Third generation Blackmagic Design color science is used to process the raw sensor data, enabling rich skin tones, natural color response, and a wide dynamic range. The full color gamut recorded by the URSA Mini Pro extends beyond Rec. 2020 and DCI P3, allowing the recorded images to fit into professional workflows from TV Rec. 709 to modern wide-gamut standards.
    CFast 2.0 and SD Media Support
    Two of each CFast 2.0 and SD slots are available for recording media. High-end workflows that require 4K or 4.6K raw recording and high-frame-rate shooting will take full advantage of the high-bandwidth CFast 2.0 cards. Raw HD and 4K ProRes material can be recorded onto convenient and relatively inexpensive SD cards compatible with the UHS-II standard. Since two of each slot is available, you can keep recording, regardless of format choice.

    General Features

    Compact Handheld Design
    Sizing down the original URSA shape enables the URSA Mini Pro to fit into feature film, indie film, TV, commercial, documentary, and music video workflows with crews of any size. Using the optional shoulder mount with a built-in quick-release plate, the URSA Mini Pro can go from handheld to shoulder to tripod in a matter of seconds. Despite its size, the URSA Mini Pro still fits essential controls and I/O for professional workflows.

    The body is made from Magnesium alloys in order to keep the URSA Mini Pro lightweight at just over 5 pounds. To make the camera more acceptable for handheld usage, a side handle is included. With the optional shoulder mount, the handle can be extended off the side of the camera to be used in a doc-style configuration.

    4.6K Super-35mm Sensor
    With an effective resolution of 4608 x 2592, the sensor housed inside the URSA Mini Pro can capture motion pictures that have greater-than 4k resolution with a film-like 15 stops of dynamic range. A wide exposure latitude allows for greater control in post, enabling highlight recovery while keeping the shadows clean from artifacting.

    The URSA Mini Pro can record the entire sensor at up to 60 fps to fit television or other workflows which require higher frame rates. Using a smaller portion of the sensor, the URSA Mini Pro can also record slow-motion footage at up to 120 fps in 1080p resolution. When recording high frame rates, the URSA Mini Pro will conform captured footage to the set standard frame rate resulting in smooth footage that doesn't require post processing before editing.

    Touchscreen Control
    In addition to more traditional button-driven menus and the bevy of external controls, the URSA Mini Pro features a fold-out 4" capacitive touchscreen LCD monitor. Using the easily navigable touchscreen menu you can see and change all camera settings, view timecode, scopes, audio levels, and focus peaking, as well as add shot metadata with an onscreen keyboard.
    Professional Connections
    The URSA Mini features multiple connections such as 12G-SDI out, HD-SDI monitoring out, 2 LANC inputs, balanced XLR audio with phantom power, timecode-in, and reference input. On the front right side of the camera the 4 pin XLR DC and HD-SDI monitoring output are located in the perfect position for connecting to an optional viewfinder or on set monitor. The 12G-SDI output handles up to 2160p60 using a single BNC cable and also switches to 6G-SDI or HD-SDI depending on the shooting format.
    Quality Sound Recording
    With high quality built in microphones and professional audio recording features you don't have to carry around extra sound equipment. You can use the built in stereo microphone to record natural location sound or connect professional microphones using the two XLR mic inputs. The XLR connections have 48V of switchable phantom power so you can plug shotgun mics or wireless lavalier mics for capturing more detail. You can quickly adjust levels using the physical knobs while monitoring the audio using the onscreen audio meters and headphones.
    Multiple Power Options
    On its own, the URSA Mini Pro 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 existing professional power supplies and batteries. The camera uses the same battery power connector and mounting points on the rear of the camera as used on the original 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 V-Lock Battery Plate for using popular V-Mount batteries.
    DaVinci Resolve Software Included
    Included with the camera is a DaVinci Resolve USB dongle, which contains a license to unlock the full feature-set within the software. The full version of DaVinci Resolve is compatible with Mac and Windows, and can be used for editing, color grading, media management, mastering, and delivery. DaVinci Resolve is designed to handle the 12-bit log RAW images from URSA Mini Pro so you can take advantage of URSA Mini Pro's image quality and wide dynamic range. DaVinci Resolve features advanced, multi-layer timeline editing with powerful trimming tools, along with a fully professional suite of creative grading tools
  • Blackmagic Design URSA 4K v1 Digital Cinema Camera (PL Mount)

    The URSA 4K v1 Digital Cinema Camera with PL Mount from Blackmagic Design features a form factor that is designed to make it flexible enough to use on productions of all sizes. From a single operator all the way up to a full camera crew. At the heart of the imaging system, URSA 4K features a 3840 x 2160p resolution, global shutter CMOS sensor with 12 stops of dynamic range. The camera records and outputs in the 2160p format, a 16:9 standard with precisely four times the resolution of 1080p, often referred to as UltraHD.

