Frame rates go up to 60 fps (150 fps in 1080p with new 2015 firmware update). An EF mount is on this camera so you can use all compatible Canon EF lenses an adapt lenses from your other favorite systems as well! This is an all-around workhorse camera for cinematic productions.
Rethinking Camera Desig
All your on-set equipment built into one 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!
User Upgradeable Sensor and Mount
Choose from a range of sensors and lens mounts!
Blackmagic URSA features a modular camera turret that can be simply removed by removing 4 simple bolts! The camera turret includes the sensor, lens mount and lens control connections and can be upgraded in the future when new types of sensors are developed. This means your next camera will be a fraction of the cost of buying a whole new camera because you can upgrade it!
URSA 4K EF includes an affordable high quality 4K image sensor with global shutter, up to 12 stops of dynamic range and an EF lens mount with active lens control. Now you can use low cost DSLR photo lenses from companies such as Canon, Zeiss and more!
Built in On Set Monitoring!
Massive Viewfinder as a fold out 10 inch screen!
Say goodbye to bulky on set monitors because you get a massive fold out 10 inch screen built into Blackmagic URSA, making it the world’s biggest viewfinder! The screen is super bright so it’s easy to see when shooting outdoors, even in direct sunlight, plus it features an ultra-wide viewing angle so you can pan and tilt to extremes and still see crystal clear images. When shooting in Ultra HD, focus becomes extremely difficult on small viewfinders, however with a massive 10 inch screen in full HD, you can see your images in amazing detail for perfect focus, framing and exposure! Because the screen tilts you can shoot down low, or high up over crowds and easily tilt the screen up or down to see your shot!
Two Extra 5” Touch Screens
Get full control on both sides of the camera!
URSA features the world’s most intuitive and advanced touch screen camera user interface! 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!
