Get the URSA camera with the EF lens mount and amazing 4K Super 35 image
sensor with global shutter installed. The EF lens mount includes active lens
control for compatibility with both active and passive EF mount lenses. URSA EF
makes it easy to use a wide range of high quality lenses such as low cost DSLR
photo lenses from companies such as Canon, Zeiss 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
