Blackmagic Design URSA 4K Digital Cinema Camera (PL)

Available Today

Blackmagic Design’s URSA 4K Digital Cinema Camera (with PL Mount) gives filmmakers a well rounded 4K production option. Key features include:

  • 4K Recording. Stay on the right side of the technological divide with the URSA’s 4K image sensor. It’s capable of capturing UltraHD 4K footage in CinemaDNG RAW or Apple ProRes in UHD4K & 1080p, all with 12 stops of dynamic range.
  • Designed for Professionals. The URSA was designed with reverse engineering to meet the many needs of modern production workflows. It is equal parts ENG and Digital Cinema, but with a guerrilla-indie twist.
  • 3 Zone Operation. A 10.1" display for monitoring the video and two other 5" touch screens for leveling audio/adjusting settings make it easy for camera assistants/audio technicians to work simultaneously without bothering the cinematographer.

Important considerations:

  • No lens included.
  • This camera does not yet support Phantom Power for its XLR ports.
  • The dongle that enables the full version of DaVinci Resolve is not included. DaVinci Resolve Lite can be downloaded for free here. Be aware that Resolve Lite doesn’t allow working in projects larger than 1080p; therefore, even though you’ll be shooting in 4K it will take third party programs to maintain that resolution throughout the post production process.
  • Camera does not have a hotshoe mount, nor does it include any kind of hot shoe adapter. If you intend to use any shoe mountable accessories, you will need to provide your own adapter.
  • The URSA does not have the ability to format memory cards, nor does it offer a way to interface with a computer and serve as a card reader. If you do not own a CFast 2.0 reader, you will need to rent one.
  • This camera is big. It weighs almost 17lbs before adding lenses, batteries, and other accessories; be prepared for working with a large heavy rig.
