Product Description

Details

The Blackmagic Design URSA PL 4.6K builds on the URSA legacy with a whopping new sensor that offers 15 stops of dynamic range, and its modular design mans that you can always upgrade to the latest sensor technology. The PL mount allows you to mount your existing cinema lenses, or rent some of the finest lenses ever made!

The Blackmagic Design Ursa follows in the Blackmagic tradition of elegant design, exception performance and affordability. Touted as the world’s first high end ‘digital film camera’ the Blackmagic URSA has been designed to meet the on-set needs of cinematographers from the ground up. It’s available in two models – the EF mount and the PL mount to integrate with your existing lens set and give you options for the very best lenses available on the market to rent or buy. Built into the URSA's body is a massive 10 inch fold out production monitor making the need for third party monitoring a thing of the past. It also features a Super-35 4.6k sensor with global shutter and recording is the broadcast standard Apple ProRes as well as RAW technology.

Whether you are producing feature films, commercials, documentaries, television programs and more, the Blackmagic URSA can be easily dressed 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 has a picture quality that rivals the industry standard production cameras, and offers 15 stops of dynamic range!

URSA is a true professional digital film camera with a 4K sensor, global shutter and an incredible 15 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.

The Blackmagic Design URSA also ships with the industry standard in colour correction software, DaVinci Resolve
