Highly Customizable 

The camera is completely customizable, enabling the user to create a rig that is built specifically for each production. You can add accessories like the Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder and Blackmagic URSA Mini Shoulder Kit (sold separately), or choose from hundreds of third party accessories. URSA Mini has (9) standard 1/4”-20 threaded mounting points on the top and bottom of the camera so you can mount it directly to a tripod as well as add accessories such as rails, sliders, matteboxes, microphones, ring lights, batteries and more. Whether you’re building a feature film rig or outfitting the camera for an ENG style shoot, URSA Mini has all of the mount points and connections you need. 

4.6K Image Sensor

The URSA Mini features a 4.6K image sensor that captures up to 4608 x 2592 pixels, (greater than full DCI 4K). The sensor features global shutter up to 30 frames per second and rolling shutter up to 60 frames per second with 15 stops of dynamic range. This gives you dramatically better images that can be color corrected for a truly cinematic look. For faster post production, quickly switch settings to use regular video dynamic range, so you can shoot great looking video without the need for color correction. Integrated refrigeration cooling ensures maximum dynamic range so you get incredibly clean pictures with amazing detail in both the dark shadows and bright highlight areas of the image.

HFR Recording

URSA Mini can shoot at high frame rates, then play back footage at the edit frame rate to preview slow motion footage. Simply set the sensor frame rate to achieve different types of slow motion effects. URSA Mini can capture full resolution 4.6K recordings at up to 60 frames per second, and up to 120 frames per second in regular 1080 HD.

Non-Stop Recording 

Blackmagic URSA Mini features dual CFast 2.0 recorders so you never have to stop recording to change the media. When the current card is full, recording continues onto the second card, allowing you to swap out the full card and continue shooting. URSA Mini uses CFast 2.0 technology for recording speeds up to 350 MB/s, with high frame rate RAW recording and instant playback on the integrated 5” touchscreen. Files can be saved as lossless 12-bit CinemaDNG RAW for the highest possible quality, or as ProRes for easy post production workflows with minimum storage requirements. 

High Resolution Viewfinder Available

The optional Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder has been designed as the perfect match for URSA and URSA Mini digital film cameras, featuring a 1920 x 1080 color OLED display matched with precision optics, adjustable diopter, and integrated digital focus chart. To preserve OLED screen life there’s a built-in sensor that activates the display only when you’re looking through the viewfinder, and it also has an integrated record light. The Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder is adjustable so it can be used with the left or right eye. 

Touchscreen Control

The high resolution 5” foldout touchscreen monitor provides easy access to the URSA camera interface. All of your settings, controls and monitoring tools are at your fingertips. That means you don’t have to hunt through confusing menus to make changes. You can see and change all camera settings, view timecode, histograms for checking levels, audio levels and a focus peaking indicator for checking focus.

Professional Connections

Blackmagic URSA Mini features multiple connections, such as 12G-SDI out, HD-SDI monitoring out, (2) LANC inputs, balanced XLR audio with phantom power, timecode in and reference input. On the front right side of the camera the 4-pin XLR DC and HD-SDI monitoring output are located in the perfect position for connecting to an optional viewfinder or monitor. The 12G-SDI output handles up to 2160p60 using a single BNC cable and also switches to 6G-SDI or HD-SDI depending on the shooting format. 

Advanced 12G-SDI 

12G-SDI is 8x faster than standare HD-SDI, making it fast enough for Ultra HD video at up to 60 frames per second over a single regular SDI cable. The high quality BNC connections are multi-rate and can automatically switch between 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI, and regular HD-SDI equipment. That makes URSA Mini compatible with all of your existing HD and Ultra HD equipment so you can plug it into things like ATEM live production switchers, on-set monitors, decks and more.

Professional Audio

URSA Mini features high quality integrated microphones and professional audio recording. Use the built-in stereo microphone to record natural location sound or connect professional microphones using (2) wide dynamic range XLR mic inputs. The XLR connections feature 48V switchable phantom power for use with everything from shotgun to wireless lav mics. You can quickly adjust levels using the physical knobs and monitor audio via onscreen meters.

Embedded Metadata

The URSA’s touchscreen makes it astonishingly simple to set up and input metadata for tagging clips. Metadata is saved directly in the video files so you don’t have to worry about managing extra sidecar files. You can import the files directly into software like DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro (not included), and Avid Media Composer (not included) then use the metadata to sort, search and find the clips you need so you can spend more time editing.

Shoulder Mount Kit Available 

URSA Mini features multiple 1/4”-20 mount points on the bottom so you can attach it directly to any tripod plate. When you need to rapidly move URSA Mini from tripod to handheld and back multiple times on a shoot, the best solution is to use the optional Blackmagic URSA Mini Shoulder Kit (sold separately). This kit includes the shoulder pad with ARRI-style rosettes, rail mounts, and integrated quick lock release attachment points so you can instantly latch it into a quick release plate without needing to remove the shoulder pad. The kit also includes a top handle for carrying the camera and attaching additional accessories. Contact an AbelCine salesperson for details & availability. 

Flexible Power

URSA Mini features a 4-pin XLR industry standard power connector that is compatible with 12V to 30V external power supplies, enabling the user to power the camera with existing power supplies and batteries. URSA Mini uses the same battery power connector and mounting points on the rear of the camera as are found on the URSA, so you can use the same range of battery plates from many manufacturers (such as IDX, Frezzi, Anton/Bauer, et al.). You can also add the optional Blackmagic URSA V-Lock Battery Plate (sold separately). 

Includes DaVinci Resolve 

URSA Mini includes the full version of DaVinci Resolve Studio for Mac and Windows, for editing, color grading, media management, mastering, and delivery. DaVinci Resolve can easily handle the 12‑bit log RAW images from URSA Mini, allowing you to take full advantage of URSA Mini’s exceptional image quality and wide dynamic range. DaVinci Resolve features advanced, multi-layer timeline editing with powerful trimming tools, along with the industry’s leading suite of creative grading tools. The combination of URSA Mini and DaVinci Resolve provides a complete production and post-production solution.
