Bluetooth for URSA Mini Pro
When we recently launched Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro, we kept its Bluetooth feature secret until now. We have developed a new iPad app that gives you full remote control of the camera settings as well as metadata entry. We are also going to open the protocol to developers who want to use the API to customize their own control solutions.

With a fully open API and developer support for bluetooth on URSA Mini Pro, customers can build applications to remotely adjust camera settings, control the built in DaVinci Resolve color corrector, add metadata, sync cameras and much more! The possibilities are endless and we’re excited to see what you’re going to make with it!

The world’s first digital film camera with professional broadcast camera features and controls.
URSA Mini Pro is a professional digital film camera that combines incredible 4.6K image quality with the features and controls of a traditional broadcast camera! You get a Super 35mm 4.6K sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range that’s perfect for feature films and can also be instantly switched to traditional video mode for regular video work. Also included are built in ND filters, user changeable lens mount, plus RAW and ProRes format recording to dual media CFast or SD cards. URSA Mini Pro is a perfectly balanced, compact body that’s comfortable enough to be used all day!

URSA Mini Pro is “three cameras in one” because it combines high end digital film quality with the ergonomics and features broadcasters need. It’s ideal for any kind of work from high end feature films, television shows and commercials, to independent films, broadcast news, and even studio and live production! URSA Mini Pro features beyond Ultra HD 4.6K resolution plus 15 stops of dynamic range, all with a super wide color gamut and DaVinci color science so you always capture cinematic quality images. The super compact body features broadcast camera ergonomics and advanced operating software that make it faster to set up and use than any other camera! Whether you’re on set, on location or shooting run and gun, URSA Mini Pro has the image quality and features you need to work on any type of project!

URSA Mini Pro is designed to include everything you need in a handheld camera so you can take it anywhere.It’s a true professional camera with full redundancy on every control, even the power switch! Plus, the tactile controls allow full setting changes without having to take the camera off your shoulder! There’s an external high visibility LCD status display so you can see critical shooting information, and a 4” foldout touch screen for reviewing shots so you don’t have to carry an extra on-set monitor! You get professional connections such as 12G-SDI, XLR audio, a built in high quality microphone and more. The optional electronic viewfinder and shoulder mount kit lets you go from tripod to handheld shooting in seconds, or you can turn URSA Mini Pro into the ultimate live production camera by adding an URSA Studio Viewfinder!

URSA Mini Pro features high quality neutral density (ND) filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. The 2, 4 and 6 stop filters have been specifically designed to match the colorimetry and color science of URSA Mini Pro, providing you with additional latitude, even under harsh lighting conditions.

he ND filters are true optical filters with a precision mechanism that quickly moves them into place when the ND filter dial is turned. The filter settings can even be displayed as either an ND number, stop reduction or fraction on the LCD!

URSA Mini Pro features powerful tactile control buttons, switches, knobs and dials, giving you direct access to the most important camera settings. The controls are laid out in a logical order that makes them easy to remember, so you’ll be able to adjust settings, use ND filters, change frame rate and even snap a still photo without having to look at the buttons or take the camera off of your shoulder. The external controls are so fast to use, you don’t even have to stop shooting! That’s what makes URSA Mini Pro both a powerful broadcast and studio camera, as well as a digital film camera!

URSA Mini Pro accepts high quality EF photographic lenses, large PL cinema lenses, and even B4 broadcast lenses, all with the same camera! URSA Mini Pro comes with an EF mount and you can purchase optional PL and B4 lens mounts separately. With URSA Mini Pro, you get a single camera that works with virtually all professional lenses so you can choose precisely the lens you need!

The status display is a high visibility LCD screen that’s designed to be easily seen, even in bright light! The status display shows record timecode, locked timecode and reference timecode, along with the current shooting frame rate, shutter angle, aperture, white balance, ISO and IRIS. It also features a battery indicator, card recording status and audio meters for monitoring levels.

URSA Mini Pro designed with Cinematic 4.6K Sensor that features a massive 15 stops of dynamic range, making it perfect for high dynamic range (HDR) projects. The built in active refrigeration ensures maximum dynamic range and low noise so you get incredibly clean pictures with amazing detail in both the dark shadows and bright highlight areas.

URSA Mini Pro can shoot at high frame rates and then play it back at the edit frame rate so you get smooth slow motion video that’s crystal clear.

The built in 4” fold out touchscreen URSA Mini Pro and the 5” fold out touchscreen on URSA Mini are super bright, high resolution color displays with a wide viewing angle that makes them perfect for monitoring and reviewing shots on set!

BlackMagic URSA Mini Pro Review


**Admin** 06/03/2017
URSA Upgrade Program
With regard to the URSA Mini Pro product launch and Blackmagic said URSA Upgrade at USD3495/SGD4970 , the intention is to offer current existing URSA users who have been asking about the 4.6K turret upgrade, which Blackmagic had announced previously.

When developing URSA Mini Pro, Blackmagic came to realize that this new body with its user interchangeable mount, ND filters amongst other new features clearly provide a newer and better camera system than the URSA after a supposed 4.6K turret upgrade.

Therefore, Blackmagic have decide to offer the current URSA customer a promotional upgrade price of USD 3495/SGD4970 to purchase the URSA Mini Pro 4.6K. Blackmagic think this is a much more responsible approach then to let customers upgrade their Turret 4.6K at USD 2495 and then to find out we have URSA MINI pro.

Therefore, if there is any URSA users who wishes to exercise this option, they should approach any of our resellers as usual.
They do not have to give us they URSA.

Customer should provide following details for verification purposes.
1. URSA Model
2. URSA Serial Number
3. Proof of purchase if any.
4. Photo of the URSA
5. Name of owner
6. Contact number and email of owner.

We will process it as long as they have a valid ownership.

Please feel free to contact me should you require any further assistance.
