Now it’s possible to use digital film for any production
URSA Mini features a state of the art, high resolution image sensor with extremely wide dynamic range that makes it perfect for use on the highest end feature films, television shows, music videos and commercials. URSA Mini is still affordable enough for indie filmmakers, documentarians and even broadcast news crews. Because it’s an URSA digital film camera, everything you need is built in, so now you don’t need to rent and carry around a lot of extra expensive gear for your shoot!
Blockbuster feature films from a lightweight handheld camera!
URSA Mini gives you uncompromising digital film quality whether you’re shooting solo in a tight location or on a sound stage with a full crew. Just like the full sized URSA, you get an incredible 4.6K sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range. URSA Mini shoots at DCI 4K frame sizes and beyond, plus because it’s a miniaturized digital film camera you can get those unique hand held and tight location shots that you couldn’t get with a full size camera. The PL lens mount lets you use modern, cutting edge feature film quality optics, or even a wide range of vintage glass for shooting period dramas and recreating historical styles.
Add a premium look to major global brands
The difference between a luxury brand and a discount brand is how the customers see the product advertised. Luxury brands use digital film and post production color correction to create a look for their products that is cinematic and makes customers believe in the quality of the brand. Any product can benefit from that luxury treatment by using URSA Mini to shoot the products commercial on digital film.
Capture revealing interviews with raw emotion
For the best documentaries you need to create a level of trust and intimacy between the director and subject that simply isn’t possible with a large crew and intimidating camera rig. The light weight and small size of URSA Mini makes it unobtrusive and perfect for capturing the emotion of an interview. URSA Mini can go from tripod to shoulder to handheld in seconds so you can instantly move where the story takes you. With dual CFast recorders you can keep recording during important interviews or events because you can keep changing the full card without needing to stop recording.
Get blockbuster film quality with an indie crew size
As an independent filmmaker you have to balance creative vision with tight budgets, small crews and insane shooting schedules. Now, with URSA Mini, you can get the quality, resolution and dynamic range of Super 35mm film in a compact design that’s perfect for single camera operators and small crews! Choose either EF or PL lens mounts so you can work with readily available photo lenses or professional cinematic lenses. You also get built in monitoring, histograms, focus peaking, audio recording and more so you don’t have to rent additional, expensive equipment. That means you’ll have more money to put back into the story on the screen!
Better Corporate Video
Improve your brand’s image with greater production value
Now you can elevate your brand with cinematic production values in corporate video! Imagine being able to create your own product videos at full Super 35mm digital film quality. You get a self contained camera that includes everything you need, including an incredible 5 inch fold out on set monitor, dual RAW and ProRes recorders, and an amazing 4.6K imaging sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range that will make your services and products look amazing!

Boost your band’s image with incredible production values
The music industry today is very different from the past and a good quality music video by an unsigned band posted on YouTube can break a band into the mainstream in the biggest way possible. That means the production values of a band’s very first music video are absolutely critical to the perception and style that the band is conveying. URSA Mini is perfect for this role because it’s a true digital film camera, it’s affordable, and it includes everything you need to finish a great music video. You’ll be able to capture the energy and excitement of the performance and you’ll be able to shoot from multiple angles and in locations that would be impossible with a larger camera!
The best camera for live studio broadcasts!
Broadcast news and magazine style talk shows need future proof cameras that can capture the incredible color and detail of Ultra HD! URSA Mini is unique because it’s a digital film camera with wide dynamic range that’s also a studio camera for live production. The built in DaVinci primary color corrector, means it can operate as a conventional CCU style camera or go well beyond those basic controls with full YRGB lift, gamma and gain adjustments, all internal to the camera. Now you get the same imaging and processing that feature films get, all in a studio camera. With the new URSA Studio Viewfinder, there is no limitation to the professional features because you still get all the controls you expect in a studio camera. URSA Mini is also flexible with an optional B4 lens mount, B4 lens control connection, 12G-SDI connections and much more!
