Advanced URSA Mini Software

The world’s most intuitive and fastest professional digital film camera!

URSA Mini features advanced new software that is designed to make using your camera super fast and more intuitive than ever! All important camera functions can be accessed with a single tap on the new heads up display, there’s an elegant new digital “slate” that makes metadata entry a breeze, and a dashboard that uses simple tap and swipe gestures for record settings, monitoring, audio, camera setup, presets and LUTs. It’s an entirely new operating system for your camera in which each camera feature runs as a separate high performance app. That means you get greater stability than other simple camera software! Best of all, we’ll be able to add even more great new features in the future!

New Heads Up Display

Instantly see and adjust the most important settings with a single tap!

The new heads up display, or HUD, contains critical information such as the frame rate, iris, timecode, shutter angle, white balance, ISO, audio levels and more. You can show or hide the heads up display by simply swiping up or down. For example, you can adjust settings such as white balance simply touching the WB indicator, or change the audio levels by touching the audio meters. Everything is interactive, so if you tap any item you can instantaneously change it’s settings without having to search through confusing menus!

Fast Adjustments With A Single Tap

Quickly change settings and see how they affect your image in realtime!


Advanced Digital Slate

Add metadata faster than ever before!

URSA Mini features a new digital “slate” and incredible metadata features that make it extremely fast to add metadata to any shot! Simply swipe left or right to bring up the digital slate. You get intelligent predictive entry suggestions that can be added as metadata tags with a simple tap! Plus, if you start and stop recording, URSA Mini automatically increments take number so you don’t have to enter them manually for each shot. It will also increment your reel numbers each time you format a card. In addition, lens metadata is automatically detected from electronic lenses or it can be entered manually, along with production specific information, technical information and much more! All of this metadata is saved with the files and available in post production when editing and color correcting with software such as DaVinci Resolve!


Fast Camera Settings

Incredible new dashboard gives you complete control!

The new URSA Mini dashboard has six tabs with elegant, simple to understand interfaces that give you quick access and complete control over every setting and feature on the camera! Simply tap on the record, monitor, audio, setup, presets, or LUTs tab to access everything with just a few taps. The unique design of the interface offers visual consistency that puts items in the same logical order every time so you can quickly learn where settings are and remember how to change them!


Simplified Recording Setup

Quickly check or change recording settings!

The record tab gives you a revolutionary, fast to use interface for selecting the recording format, resolution, frame rate and more! Simply tap on RAW or ProRes and the appropriate variations such as compression ratios will light up underneath them so you can make your selection and then choose the resolution. The record tab also lets you adjust the dynamic range for film or video, set the window sensor mode, frame rate, preferred card recording options, time lapse, sharpening level and more!


Flexible Monitoring Options

Adjust text, overlays and other options for all outputs!

The monitor tab gives you total control over what is displayed on the built in LCD touchscreen, the front SDI for the viewfinder and the main SDI output. Each output can have independent overlays and you can select to send a clean feed, zebra, focus assist, frame guides and more to any or all outputs. You can even set the resolution and choose LUTs for each output! In addition, you can also set to scale down the image display so that the interactive HUD is outside of the image area and is not covered by it. URSA Mini can even perform an anamorphic de-squeeze when shooting with anamorphic lenses! Best of all, you can define different display status text for the cinematographer and the director, and then send that information out to different SDI outputs, so the right people see the right information!


Professional Audio Control

Adjust audio input and monitoring settings!

You can quickly adjust audio levels using the interactive HUD, but for complete control over audio settings, you can also use the audio tab on the dashboard. You can change inputs from camera mic to XLR, adjust headphone and speaker levels, mic levels, low cut filter and more. When adjusting XLR settings, you can choose whether you want to use mic or line levels independently for channel 1 and 2, turn on 48v of phantom power so you can use microphones that are not self powered, and adjust the gain for each input!


General Camera Setup

The quickest way to set up your camera!

URSA Mini makes it super fast to get your camera out of the box, set up and ready to go! The setup tab on the dashboard lets your enter the date and time, select the language, shutter measurement, electrical system, battery display, timecode and more. If you’re using URSA Mini on a multi camera shoot with a live production switcher such as ATEM, you can set the camera ID so it can receive tally and control signals from the switcher. You can also default to sending color bars rather than a preview image, adjust camera to talkback sound levels, reference timing and more. You can even completely customize the behavior of the camera’s external F1 and F2 buttons to trigger presets, adjust values up and down, or to toggle certain features on and off!


Save and Load Presets

Now you can create setups for different users and productions!

Different operators like to set up their cameras in different ways. Plus, different shows also can require different setups too! With URSA Mini, you can create and save 12 custom presets by using the presets tab in the dashboard. Presets can even be saved to CF cards and loaded on different cameras, making it fast to set up multiple cameras so they all have the same settings! If you often switch cameras, you can save your own presets to a CF card and load them on any URSA Mini on any shoot!


Built in 33 Point 3D LUTs

Instantly load and apply LUTs to any output!

3D color lookup tables (LUTs) are used to adjust the color of the output so the director or cinematographer can see a certain “look” as they’re shooting. LUTs are extremely useful when shooting RAW or when using “film” dynamic range, both of which generally look flat when they’re shot. By using LUTs, the director and cinematographer can get a better idea of what the footage will look like after it has been color corrected in post production with software such as DaVinci Resolve. URSA Mini can apply 3D LUTs independently to the LCD touchscreen, the front SDI (viewfinder) and main SDI in a deep 33 point precision allowing them to be used for high end feature film work.
