Big camera features in a
lightweight portable design
URSA Mini gives you all the features of a full size production camera miniaturized into a lightweight, compact design that makes it easier for small crews and single operators to shoot incredible quality digital film! Like URSA, URSA Mini has also been designed to include much of the extra on set equipment that you normally need to carry around and that limits your mobility. URSA Mini is all about mobility and being able to move from location to location very fast. URSA Mini is less intimidating than a larger camera so it can often be used for difficult subjects.
A handheld camera that’s tough enough for anything!
URSA Mini’s body is built out of a super strong magnesium alloy, making 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. URSA Mini features two high speed CFast slots for storing images, a brilliant 5” fold out touchscreen, professional connections and 9 mounting points for adding accessories and building custom rigs.
Ergonomically designed for handheld or shoulder use
URSA Mini has been designed from the ground up to be comfortable enough to use all day and small enough to be taken anywhere! The body is lightweight and perfectly balanced making it easy to use for handheld shots. The optional shoulder mount kit is ergonomically 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!
Full HD fold out screen
for easy monitoring
The super bright full HD resolution 5 inch 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 down low or high above crowds. The screen has an extra 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 slo-mo 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!
Advanced Touchscreen Interface
No more complicated buttons and menus!
Blackmagic URSA Mini features the same advanced camera interface found on the full size URSA. The 5” fold out touchscreen can be used to monitor video and to change camera settings. Setting up and using URSA Mini is easier because all settings are laid out logically and organized so everything you need is exactly where you’d expect it! You get timecode overlays, audio meters, status indicators, histogram scopes and more!
Side Hand Grip
Comfortable and lightweight
for handheld shooting!
URSA Mini includes a side hand grip 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. That means 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. If you prefer, you can replace the hand grip with custom third party handles.
Optional accessories in the same visual language as URSA Mini
You can customize your URSA Mini 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 low near the ground easier. You can also add a shoulder mount with integrated quick release mount 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 that allows perfect focus in all kinds of ambient light levels.
Includes all the connections you need for even the biggest rig
Unlike other compact cameras that require custom cables, URSA Mini 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 also includes LANC for remote camera and lens control, 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.
External Mount Points
Use the widest range of accessories
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 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 from the tripod to your shoulder in seconds!
