Blackmagic Design URSA Mini Pro 4.6K Professional Digital Camera is a multi function digital camera that combines high end digital film quality with the features and controls of a broadcast camera. This means it can be used for digital film, as well as broadcast and live production. You get a Super 35mm 4.6K sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range that’s perfect for feature films and can also be instantly switched to traditional video mode for live video production work. Built in optical ND filters, user changeable lens mount, plus RAW and ProRes format recording to dual media CFast or SD cards. URSA Mini Pro is a perfectly balanced, compact body that’s comfortable enough to be used all day.
Get Three Cameras in One
URSA Mini Pro features an advanced sensor that gives you high resolution image quality with extremely wide dynamic range and a massive color gamut. That makes it perfect for use on high end feature films, television shows, music videos and commercials. It’s incredible image quality makes it the perfect “A” camera for the biggest Hollywood blockbusters, yet it’s still affordable enough for indie and documentary filmmakers. Plus, URSA Mini Pro has traditional broadcast ergonomics and the features you need for broadcast news, studio talk shows and sitcoms, and even live multi camera production! URSA Mini Pro is the world’s first camera that gives you true digital film quality on any production!
Strong and Lightweight Design
URSA Mini Pro features super strong magnesium alloy body that makes it durable enough to use in the most extreme environments! The magnesium alloy also makes it lightweight and helps to keep the camera cool by piping heat into an exchanger that allows convection cooling and heat dissipation from the camera’s body. You get professional connections, an external display, foldout touch screen and 9 mounting points for adding accessories and building custom rigs!
Interchangeable Lens Mount
URSA Mini Pro features a revolutionary, new interchangeable lens mount that lets you quickly switch between EF, PL and B4 lenses, making it compatible with the widest possible range of professional lenses. It comes standard with an EF lens mount and you can purchase optional PL and B4 lens mounts separately. That means you can work with everything from high quality photographic EF and lenses to the largest cinematic PL lenses, and even B4 broadcast HD lenses, all with the same camera!
Built in ND Filters
High quality built in neutral density (ND) filters reduce the amount of specific types of light entering the camera’s sensor. Designed to improve latitude and provide true colors, even in far-red and infra red wavelengths, ND filters let you quickly adjust to changes in lighting conditions. This makes it possible to select different combinations of aperture and shutter angle to achieve a shallower depth of field or specific levels of motion blur. The built in ND filters give you more creative options than ever and, because they’re built in, you don’t have to carry extra filters with you!
CFast and SD Card Recorders
When it comes to recording, URSA Mini Pro has dual C-Fast 2.0 recorders and dual UHS-II SD card recorders, so you can choose the type of media that works best for your project! C-Fast cards are ideal for recording full resolution, lossless 12-bit RAW files. SD cards, which are inexpensive and commonly available, are perfect for recording 4K ProRes files or RAW HD files. When either a C-Fast or SD card is full, recording automatically continues onto the next one so you never have to stop shooting!UPC: 9338716004540
