In the URSA family, you can choose from three different models and pick the one that suits you best: Ursa Mini 4.6K, Ursa Mini 4K, and URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2.

The URSA Broadcast Ursa Mini 4K will give you incredible image quality, accurate skin tones and vibrant colours that are far superior to more expensive cameras and incorporates familiar controls and broadcast camera features are ideal for ENG style shooting. The key is URSA Broadcast’s new extended video mode that produces pictures you don’t need to colour grade so you can shoot, edit and get stories on the air faster than ever before.

Records onto SD cards

It allows you to record onto inexpensive standard SD cards, UHS-II cards and CFast cards, and records 1080i or 2160p video into standard .mov files, with .mxf to be added in future updates. URSA Broadcast records using DNx145, DNx220X or ProRes so the files will work with your existing broadcast systems and workflows.

B4 Lens Mount

You also get a B4 lens mount that works with your existing lenses, or you can swap it for optional EF, F and PL lens mounts so you can use standard photographic lenses. It is customisable and allows you to build a complete broadcast camera chain – the optional URSA Viewfinder, URSA Studio Viewfinder, and SMPTE fiber converters.

2/3″ mount

The 2/3″ mount lets you use existing HD lenses or Ultra HD lenses. You also get full electronic B4 lens control so you can adjust the focus, iris, and zoom using the camera’s controls, or remotely from an ATEM switcher using the SDI camera control protocol.

4K image sensor

Featuring an incredible 4K image sensor and a new extended video mode with better dynamic range and colour fidelity, the image sensor is designed for both HD and Ultra HD so you get amazing texture and detail – all without the need for post-production.

True Optical Neutral Density (ND) filters

With high-quality True Optical Neutral Density (ND) filters you can quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. These 1/4, 1/16th and 1/64th stop filters have been specifically designed to match the image sensor and colour science of URSA Broadcast. This eliminates the IR contamination.

Built-in stereo microphone

The built-in stereo microphone can be used for recording or you can connect professional microphones using the two XLR mic inputs. The XLR connections have 48V of switchable phantom power so you can plug in everything from shotgun to wireless clip-on mics.

Advanced URSA Mini Software

All URSA Mini cameras feature a new user interface that revolutionises the way you work. The advanced camera operating software lets you use simple tap and swipe gestures to control all features, setup, the digital slate and more.

Includes DaVinci Resolve Studio

All URSA cameras include a full version of DaVinci Resolve Studio, which is a complete post-production solution. You get the world’s most advanced solution that combines professional editing, color correction, audio post, and visual effects all in one software tool! DaVinci Resolve is used to finish more Hollywood feature films than any other solution, so you’ll get the best possible post-production tools to edit native video from your camera and retain every bit of quality.
