Blackmagic Design URSA Mini Pro 12K (PL)
Step your cine-style video recording up to 12K with the Blackmagic Design URSA Mini Pro 12K (PL). This pro video camera uses a 12,288 x 6480 12K Super35 sensor, a new color science, and up to 14 stops of dynamic range to produce extraordinarily detailed images. The URSA Mini Pro 12K records up to 80MP per frame in Blackmagic Raw and offers flexible recording options that include dual CFAST card capture and high-speed USB Type-C output. Recording rates include up to 12K60, 110 fps in 8K, and up to 220 fps in 4K Super16.
The front of the URSA Mini Pro 12K sports an interchangeable PL lens mount, enabling you to choose from an array of current and vintage pro cine lenses from multiple manufacturers. Canon EF and Nikon F mounts are available separately for shooters who have their own glass.
The new Super35 sensor at the heart of the URSA Mini Pro 12K has been optimized for capturing multiple resolutions and features equal amounts of red, green, and blue pixels. Shoot at 12K for smooth oversampling or use the URSA Mini Pro 4K’s in-sensor scaling to capture 8K or 4K Raw at rates up to 110 fps without cropping or a change in your field of view. The massive 12K sensor can also be used to select shots in 8K or 4K, essentially providing a multicamera look by reframing from a single camera output.
The dual CFast or UHS-II SD card option splits the recording between two cards, enabling you to capture up to 12K or 8K raw even at higher frame rates. With Blackmagic Raw, the URSA Mini Pro 12K offers constant-quality compression rates, several constant bit-rate options for predictable file sizes. Blackmagic Raw provides outstanding resolution for compositing, keying, tracking, and more. Blackmagic Raw is also optimized to work with the URSA Mini Pro 12K’s raw files, saving the need to also create proxies.
Blackmagic’s new Generation 5 Color Science offers a new film curve, enabling the URSA Mini Pro 12K to capture more natural skin tones and a better rendering of richly saturated colors in high-contrast scenes.
Even with 12K providing almost 10 times the resolution of UHD 4K, this versatile pro cine camera offers a trio of recording options. Record to the integrated dual CFast or UHS-II SD card recorders, or use the SuperSpeed USB Type-C expansion port for recording to fast SATA and NVMe drives.
An evenly weighted, lightweight yet robust magnesium alloy design makes the URSA Mini Pro 12K perfect for either handheld work or tripod-based shots. Additional camera features include 12G-SDI input and output, a 4″ fold-out display, built-in ND filters, ergonomic controls, timecode and reference input, and 48V phantom power XLR audio. A digital slate function and lens metadata capture ease your URSA Mini Pro 12K workflow transition from capture to post.