    Internally, URSA can record in the two formats. The first is 12-bit CinemaDNG RAW, a losslessly compressed RAW codec designed to give you the greatest latitude for image manipulation in post production. The second is Apple ProRes 422 (HQ), a debayered codec for easier playback and editing in a wide range of video editing applications. Additionally, ProRes also requires less storage space for extended recording times. Video is recorded to CFast 2.0 memory cards, and the camera features two slots allowing you to hot swap media for continuous, uninterrupted recording.

    URSA features a 10.1", 1080p resolution flip-out LCD screen so that you won't necessarily need an on-camera monitor. Additionally, there are two 5" capacitive touchscreens, one on either side of the body. These allow you to access the menu system and can display data such as timecode and audio waveforms.

    So you can edit and color correct your footage, especially footage shot in the CinemaDNG RAW format, URSA includes DaVinci Resolve software dongle for OS X and Windows.

    Supports Diverse User Groups
    From solo camera operator up to full-scale productions. When used on jobs with a large crew, you can easily dress the camera with high quality cinema lenses, rods, follow focus, matte box, and more. If you're shooting solo, then the large fold out on-set monitor, built in scopes, and internal recorder means you don't need any extra on-set equipment because it's all built into the camera
    Design By Department
    Each area of the camera has been divided into separate camera operator, camera assistant, and audio engineer work stations. The camera operator station features a large 10" fold out on-set monitor and separate 5 inch screen for settings, camera status, and scopes. The camera assist station features a separate screen for camera settings, status, and scopes. Finally, the audio station features audio meters, controls, and audio connections
    Professional Design and Aluminum Construction
    URSA features an active cooling system with low noise fan that allows it to achieve higher frame rates for longer while keeping the chassis cool. The machined aluminum design is built to incredibly robust and has been engineered with the possibility it will be handled by lots of people in mind
    Super 35-Sized Global Shutter CMOS Sensor
    The 4K resolution sensor uses a global shutter so that it will be free from the motion artifacts and flash banding experienced with rolling shutter sensors. It features a wide, 12 stop dynamic range to help ensure detail is retained even in the shadow and highlight portions of the image and to provide more information to work with in color correction. The sensor size makes it possible to recreate the shallow depth of field look popularly associated with film. At this size it is slightly larger than the APS-C DSLR format and will accommodate most lenses that cover an APS-C image circle
    Dual CFast 2.0 Card Slots
    With two cards slots, it is possible to keep recording indefinitely. Simply switch over to a fresh card in the second slot and then remote the first to offload to a computer or storage device. By using CFast 2.0 media it is possible to record even at the high bitrates demanded by RAW capture without dropping frames
    Built-In Scopes
    URSA features scopes for exposure, focus, and audio levels. And there is a dedicated screen for camera assistants so they can check and update camera parameters independently of the camera operator
    Field Upgradable Sensor
    The URSA features a modular camera turret that can be removed by taking out four bolts. The camera turret includes the sensor, lens mount, and lens control connections and can be upgraded in the future when new types of sensors are developed
    Broadcast Connections
    Standard BNC connectors mean you don't need to worry about custom or proprietary cabling solutions. URSA features a 12G-SDI output that can be down converted to HD or used directly for full Ultra HD 4K quality. There's also a 12G-SDI input that can display return video on the 10" LCD when covering live events or working with external video sources. A separate SDI output that outputs 1080p only is available for attaching EVFs and monitors. For audio, there are two XLR inputs with +48 V phantom power. You also get timecode in and out to help synchronize with other cameras or separate audio recorders
    LANC Port
    A LANC is provided on a 2.5 mm sub mini connector. It allows you to control record START/STOP, iris, and focus
    Supports Standard Battery Plates
    Your choice of Gold Mount or V-Mount battery plates can be attached directly to the back of the camera. Alternatively, there is a 4-pin XLR input so you can use a power supply or other DC power source. The URSA also features a 4-pin XLR power output so you can power a camera mounted 12V accessory without needing an additional battery
    Lots of Mounting Points
    The top of the camera features a number of 3/8"-16 tapped holes so you can attach articulating arms and other mounting accessories. There are also 1/4"-20 holes along the top of the removable handle. In addition, there is a mount for 15mm LWS-spaced rods built-in to the bottom of the camera. By adding a pair of standard 15mm rods you can add accessories such as follow focus and matte box. A V-lock delta interface allows the camera to be attached to tripods using an ENG-style quick release system such as the VCT-14
