URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 features a massive number of controls intuitively positioned on the side of the camera so you can adjust most settings by feel, without ever having to take your eyes off the action. URSA Mini Pro is lightweight and comfortable enough to use all day, has controls that are extremely fast to use, and image quality that’s far superior to broadcast cameras costing ten times more!
URSA Mini Pro cameras are “three cameras in one” because they combine high end digital film quality with the features and controls broadcasters need. They’re 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 cameras go beyond standard Ultra HD broadcast quality because they give you 4.6K resolution with 15 stops of dynamic range. Plus, the super wide color gamut and Blackmagic Design Generation 4 color science give you incredibly accurate skin tones and stunning, lifelike color so you always capture cinematic quality images. The super compact body features broadcast camera controls 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!
The URSA Mini family are powerful and robust cameras that are available in two different models, so you can choose the camera that best suits your needs. The affordable URSA Mini 4K features a fixed EF mount along with dual CFast card recorders. URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 adds built in ND filters, an interchangeable lens mount, dual CFast and UHS‑II SD card recorders, and a massive set of broadcast features and external controls. URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 is the ultimate high end digital film camera with second generation electronics, a high frame rate image sensor, and a USB‑C for recording directly to external drives.
URSA Mini Pro is designed to include everything you need in a handheld camera so you can take it anywhere! Unlike cheap plastic cameras, the evenly weighted camera body is made out of a super tough magnesium alloy. It’s a true professional camera with full redundancy on every control, even the power switch! Plus, the familiar broadcast switches and controls allow full setting changes without having to take the camera off your shoulder! There’s an external high visibility backlit LCD status display so you can see critical shooting information, and a 4” foldout touch screen for reviewing shots. That means 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!
When it comes to image quality, URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 operates at a higher resolution and dynamic range that is well beyond traditional motion picture film! You get a 4.6K image sensor that captures up to 4608 x 2592 pixels, which is bigger than full size DCI 4K! The sensor features a massive 15 stops of dynamic range and support for up to 3200 ISO, making URSA Mini Pro G2 perfect for high dynamic range (HDR) projects. 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. In addition, URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 supports high frame shooting at up to 300 frames per second and even better color fidelity! You can also choose the lower cost URSA Mini 4K model with 12 stops of dynamic range when you don’t need the performance and are on a tighter budget.
URSA Mini Pro G2 feature an incredibly wide color gamut that captures more of the visible color spectrum than Rec. 2020, which is vastly larger than the P3 digital cinema color space! Blackmagic Design Generation 4 color science is used to process the raw sensor data, enabling amazingly rich skin tones, natural color response and enormous amounts of dynamic range. Whether you’re shooting a Hollywood blockbuster, an indie film, high end commercial, or a broadcast television show, URSA Mini Pro’s combination of resolution, dynamic range and color gamut delivers amazingly rich and lifelike images!
URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 is a more powerful second generation camera with entirely new electronics and a new high performance image sensor that lets you shoot crystal clear slow motion footage. You can record full sensor 4.6K images up to 120 frames per second, windowed DCI 4K at up to 150 frames per second, and regular windowed 1080 HD at an amazing 300 frames per second. A dedicated off-speed button on the camera’s body lets you quickly switch between your preset high frame rate and regular frame rate shooting! When it comes to high frame rate shooting, URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 is ideal for fast action sports, high speed nature photography and more!
URSA Mini Pro G2 features both dual CFast 2.0 recorders and dual UHS‑II SD card recorders so you can choose the media that works best for you. CFast cards are ideal for full resolution Blackmagic RAW 12-bit recording, while SD UHS‑II cards are inexpensive and commonly available, making them perfect for recording Blackmagic RAW 5:1, 8:1 or 12:1 files. URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 also features a USB‑C connection so you can connect and record directly to portable SSD drives. Simply choose the media type, insert the cards and start shooting! With dual slots for each media type, you never have to stop recording because when the first card is full, it automatically continues onto the next card. You can even swap the full card for an empty one, all without having to stop recording!
URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 features an innovative high speed USB‑C Expansion Port. USB‑C is quickly becoming standard on all modern computers and devices. The massive bandwidth of USB‑C makes it possible to connect external accessories such as flash drives and SSDs for significantly longer recording times. This can be important when shooting high quality lossless 12‑bit Blackmagic RAW or high frame rate 300 fps images. Best of all, when you’re done shooting you can use the same drive for editing and post production!
The optional Blackmagic URSA Mini SSD Recorder lets you record 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files onto standard 2.5 inch SSD Media with your URSA Mini or URSA Mini Pro cameras! That means you can use commonly available and inexpensive high capacity solid state media! Unlike other types of cards, SSD media is super fast so you can record full resolution 4K and 4.6K 12-bit Blackmagic RAW files. Plus, SSD media comes in much larger sizes so you can record longer without having to change cards! The unique design of the Blackmagic URSA Mini SSD Recorder allows it to attach directly to the back of your URSA Mini or URSA Mini Pro between the camera and the battery. It uses 6G-SDI as a data link to the camera so you don’t have to worry about starting or stopping the SSD recorder. Everything is setup and controlled directly from the camera!
The built in 4 inch fold out touchscreen on URSA Mini Pro G2 and the 5 inch fold out touchscreen on URSAMini 4K are super bright, high resolution color displays with a wide viewing angle that makes them perfect for monitoring and reviewing shots on set! The screen can also show you a “heads up display” overlay with critical information such as format, frame rate, timecode, ISO and more. You even get a histogram, card recording status indicators and audiometers! The fold out touchscreen lets you use the incredible new URSA Mini operating software so you get super fast access to every camera function, ATEM broadcast switcher integration features for live broadcast, digital slate for metadata management and more!

You get a high resolution 1920 x 1080 color OLED display matched with precision glass optics, adjustable diopter and built in digital focus chart so you get perfect focus every time.

On the front right side of the cameras is a 12 pin Hi-rose control connector for broadcast lenses. There’s also a 4 pin XLR DC output and an HD-SDI monitoring output that are located in the perfect position for connecting an optional viewfinder or on set monitor. The 12G‑SDI output handles all formats up to 2160p60 using a single BNC cable, and also switches to 6G‑SDI or HD‑SDI depending on the shooting format.
