Digital Film, Extreme Resolution
URSA Mini Pro 12K's extraordinary resolution surpasses that of conventional film! You obtain the advantages of shooting with film, such as remarkable detail, a broad dynamic range, and rich, deep colors. Ideal for feature-length films, television episodes, and immersive, large-format IMAX. It is suitable for working with green screen and visual effects, including the compositing of live action and CGI, due to the high level of detail surrounding objects. Supersampling at 12K provides not only improved color and resolution at 8K, but also a fluidity resulting from the elimination of aliasing. This new generation of digital film technology introduces analog-style subtlety and purity for an experience that surpasses film.
Cinematic Super 35 12K Sensor
The Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K features an innovative new sensor with an inherent resolution of 12,288 x 6480, which is an astounding 80 megapixels per frame! The Super 35 sensor has a native ISO of 800 and a dynamic range of 14 stops. The new 12K sensor has an equal number of red, green, and blue pixels and is optimized for multiple image resolutions. You can shoot 12K at 60 fps or use in-sensor scaling to capture 8K or 4K RAW at up to 110 fps without having to crop or alter your field of view. The interchangeable lens mount of the URSA Mini Pro enables you to choose from the largest selection of vintage and modern cinema lenses, allowing you to capture every ounce of personality and detail from your preferred optics.
Shoot in 12K, Edit on a Laptop
The URSA Mini Pro 12K sensor and Blackmagic RAW were created in tandem to facilitate 12 bit RAW workflows in 12K. As a highly efficient next-generation codec, Blackmagic RAW allows you to capture in 12K and edit on a laptop, which is not possible with any other codec. Due to the sensor's high resolution, images can be reframed in post-production for delivery in 8K and 4K. It's like shooting with multiple cameras using only one. Additionally, it is ideal for vertical and square videos. With the advanced design of the sensor and Blackmagic RAW, you can immediately work in any resolution in post-production without rendering, while retaining the full color accuracy of the sensor.
Blackmagic RAW Fueled Image Capture
Only Blackmagic RAW can produce 80 megapixel, 12-bit, cinema-quality images at up to 60 frames per second. Constant quality Q0 and Q5 options, as well as the new Q1 and Q3 options, secure the quality level, allowing compression to adapt to the scene's particulars. The constant bitrate encoding options 5:1, 8:1, 12:1, and the new 18:1 are intended to provide the highest quality images with constant file sizes. You can record RAW to two cards simultaneously, allowing you to capture 12K or 8K at high frame rates to either CFast or UHSII cards! Blackmagic RAW stores camera metadata, lens data, white balance, digital slate information, and custom LUTs to guarantee image consistency on set and in post-production.
Virtual Cinema Production
The high frequencies of the LED matrix in video walls can cause interference patterns for ultra-sharp modern lenses and high-resolution sensors when filming in virtual production environments. Using an optical low pass filter reduces this interference, thereby decreasing moiré and aliasing. URSA Mini Pro 12K OLPF adds a 12K sensor-optimized, high-performance optical low-pass filter. When combined with Blackmagic RAW processing for the URSA Mini Pro 12K OLPF, the updated IR filtration in the OLPF preserves color and critical image detail for new levels of image fidelity.
Optimized for Fast Flexible Post Production
Shooting in RAW at 12K allows for the most precise control over exposure, color, and detail during post-production. As a result of oversampling, 8K is incredibly sharp without any jagged margins. Blackmagic RAW is optimized to accelerate 12K for post-production, making it as simple to work with as HD or Ultra HD files. It is highly optimized, multithreaded, compatible with multiple CPU processors, and GPU accelerated for compatibility with Apple Metal, CUDA, and OpenCL. So that you can always interact with the RAW files from your camera without having to create proxies. Blackmagic RAW 12K images offer unprecedented resolution and fidelity for 4K and 8K color grading, keying, compositing, reframing, stabilization, and tracking.
Generation 5 Color Science
Blackmagic Generation 5 Color Science includes a new film curve designed to maximize the use of the vast quantity of color data provided by the new URSA Mini Pro 12K sensor. This provides enhanced color response for more pleasing skin tones and enhanced rendering of highly saturated colors such as neon signs and automobile taillights in situations with high contrast. Generation 5 Color Science informs sophisticated Blackmagic RAW image processing, preserving color and dynamic range data from the sensor as metadata for post-production use. Generation 5 Color Science is compatible with all previously captured Blackmagic RAW files, allowing you to take advantage of the new film curve even with your existing footage.
