URSA Mini's body is built out of a super strong magnesium alloy, making it
durable enough to use in the most extreme environments! The magnesium alloy also makes it lightweight and helps to keep the camera cool by piping heat into an
exchanger that allows convection cooling and heat dissipation from the camera's body. URSA Mini features two high speed CFast slots for storing images, a
brilliant 5" fold out touchscreen, professional connections and 9 mounting
points for adding accessories and building custom rigs.

sliders, matte boxes, 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!
Cinematic 4.6K Sensor
Capture incredible digital film images with 15 stops of dynamic range
URSA Mini operates at a resolution and dynamic range that goes well beyond traditional motion picture film. You get a 4.6K image sensor that captures up to
4608 x 2592 pixels, that's bigger 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. Built in 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. You can also choose a lower cost 4K model of URSA Mini with 12 stops of dynamic range when
you don't need the performance and are on a tighter budget.
High Frame Rate Recording
Capture the action with crystal clear slow motion
URSA Mini can shoot at high frame rates and then play it back at the edit frame rate so you get smooth slow motion video. Simply set the sensor frame rate to
get 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! When you need even more dramatic, higher frame rate slow motion shooting, you can use the regular URSA which can record high resolution 4.6K images at an amazing 100 frames per second!
Stunning Ultra HD
Higher resolution creates smooth vivid Ultra HD images
Because URSA Mini features a 4.6K native resolution image sensor it can capture much higher resolution than Ultra HD. This means when you're working in Ultra HD
you have a lot of extra resolution that can be used through the de-bayering image processing so you can recover full color for incredible images. The wide
dynamic range blows away high end broadcast cameras to give you dramatically better images that can be colored corrected for a truly cinematic look. For fa
ster post production, quickly switch settings to use regular video dynamic range, so you can shoot great looking video without
the need for color correction.
Non Stop Recording
Change memory cards even while recording
Blackmagic URSA Mini features dual CFast 2.0 recorders so you never have to stop recording when you need to change the media! When the current card is full,
recording continues onto the second card so you can swap out the full card and just keep shooting. URSA Mini uses the latest, incredibly fast CFast 2.0
technology for recording speeds up to 350 MB/s. You get perfect high frame rate RAW recording and instant play back on the built in 5 inch screen. 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!
Touchscreen Control Change settings and monitoring with the touch of your finger
URSA Mini high resolution 5 inch fold out monitor
includes a touch screen so you get easy access to the revolutionary URSA camera interface. All of your settings, controls and monitoring tools are at your

use! 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

shooting! URSA Mini includes a side hand grip with record start/stop, iris and focus buttons built in. The handle is mounted to the body of the camera using a
standard rosette and also has a LANC connection. That means you can remove the handle and mount a custom rig directly to the rosette or you can relocate the
handle to the rosette at the front of the camera on the optional shoulder mount kit. If you prefer, you can replace the hand grip with custom third party handles.
