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.
  • Tripod-Friendly Setup. When purchased new, the URSA comes with no support options. To get you started, we include a Sony VCT-14 QR tripod adapter and (2) 12" Wooden Camera 15mm Rods. If you need shorter rods, we rent them in pairs of 3in / 6in / 9in.

WARNING:

We cannot recommend this product for professional work. We reached this decision after repeated failures in the field, experienced both first-hand by LR-folks and second-hand via rental clients. Though it might work much of the time, it is our opinion that this product’s performance is too unpredictable to be trusted on high-value projects. Use for casual testing or try-before-you-buy purposes only. If you have any questions, please contact us. support@lensrentals.com | 901-754-9100
