URSA Mini Pro has been designed to be the toughest and most fully featured camera available. Everything you need is built right in, so you don’t have to carry around a lot of extra production equipment. Plus, every single control on the camera is redundant, including the power, so if anything should go wrong in the field, you’ll still have backups to get the shot! You get dual card recorders, battery and power, multiple screens, fully redundant controls and you can even swap lens mounts, all built into a lightweight and super strong magnesium alloy body. URSA Mini Pro is the only camera in the world that combines digital film image quality with a durable compact high end broadcast style design that’s built for reliability, mobility and speed of use, so you can focus on being more creative!Find Reseller
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!
Traditional broadcast cameras have the most important controls on the outside of the camera body so you can quickly change settings without having to take your eyes off of the action! URSA Mini Pro features control buttons, switches and dials that are grouped logically, making them easy to remember. That means you’ll be able to use muscle memory to operate the camera without having to look at the buttons or hunt through menus! URSA Mini Pro combines the ergonomics of a broadcast camera with the quality of digital film so you get the best of both worlds!
When you’re in the middle of a shoot, you need to be able to quickly check important shooting and status information. The status screen on URSA Mini Pro features a bright, status display that’s designed to be easily seen, with or without the backlight on. You can see timecode, shutter and lens settings, battery, record status and audio levels at a glance. When shooting in a dimly lit environment, simply turn the backlight on to see the screen. When you’re outside, the backlight can be turned off for even more contrast, making it highly visible and crystal clear in broad daylight!
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!
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!
URSA Mini Pro has been designed from the ground up to be comfortable enough to use all day and small enough to be taken anywhere! The weight is evenly distributed so the camera is balanced, making it comfortable to use for both handheld and over the shoulder shooting. The optional shoulder mount kit is designed to help support the camera, making it a natural extension of your body. There’s even a quick release mount that lets you go from handheld to shoulder to tripod in seconds!
The bright high resolution fold out screen gives you a built in on set monitor so you don’t have to carry around extra equipment! The monitor simply folds out and pivots up and down, making it super easy to shoot either down low or up high above the crowd. The screen features a wide viewing angle and displays crystal clear images so that you can accurately check exposure, focus and framing. Instantly play back clips, even high frame rate slow motion shots, to make sure you get the perfect take then, when you’re ready to move to a new location, fold it up and go!
URSA Mini Pro features advanced operating software designed to make using your camera faster and more intuitive than ever! All important camera functions can be accessed with a single tap on the heads up display, there’s an elegant 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. Everything is logically laid out so you’ll never waste time going through confusing menus and settings again!
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!
URSA Mini Pro includes a side hand controller with record start/stop, iris and focus buttons built in. The handle is mounted to the body of the camera using a standard rosette and also has a LANC connection. This means that you can remove the handle and mount a custom rig directly to the rosette, or you can relocate the handle to the rosette at the front of the camera on the optional shoulder mount kit. You can even replace the hand grip with custom third party handles.
Unlike other compact cameras that require custom cables, URSA Mini Pro features industry standard broadcast quality connections so you can use cables you already have! You get the latest 12G-SDI and separate HD-SDI video outputs along with 12V power for connecting electronic viewfinders. For audio, there are 2 XLR balanced analog inputs with 48V of switchable phantom power for external microphones. URSA Mini Pro also includes a Hirose 12-pin lens control connector, LANC, a standard 4 pin XLR power connector and URSA battery plate internal power connector that lets you mount battery plates on the rear of the camera.
You can customize your URSA Mini Pro with genuine Blackmagic accessories that are designed to match and work perfectly with your camera. There’s a top mount handle that lets you carry the camera from the top so you can get shots from low down near the ground more easily. You can also add a shoulder mount with integrated quick release plate for tripods that lets you instantly switch from shoulder mount to tripod without having to change anything. The optional Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder features an incredibly high resolution display and precision optics that lets you find perfect focus in all kinds of lighting conditions. For broadcast work, you can even add the Blackmagic URSA Studio Viewfinder to turn URSA Mini Pro into the ultimate live production camera!
When you’re doing professional work you want to make sure you can securely connect the things you need, like external microphones, large lenses, and more. URSA Mini Pro can be customized with standard 3rd party camera accessories including rails and matte boxes so you can build a custom rig that fits your production! There are standard ¼” threaded points positioned over the top and bottom of the camera to make it easy to add the things you need. The optional shoulder mount kit also includes a quick lock tripod mount so you can take your fully rigged URSA Mini Pro from the tripod to your shoulder in seconds!
