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, large user upgradeable Super 35 global shutter 4K image sensor, 12G-SDI and internal dual RAW and ProRes recorders. Because the sensor and lens mount assembly can be changed, you can choose EF or PL lens mounts, or even a broadcast video sensor with B4 mount. This means 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 films, 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 DOP’s 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 feature film dynamic range

URSA is a true professional digital film camera with a 4K sensor, global shutter and an incredible 12 stops of dynamic range. The wide dynamic range blows away 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 Ultra HD 12 bit lossless Cinema DNG RAW means you get incredible quality! You can also shoot Ultra HD or HD in Apple ProRes™ for easy post production workflow with 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!

User Upgradeable Sensor and Mount

Choose from a range of sensors and lens mounts!

The Blackmagic URSA features a modular camera turret that can be simply removed by removing 4 simple bolts! The camera turret includes the sensor, lens mount and lens control connections and can be upgraded in the future when new types of sensors are developed. This means your next camera will be a fraction of the cost of buying a whole new camera! There are currently 4 models to choose from!

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.

URSA has been designed to solve the problem of moving large amounts of equipment between locations when shooting. You get a full size professional production camera with all the accessories such as a large 10 inch on set monitor, two built in recorders, professional audio recording, built in microphones, scopes, dual status screens and more! Because so many accessories are built into URSA, it’s been designed to be fully upgradable so you can remove and upgrade the sensor and lens mount in the future! This upgradable design means we have invested more into URSA’s design because you don’t need to throw it away when you buy your next camera!

Revolutionary Design

Rugged, lightweight and future proof!

URSA features a super strong aluminum alloy design so you get a durable camera that’s ready for shooting in all conditions. The built in liquid cooling system keeps internal components cool, even when running sustained high frame rates, and thermal energy is piped into a large internal heat exchanger in the rear of the camera that allows conversion cooling with little fan use required. URSA is also loaded with lots of extra processing power plus advanced SATA 3 based CFast recorders that are faster than currently available cards, so you get a future proof camera with power to handle new emerging formats and sensor upgrades when they become available!

Upgradable Sensor and Lens Mount

World’s first user field upgradable camera!

URSA’s revolutionary camera turret is a lens mount and imaging sensor built together, into a single replaceable module that attaches to the camera with 4 simple bolts! Having a replaceable turret on a professional production camera means that you can choose to upgrade your camera as different sensor and lens mount options become available. Changing sensors is as simple as removing the bolts and unplugging the assembly, so for the first time you can upgrade your own camera when it suits you because you can do it yourself! That means your investment in the camera body is protected and you get a completely new camera with the latest sensor technology just by replacing the turret!

Large 10” Viewfinder

Extremely bright fold out monitor with super wide viewing angle

Now you’ll always have a massive on set monitor with you at all times because URSA includes an incredibly bright and wide viewing angle 10” monitor. Now you can totally eliminate the need to carry around extra monitoring when shooting! The built in monitor simply folds out and pivots up and down making shooting down low, or high above crowds super easy. The large screen is full HD resolution for crystal clear images, ensuring your exposure settings are perfect and your focus is super sharp. The large monitor makes framing shots easy and you can also use the large monitor to playback shots to your entire crew. When you’re ready to move to a new location, simply fold in the monitor and go!

Advanced Touch Screen Interface

Dual screens for complete control

Blackmagic URSA features the world’s most advanced camera interface! You get camera settings, control, technical monitoring and more on screens built into each side of the camera. The left screen allows the DOP to see camera settings, scopes and status with full touch screen control. The status display on this screen includes information such as large timecode display, format, frame rate information as well as the histogram scopes for exposure, spectrum scope for focus and audio level over time to show audio clipping. For the camera assistant, there is a second similar LCD on the other side of the camera with all these features that works completely independently of the screen for the DOP!

External Mounting Points

Attach all kinds of third party accessories!

When you’re operating as part of a large crew, or flying solo, connecting extra items such as external microphones, fiber converters for live production or large lenses is critical. URSA includes the standard 3/8” threaded points positioned over the top of the camera to make it easy to add extra items as you need to. Underneath the camera are lock plates for using quick lock tripod mounts, so you can snap URSA into a tripod mount and remove in less than a second. That’s perfect when shooting on the go. On the rear of the camera are multiple screw mount points for adding V-Lock or Anton Bauer battery mount plates. For large lens and matte box use, production rail mounts are included in the tripod mount point under the camera, and all compatible third party rails are supported!
