The Blackmagic URSA, the world’s first high end digital film camera designed to revolutionize workflow on set. Built to handle the ergonomics of large film crews as well as single person use, URSA has everything built in, including a massive 10" fold out on set monitor, a new user upgradeable 4.6K Super 35 image sensor with a massive 15 stops of dynamic range, 12G-SDI, internal dual RAW and ProRes recorders and more. Because the sensor and lens mount assembly can be changed, you can upgrade to the latest sensor technology in the future and keep your investment in the camera body.
Blackmagic URSA is designed to be used on high end feature films, commercials, episodic television production, documentaries, electronic news gathering, music videos and more. When used on jobs with a large crew you can easily dress the camera with high quality cinema lenses, rails, follow focus, matte boxes and more. With built in scopes for exposure, focus and audio levels, it’s easy for DOPs to get perfect results every time. The dedicated screen for camera assistants lets them check and update camera parameters independently of the DOP. If you’re shooting solo then the large fold out on set monitor, built in scopes and internal recorder means you don’t need any extra on set equipment because it’s all built into the camera. That’s a whole film set of equipment built into the one extremely portable design.
URSA now includes a new professional digital film 4.6K image sensor that captures a spectacular 4608 x 2592 pixels with 15 stops of dynamic range! That’s larger than DCI 4K! The sensor features an incredible 15 stops of dynamic range for true digital film imaging. The wide dynamic range is dramatically better than regular video cameras or even high end broadcast cameras, so you get dramatically better images that look like true digital film. The wide dynamic range preserves detail in dark shadows as well as bright highlights so you have a wider range of brightness levels to work with when color grading in post production. The extra large Super 35 size allows for creative shallow depth of field shooting and the high resolution 12-bit lossless CinemaDNG RAW recording means you get incredible quality! You can also record HD or Ultra HD using ProRes for easy post production workflow with broadcast quality images and minimum storage requirements.
