Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K Digital Cinema & Broadcast Camera
FULL DAY HIRE
The new URSA Mini Pro combines the best digital film technology with the most advanced broadcast features & ergonomics available, making it perfect for use feature films, television shows, commercials, indie films as well as broadcast news, studio & even live multi camera production.
URSA Mini Pro is designed to be the toughest & most fully featured camera available. It includes everything customers need in a compact handheld magnesium alloy body that’s durable & light enough to use anywhere. There’s an external high visibility LCD status display for viewing critical shooting information, a foldout touch screen for reviewing shots without needing an extra on-set monitor, professional connections such as 12G-SDI, XLR audio, built in high quality stereo microphones & more. Plus, every single control on the camera is redundant, including the power, so if anything should go wrong in the field, the camera can still be used.
When it comes to image quality, URSA Mini Pro features a custom 4.6K image sensor that captures up to 4608 x 2592 pixels with a massive 15 stops of dynamic range & a super wide colour gamut. Third generation Blackmagic Design colour science is used to process the raw sensor data, enabling amazingly rich skin tones, natural colour response and an enormous amount of dynamic range. URSA Mini Pro is ideal for everything from standard rec. 709 broadcast HD to the latest rec. 2020 high dynamic range digital film production.
URSA Mini Pro features neutral density (ND) filters with IR compensation for quickly reducing the amount of light that enters the camera. The 2, 4 & 6 stop filters are specifically designed to match the colorimetry of the camera & provide additional latitude, even under harsh lighting conditions. That means customers can 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 evenly compensate for both far red & infrared wave lengths to eliminate IR contamination. The ND filters are true optical filters with a precision mechanism that quickly moves them into place when the ND filter dial is turned.
The broadcast camera ergonomics of URSA Mini Pro put powerful tactile control buttons, switches, knobs & dials on the outside of the camera, giving customers direct access to the most important camera settings. The controls are laid out in a logical order that makes them easy to remember so cinematographers can operate the camera without having to look at the buttons, hunt through menus, or take their eye off of the action. URSA Mini Pro also features a high visibility status screen that displays important information such as timecode, shutter & lens settings, battery, recording status, & audio levels. The status display features a backlight & is designed to be clearly visible in both dimly lit studios & outside in direct sunlight.
URSA Mini Pro has a revolutionary new interchangeable lens mount that makes it compatible with virtually all professional lenses so customers can choose exactly the right lens for the job. Included standard is an EF mount for working with high quality photographic lenses. If the camera is being used on a high end film or commercial shoot that calls for large cinematic lenses, simply remove the EF mount and replace it with the PL mount. There’s even a B4 broadcast lens mount for working with broadcast HD lenses. URSA Mini Pro also includes a standard 12 pin Hirose lens control connector. URSA Mini Pro comes with an EF mount and customers can purchase the optional PL & B4 lens mounts separately.
Featuring both dual C-Fast 2.0 recorders & dual SD/UHS-II card recorders, customers can choose the media that works best for their projects. C-Fast cards are ideal for full resolution RAW recording, while UHS-II SD cards are inexpensive & commonly available, making them perfect for recording ProRes Ultra HD files or RAW HD files. Simply choose the media type, insert the cards & start shooting. With dual slots for each media type, the camera never has to stop recording because when the first card is full, it automatically continues onto the next card. Full cards can be swapped for empty ones, all without stopping the camera. URSA Mini Pro can record lossless 12-bit CinemaDNG RAW files for the highest possible quality, or 10-bit ProRes files for easy post production workflows with minimum storage requirements.
URSA Mini Pro includes the full DaVinci Resolve Studio software, giving customers a complete post production solution. This powerful software combines professional nonlinear video editing with the world’s most advanced colour corrector for importing, editing, colour correcting, finishing & delivering projects shot on URSA Mini Pro. DaVinci Resolve Studio works natively with the RAW & ProRes files from the camera, so customers can take them directly into post production without having to convert or change them. Every single bit of quality is preserved because it is a true lossless workflow. Using DaVinci Resolve Studio is the fastest & highest quality way to work with files from URSA Mini Pro.
“Professional DoP’s & Cinematographers love the incredible image quality of URSA Mini & we have been working with them & listening to their feedback,” said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design. “URSA Mini Pro is so exciting because it combines high end digital film quality with broadcast camera & live production features, all into a single camera. URSA Mini Pro is powerful enough to be used on high end feature films & television shows, versatile enough to be used for broadcast news & live multi camera event production, & affordable enough for indie filmmakers & even students! It’s like getting 3 cameras in one!”
