URSA Mini shoots up to 60 frames per second, has a super bright 5 inch foldout viewfinder, dual RAW and ProRes recorders and more. You can select from four models of URSA Mini with 4.6K or 4K image sensors and either EF or PL lens mounts.
Handheld Digital Film Camera
Blackmagic URSA Mini is designed to be used on feature films, television shows, commercials, indies, documentaries, music videos and more. The stunning quality of its 4.6K sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range lets you capture epic cinematic shots, while its compact size is perfect for solo shoots or smaller crews! You can easily customize URSA Mini with high quality cinema lenses, rails, matte boxes and more. The optional shoulder mount kit features a quick release mounting plate so you can go from handheld to shoulder or tripod in seconds, making it perfect for pickup and run shooting situations. It’s the handheld Super 35mm digital film camera that you can use anywhere and, because it’s an URSA, everything you need is built right in!
Revolutionary URSA Design
URSA Mini features a compact, perfectly balanced body made out of advanced technology magnesium alloys so it’s rugged, lightweight and comfortable enough to be used all day. Like all URSA cameras, it includes everything you need built right in! You get a super bright 5 inch fold out 1080 HD touch screen for on-set monitoring and to change camera settings, professional connectors such as 12G-SDI, a high quality stereo microphones and a side grip with control buttons mounted on a standard rosette. The optional Blackmagic viewfinder and shoulder mount kit allow you to go from tripod to over the shoulder shooting in seconds, so you can keep up with the action!
Advanced URSA Mini Software
URSA Mini features a new user interface that revolutionizes the way you work! You get powerful and super fast software with a unique heads up display that puts commonly used functions at your fingertips. Simply touch an on screen icon to make changes for things such as audio levels, white balance, shutter angle and more! You’ll instantly see sliders and controls for making adjustments without ever having to navigate through any menus! The new digital “slate” makes entering metadata faster than ever before with a built in dictionary, predictive entry and on screen keyboard. Using a professional digital film camera has never been faster!
Blackmagic URSA Mini is completely customizable so you can create a rig that’s built specifically for your production! You can add accessories like the Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder and Blackmagic URSA Mini Shoulder Kit, or choose from hundreds of third party accessories. URSA Mini has 9 standard ¼” threaded mounting points on the top and bottom of the camera so you can mount it directly to a tripod as well as add accessories such as rails, 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
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 a 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
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
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 color corrected for a truly cinematic look. For faster 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
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!
High Resolution Viewfinder
The optional Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder has been designed to be the perfect match for URSA and URSA Mini digital film cameras. The Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder has the specifications demanded by high end cinematographers. 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. To preserve OLED screen life there’s a built in sensor so the OLED only turns on when you’re looking through the viewfinder. The Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder is adjustable so it can be used on both the left or the right eye. There’s even a built in record light!
Blackmagic URSA Mini B4 Mount
If you already have an investment in incredible high definition B4 lenses, now you can use them with URSA Mini PL by adding the optional B4 lens mount. Unlike lens adapters, you can actually replace the lens mount itself to get a B4 mount with precision optics and spherical aberration correction specifically designed to match URSA Mini’s sensor! The B4 mount turns your URSA Mini into an incredibly compact HD camera with better dynamic range and support for more modern file formats than any other broadcast camera! The built in lens control connection provides power, start/stop recording and lens control for the lens. With the Blackmagic URSA Mini B4 Mount you can easily move between B4 and PL lenses any time you need.
The high resolution 5 inch fold out monitor includes a touchscreen so you get easy access to the revolutionary URSA camera interface. All of your settings, controls and monitoring tools are at your fingertips. That means you don’t have to hunt through confusing menus to make changes. You can see and change all camera settings, view timecode, histograms for checking levels, audio levels and a focus peaking indicator for checking focus!
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 in and reference input. On the front right side of the camera the 4 pin XLR DC and HD-SDI monitoring output are located in the perfect position for connecting to an optional viewfinder or on set monitor. The 12G-SDI output handles up to 2160p60 using a single BNC cable and also switches to 6G-SDI or HD-SDI depending on the shooting format.
12G-SDI is an incredible 8 times faster than regular HD-SDI which makes it fast enough for Ultra HD video at up to 60 frames per second, all over a single regular SDI cable! The high quality BNC connections are multi rate so it can automatically switch and work with 6G-SDI, 3G-SDI, and regular HD-SDI equipment. That means URSA Mini is compatible with all of your existing HD and Ultra HD equipment so you can plug it into things like ATEM live production switchers, on-set monitors, decks and more!
URSA Mini has the highest quality built in microphones and professional audio recording built in so you don’t have to carry around extra sound equipment. Use the built in stereo microphone to record natural location sound or connect professional microphones using the two XLR wide dynamic range mic inputs. The XLR connections have 48V of switchable phantom power so you can plug in everything from shot gun to wireless clip on mics for capturing every detail of the performance. You can quickly adjust levels using the physical knobs and monitor audio using the onscreen audio meters.
The built in touchscreen makes it astonishingly simple to set up and enter metadata for tagging clips. Metadata is saved directly in the video files so you don’t have to worry about managing extra sidecar files. You can import the files directly into software like DaVinci Resolve, Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer then use the metadata to sort, search and find the clips you need so you can spend more time on creative editing and less time managing mountains of media!
URSA Mini includes a 4-pin XLR industry standard power connector that works with 12V to 30V external power supplies. That means it’s easy to use the camera with all of your existing power supplies and batteries! URSA Mini uses the same battery power connector and mounting points on the rear of the camera as used on URSA so you can use the same range of battery plates from a wide range of manufacturers such as IDX, Frezzi, Anton Bauer and more. You can also add the optional Blackmagic URSA VLock Battery Plate for using popular V-Mount batteries.
Includes DaVinci Resolve
URSA Mini includes the full version of DaVinci Resolve Studio for Mac and Windows for editing, color grading, media management, mastering and delivery. DaVinci Resolve can easily handle the 12‑bit log RAW images from URSA Mini so you can take advantage of URSA Mini’s amazing image quality and wide dynamic range. DaVinci Resolve features advanced, multi layer timeline editing with powerful trimming tools, along with the industry’s leading suite of creative grading tools!

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.
URSA Mini has been designed from the ground up to be comfortable enough to use all day and small enough to be taken anywhere! The body is lightweight and perfectly balanced making it easy to use for handheld shots. The optional shoulder mount kit is ergonomically designed to help support the camera, making it a natural extension of your body. There’s even a quick release mount that lets you go from handheld to shoulder to tripod in seconds!
5“ Foldout Monitor
The super bright full HD resolution 5 inch fold out screen gives you a built in on set monitor so you don’t have to carry around extra equipment!

The screen has an extra wide viewing angle and displays crystal clear images so that you can accurately check exposure, focus and framing. Instantly play back clips, even high frame rate slo-mo shots, to make sure you get the perfect take then, when you’re ready to move to a new location, fold it up and go!
