Blackmagic URSA 4.6K PL
Introducing Blackmagic URSA 4.6K PL, 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 4.6K PL has everything built in, including a massive 10 inch 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!

Professional Digital Film Camera
Designed for feature film, television commercials and more!

Blackmagic URSA 4.6K PL 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!

Rethinking Camera Design
All your on set equipment built into one portable design!

The Blackmagic URSA 4.6K PL features a larger professional size that has the space for powerful cooling that allows higher frame rates while keeping the chassis cool and the fan super quiet. The machined aluminum design is incredibly strong and has been designed for large film crew use and to be field upgradable to new sensors by the user. Each area of the camera has been divided into separate DOP, camera assistant and audio engineer work stations. The DOP station features a large 10 inch fold out on set monitor and separate 5 inch screen for settings, camera status and scopes. The camera assist station features a separate screen for camera settings, status and scopes and an audio station features audio meters, controls and audio connections. The big screen means you don't need extra on set equipment so it's easy to move around quickly between shots. Simply fold in the monitor and go!

Shoot in incredible quality Ultra HD
Super 35 size sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range

URSA 4.6K PL 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!

Dual Recorders for Non Stop Recording
Keep recording forever so you never miss a critical event!

Blackmagic URSA 4.6K PL features dual recorders so you never need to stop recording to change media. That's critical if you are shooting an historical event, important interview or where you just cannot stop shooting! Simply load an empty CFast card into the second recorder and when the current card is full, the recording will continue onto the second card, allowing you to change out the full card and keep shooting! The built in recorders use new CFast card technology that allow recording up to 350 MB/s for incredible speeds, perfect for high frame rate RAW recording! Imagine shooting RAW and then playing back for the crew on the massive 10 inch screen!
