revolution in digital film with a 12,288 x 6480
12K Super 35 sensor and 14 stops of dynamic
range, built into the award winning URSA Mini
body. The combination of 80 megapixels per
frame, new color science and the flexibility of
Blackmagic RAW makes working with 12K a reality.
Oversampling from 12K gives you the best 8K
and 4K images with the subtle skin tones and
extraordinary detail of high end still cameras.
You can shoot at 60 fps in 12K, 110 fps in 8K
and up to 220 fps in 4K Super 16.
Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K features an
interchangeable PL mount, as well as built in ND
filters, dual CFast and UHS‑II SD card
recorders, a SuperSpeed USB‑C expansion port and
more. DaVinci Resolve Studio is included for
creative control through post from editing to
color, VFX and more!
Film, Extreme Resolution
URSA Mini Pro 12K extreme resolution goes well
beyond traditional motion picture film! You get
the benefits of shooting with film including
incredible detail, wide dynamic range and rich,
deep color. Perfect for feature films, episodic
television and immersive, large format IMAX. The
incredible definition around objects makes it
ideal for working with green screen and VFX
including compositing live action and CGI.
Super sampling at 12K means you not only get
better color and resolution at 8K, but also a
smoothness that comes from making aliasing
invisible. This new generation of digital film
technology ushers in an analog style purity and
subtlety to deliver a better than film
Cinematic Super 35
The Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K features a
revolutionary new sensor with a native
resolution of 12,288 x 6480, which is an
incredible 80 megapixels per frame! The Super 35
sensor has a superb 14 stops of dynamic range
and a native ISO of 800. The new 12K sensor has
equal amounts of red, green and blue pixels and
is optimized for images at multiple resolutions.
You can shoot 12K at 60 fps or use in-sensor
scaling to allow 8K or 4K RAW at up to 110 fps
without cropping or changing your field of view.
URSA Mini Pro’s interchangeable lens mount lets
you choose from the widest range of vintage and
modern cinema lenses, so you can capture every
ounce of character and detail from your favorite
Shoot in 12K, Edit on a
The Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K sensor and
Blackmagic RAW were designed together to make 12
bit RAW workflows in 12K effortless. As an
incredibly efficient next generation codec
Blackmagic RAW lets you shoot 12K and edit on a
laptop, a capability that simply isn’t possible
with other codecs. The massive resolution of the
sensor means you can reframe shots in post for
delivery in 8K and 4K.
It’s like a multi
camera shoot with only one camera. And it’s
perfect for great looking vertical and square
video, too. The advanced design of the sensor
and Blackmagic RAW means that you can work in
any resolution in post production instantly,
without rendering, while retaining the full
sensor’s color accuracy.
Blackmagic RAW Fueled Image Capture
Only Blackmagic RAW
makes cinema quality 12‑bit, 80 megapixel images
at up to 60 frames a reality! Constant quality
Q0 and Q5 options and new Q1 and Q3 lock the
quality level, allowing compression to adapt,
matching the detail of the scene. Constant
bitrate encoding options 5:1, 8:1, 12:1 and the
new 18:1 are designed to give you the best
possible images with predictable and consistent
You can record RAW to two
cards simultaneously so you can shoot 12K or 8K
to either CFast or UHS‑II cards, even at high
frame rates! Blackmagic RAW stores camera
metadata, lens data, white balance, digital
slate information and custom LUTs to ensure
consistency of image on set and through post
Optimized for Fast
Flexible Post Production
RAW in 12K preserves the deepest control of
detail, exposure and color during post.
Oversampling means you get extremely sharp 8K
without harsh edges. Best of all, Blackmagic RAW is designed to accelerate
12K for post production, making it as easy to
work with as standard HD or Ultra HD files.
It is highly optimized, multi‑threaded,
works across multiple CPU cores and is also GPU
accelerated to work with Apple Metal, CUDA and
OpenCL. So you can always work with your camera
RAW files without having to make proxies.
Blackmagic RAW 12K images provide unprecedented
resolution and quality for color, keying,
compositing, reframing, stabilization and
tracking in 4K or 8K.
Resolution at Higher Frame Rates
Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K is multiple cameras
in one, shooting standard resolutions and frame
rates in 4K, 8K and even insanely detailed 12K!
With a massive 80 megapixels per frame at 60 fps
in RAW you can capture perfect stills and motion
shots in a single camera at the same time! You
can shoot up to 60 fps in 12K 12,288 x 6480
For higher frame rates, you can
shoot 110 fps at 8192 x 4320, 140 fps at 8192 x
3408 and even window the sensor to Super 16 to
capture 4K at an incredible 220 fps at 4096 x
2160 DCI! URSA Mini Pro 12K has flexible frame
rate and resolution options, and captures with
improved motion rendering which means that you
get smoother edges in 8K and 4K even at lower
High Band Width
Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro
12K is the ultimate high bandwidth recorder with
3 options for recording 12K, which contains
almost 10 times the resolution of Ultra HD. You
get dual built in CFast and UHS‑II SD card
recorders, and a SuperSpeed USB‑C expansion port
for recording to fast SATA and NVMe drives.
With “Record RAW on 2 Cards” turned on, URSA
Mini Pro 12K can record simultaneously across
two cards up to an incredible 900MB/s to 2 CFast
cards, or an impressive 500MB/s to 2 UHS‑II SD
