Designed for Production!
URSA has been designed to solve the problem of moving large amounts of equipment between locations when shooting. You get a full size professional production camera with all the accessories such as a large 10 inch on set monitor, two built in recorders, professional audio recording, built in microphones, scopes, dual status screens and more! Because so many accessories are built into URSA, it’s been designed to be fully upgradable so you can remove and upgrade the sensor and lens mount in the future! This upgradable design means we have invested more into URSA’s design because you don’t need to throw it away when you buy your next camera!
Rugged, lightweight and future proof!
URSA features a super strong aluminum alloy design so you get a durable camera that’s ready for shooting in all conditions. The built in liquid cooling system keeps internal components cool, even when running sustained high frame rates, and thermal energy is piped into a large internal heat exchanger in the rear of the camera that allows conversion cooling with little fan use required. URSA is also loaded with lots of extra processing power plus advanced SATA 3 based CFast recorders that are faster than currently available cards, so you get a future proof camera with power to handle new emerging formats and sensor upgrades when they become available!
Upgradable Sensor and Lens Mount
World’s first user field upgradable camera!
URSA’s revolutionary camera turret is a lens mount and imaging sensor built together, into a single replaceable module that attaches to the camera with 4 simple bolts! Having a replaceable turret on a professional production camera means that you can choose to upgrade your camera as different sensor and lens mount options become available. Changing sensors is as simple as removing the bolts and unplugging the assembly, so for the first time you can upgrade your own camera when it suits you because you can do it yourself! That means your investment in the camera body is protected and you get a completely new camera with the latest sensor technology just by replacing the turret!
Large 10” Viewfinder
Extremely bright fold out monitor with super wide viewing angle
Now you’ll always have a massive on set monitor with you at all times because URSA includes an incredibly bright and wide viewing angle 10” monitor. Now you can totally eliminate the need to carry around extra monitoring when shooting! The built in monitor simply folds out and pivots up and down making shooting down low, or high above crowds super easy. The large screen is full HD resolution for crystal clear images, ensuring your exposure settings are perfect and your focus is super sharp. The large monitor makes framing shots easy and you can also use the large monitor to playback shots to your entire crew. When you’re ready to move to a new location, simply fold in the monitor and go!
Advanced Touch Screen Interface
Dual screens for complete control
Blackmagic URSA features the world’s most advanced camera interface! You get camera settings, control, technical monitoring and more on screens built into each side of the camera. The left screen allows the DOP to see camera settings, scopes and status with full touch screen control. The status display on this screen includes information such as large timecode display, format, frame rate information as well as the histogram scopes for exposure, spectrum scope for focus and audio level over time to show audio clipping. For the camera assistant, there is a second similar LCD on the other side of the camera with all these features that works completely independently of the screen for the DOP!
Industry Standard Connections
Connect without expensive custom cables
URSA features industry standard broadcast quality connectors so you can connect without buying expensive custom cables! Having standard connections on location is important because you never know what equipment you’re going to need to connect to. You get the latest technology 12G-SDI video connections and separate HD-SDI output and 12V power for adding an external electronic viewfinder. Also included are 2 professional XLR balanced analog audio inputs with switchable phantom power for professional microphones. URSA also includes LANC, a industry standard 4 pin XLR power connector and more. No matter where in the world you travel, you’ll always have the confidence you can connect your camera!
External Mounting Points
Attach all kinds of third party accessories!
When you’re operating as part of a large crew, or flying solo, connecting extra items such as external microphones, fiber converters for live production or large lenses is critical. URSA includes the standard 3/8” threaded points positioned over the top of the camera to make it easy to add extra items as you need to. Underneath the camera are lock plates for using quick lock tripod mounts, so you can snap URSA into a tripod mount and remove in less than a second. That’s perfect when shooting on the go. On the rear of the camera are multiple screw mount points for adding V-Lock or Anton Bauer battery mount plates. For large lens and matte box use, production rail mounts are included in the tripod mount point under the camera, and all compatible third party rails are supported!
