sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range and the film industry PL lens
mount installed. URSA PL is ideal when you need to use feature film
industry PL mount lenses for the most cinematic optics available.

everything built in, including a massive 10 inch fold out on set
monitor, a new user upgradeable 4.6K Super 35 image sensor with a
massive 15 stops of dynamic range, 12G-SDI, internal dual RAW and ProRes

DOPs to get perfect results every time. The dedicated screen for camera
assistants lets them check and update camera parameters independently

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

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.
