  • Generation 2 Ursa Mini Pro just in....

    Today we released Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2, a next generation digital film camera that features fully redesigned electronics and a new Super 35mm 4.6K HDR image sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range for shooting at up to 300 frames per second!

    Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 features a whole new design that lets you shoot crystal clear slow motion footage! You can record full sensor 4.6K images up to 120 frames per second, windowed DCI 4K at up to 150 frames per second, and regular windowed 1080 HD at an amazing 300 frames per second. That makes Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 ideal for capturing stylized fast action documentary work and nature photography!

    Images are stored using the new Blackmagic RAW format with the latest Blackmagic Design Generation 4 Color Science for incredibly accurate skin tones and stunning color. Blackmagic RAW is a revolutionary, next generation codec that gives you visually lossless images, extensive metadata support and highly optimized GPU and CPU accelerated processing. That means you get the quality and workflow advantages of RAW formats with the speed and ease of use of a video codec. With Blackmagic RAW, you can choose compression levels up to an astounding 12:1 and still get stunning images that can be used for feature films, documentaries and broadcast programming!

    Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 features dual CFast card recorders and dual SD card recorders. It even has an innovative USB-C expansion port so you can record directly onto external drives! You also get built in ND filters, an interchangeable EF lens mount that can be swapped for optional PL, B4 and F mounts, a massive number of external controls, a high visibility backlit status display, foldout 4 touchscreen monitor, professional audio recording and more!

    Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 combines 4.6K image quality with the features and controls of a traditional broadcast camera, making it perfect for high end feature films, episodic television, indie films, music videos, broadcast news, sports, and even corporate or wedding videos. Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 gives you better quality images than cameras that cost tens of thousands more!

      Is there also a loyalty upgrade program for the users who bought an ursa mini pro?

          What I'm curious about is apart from frame rates and some other audio circuitry updates - is there anything to the picture/colour?

          They mentioned better sensor uniformity and colour but that was literally all that was said. If anybody knows or has more info that would be great.

            Great Generation 2 camera...and for the same price as the current model. I just hope the current model is still supported with firmware updates. I'd like to see pixel remapping on it. The biggest improvement with this cam is the higher frame rates and better audio. Not enough for me to upgrade as i'm not really in need of higher frame rates though it would be a nice thing to have. But if I was getting a cam now...this def would be the one to get...no brainer.

            As long as they continue to support the current UMP with colour science updates and other little things Im good.

              Grant Petty said there is licensing problems now with CineDNG. Would that mean BMD will get fine for selling the UM4.6k that still uses CineDNG unless there is plans to bring BRaw to these cameras to replace CiineDNG? If not then a loyalty upgrade should be offered.

                While they could probably be matched, the press release does mention that it is "a new Super 35mm 4.6K image sensor".

                    This is great news for you, congrats! I was thinking of picking one up in the near future. This just makes it even more enticing.

                        So for those that insist that uncompressed cdng is the only way to go will be hanging on to their old cameras then.

                          Black magic rule of thumb: wait until at least the 2nd or 3rd generation of the camera before you purchase otherwise the "flagship" camera you bought will stop bieng supported in a few months. Incredibly annoying

                            An upgrade option would be a nice gesture from Blackmagic. Something like a few thousand to send in your UMP to get the upgraded hardware. An UMP has been on my short list for some time and I'd be pretty mad if I bought one for the same price as a Gen 2 right before this came out.

                              Yup was hoping for lowlight improvement. Not seeing anything in the specs as dual ISO. Hoping lowlight is better.
