Introducing Blackmagic URSA, the world’s first high end digital film camera designed to revolutionize workflow on set. Built to handle the ergonomics of large film crews as well as single person use, URSA has everything built in, including a massive 10 inch fold out on set monitor, a new user upgradeable 4.6K Super 35 image sensor with a massive 15 stops of dynamic range, 12G-SDI, internal dual RAW and ProRes recorders and more. Because the sensor and lens mount assembly can be changed, you can upgrade to the latest sensor technology in the future and keep your investment in the camera body.

Professional Digital Film Camera
Designed for feature film, television commercials and more.

Blackmagic URSA is designed to be used on high end feature films, commercials, episodic television production, documentaries, electronic news gathering, music videos and more. When used on jobs with a large crew you can easily dress the camera with high quality cinema lenses, rails, follow focus, matte boxes and more. With built in scopes for exposure, focus and audio levels, it’s easy for DOPs to get perfect results every time. The dedicated screen for camera assistants lets them check and update camera parameters independently of the DOP. If you’re shooting solo then the large fold out on set monitor, built in scopes and internal recorder means you don’t need any extra on set equipment because it’s all built into the camera. That’s a whole film set of equipment built into the one extremely portable design.

Rethinking Camera Design
All your on set equipment built into one portable design.

The Blackmagic URSA features a larger professional size that has the space for powerful cooling that allows higher frame rates while keeping the chassis cool and the fan super quiet. The machined aluminum design is incredibly strong and has been designed for large film crew use and to be field upgradable to new sensors by the user. Each area of the camera has been divided into separate DOP, camera assistant and audio engineer work stations. The DOP station features a large 10 inch fold out on set monitor and separate 5 inch screen for settings, camera status and scopes. The camera assist station features a separate screen for camera settings, status and scopes and an audio station features audio meters, controls and audio connections. The big screen means you don’t need extra on set equipment so it’s easy to move around quickly between shots. Simply fold in the monitor and go.

Shoot in incredible quality Ultra HD
Super 35 size sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range

URSA now includes a new professional digital film 4.6K image sensor that captures a spectacular 4608 x 2592 pixels with 15 stops of dynamic range! That’s larger than DCI 4K! The sensor features an incredible 15 stops of dynamic range for true digital film imaging. The wide dynamic range is dramatically better than regular video cameras or even high end broadcast cameras, so you get dramatically better images that look like true digital film. The wide dynamic range preserves detail in dark shadows as well as bright highlights so you have a wider range of brightness levels to work with when color grading in post production. The extra large Super 35 size allows for creative shallow depth of field shooting and the high resolution 12-bit lossless CinemaDNG RAW recording means you get incredible quality! You can also record HD or Ultra HD using ProRes for easy post production workflow with broadcast quality images and minimum storage requirements.

Dual Recorders for Non Stop Recording
Keep recording forever so you never miss a critical event.

Blackmagic URSA features dual recorders so you never need to stop recording to change media. That’s critical if you are shooting an historical event, important interview or where you just cannot stop shooting! Simply load an empty CFast card into the second recorder and when the current card is full, the recording will continue onto the second card, allowing you to change out the full card and keep shooting! The built in recorders use new CFast card technology that allow recording up to 350 MB/s for incredible speeds, perfect for high frame rate RAW recording! Imagine shooting RAW and then playing back for the crew on the massive 10 inch screen.

Built in On Set Monitoring
Massive Viewfinder as a fold out 10 inch screen.

Say goodbye to bulky on set monitors because you get a massive fold out 10 inch screen built into Blackmagic URSA, making it the world’s biggest viewfinder! The screen is super bright so it’s easy to see when shooting outdoors, even in direct sunlight, plus it features an ultra wide viewing angle so you can pan and tilt to extremes and still see crystal clear images. When shooting in Ultra HD, focus becomes extremely difficult on small viewfinders, however with a massive 10 inch screen in full HD, you can see your images in amazing detail for perfect focus, framing and exposure! Because the screen tilts you can shoot down low, or high up over crowds and easily tilt the screen up or down to see your shot.

Two Extra 5” Touch Screens
Get full control on both sides of the camera.

URSA features the world’s most intuitive and advanced touch screen camera user interface! There are two 5” touch screens on both sides of the camera that put your settings, controls and monitoring tools at your fingertips.

The left side gives you quick access to all major settings via a touch screen and a row of control buttons, that means you don’t have to hunt through complicated menus to make changes.

The right side displays settings like format, frame rate, shutter angle and more! There is a large prominent timecode display, an animated histogram for checking levels, a scrolling audio waveform monitor with clipping indicators and a spectrum scope for helping you check and adjust focus.

Broadcast Connections
Standard connections eliminates custom cables

The Blackmagic URSA features standard broadcast connections so you don’t need to worry about buying expensive custom cables! You get 12G-SDI output that can be down converted to HD or used directly at amazing Ultra HD quality. There’s also a 12G-SDI input that can display return video on the 10 inch monitor when working on live events or an external video source! A separate SDI output is available for attaching external viewfinders and eye pieces. For audio, there are 2 professional XLR connections with 48v phantom power so you can use the audio industry’s best quality microphones. You also get timecode in/out and a LANC connector for controlling the camera, lenses, and accessories remotely.

Broadcast Standard Power
Compatible with industry standard power supplies

URSA uses a standard 4-pin 12V to 30V XLR broadcast power connector for plugging into external power supplies. There are also mounting points and a power transfer connector for mounting third party V-Mount and Anton/Bauer gold mount back plates and batteries onto the rear of the camera itself. This means you can integrate the battery as part of the camera itself. You also get a standard 4 pin XLR 12V output power connector so you can use a wide range of third party viewfinders without needing expensive custom cables. That means it’s easy to integrate the camera with all of your existing gear and accessories.

Designed to be Rigged
Customize your rig to suit your production.

To make it super easy to bolt on your favorite accessories, Blackmagic URSA has multiple mount points all over the camera. You get standard tripod quick release attach points on the bottom of the camera, so you can use industry standard tripod mounts. The viewfinder connection uses standard power and BNC SDI connections for any type of viewfinder, plus there is standard 3/8” threaded points on the top and handle of the camera for mounting anything you like! Standard battery mounts can be bolted to the rear of the camera and you can use standard rails in the rail mounts built into the camera base. No camera is so easy to rig up for any type of production.

Includes DaVinci Resolve Software
The industry standard in color correction and professional editing included free.

Blackmagic URSA includes the full version of DaVinci Resolve software for Mac and Windows, so you get a professional editing and color correction system with your camera! For color correction of your wide dynamic range camera files, you get the full creative power of primaries, secondaries, power windows and much more! For editing you get DaVinci Resolve’s new advanced editing features including a full multi layer timeline with ripple, roll, slide and slip clip trimming, multi cam, title tools and more! You can even use Resolve Live to grade live pictures direct from the camera while on set. Imagine lighting your set and color grading all at the same time! Blackmagic URSA and DaVinci Resolve mean you get a complete production and post production solution.

High Resolution Viewfinder
Full HD display and glass optics makes precise focus easy

The optional Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder has been designed to be the perfect match for Blackmagic URSA 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.
