4.6K Super 35mm Sensor. This newly designed imaging sensor speaks for itself: 4,608 × 2,592 resolution, 15 stops of dynamic range, and 160 fps (HD). Need we say more?
Compact Handheld Design. While still maintaining the familiar URSA design, the Mini’s more compact size allows it to be used by smaller crews and fewer hands. The optional shoulder mount makes the URSA Mini even more versatile, allowing you to swap it from hand-held shooting to over-the-shoulder use to a tripod mount with ease. The magnesium-alloy build cuts the Mini’s weight to just five pounds.
Touchscreen Controls. Despite its reduced size, the URSAMini comes equipped with a 5-inch, 1,920 × 1,080 folding monitor. A touchscreen interface allows access to all menu functions, eliminating the hassle of menu-diving.
- The URSA Mini features multiple connections such as 12G-SDI out, HD-SDI monitoring out, two LANC inputs, balanced XLR audio with phantom power, timecode-in, and reference input. On the front right side of the camera, the 4-pin XLR DC and HD-SDI monitoring output are located in the perfect position for connecting to an optional viewfinder or on set monitor. The 12G-SDI output handles up to 2160p60 using a single BNC cable, and switches to 6G-SDI or HD-SDI depending on the shooting format.
- Quality Sound Recording
- With high-quality built-in microphones and professional audio recording features, you don’t have to carry around extra sound equipment. You can use the built-in stereo microphone to record natural location sound or connect professional microphones using the two XLR mic inputs. The XLR connections have 48V of switchable phantom power, so you can plug shotgun or wireless lavalier mics for capturing more detail. You can quickly adjust levels using the physical knobs, while monitoring the audio using the onscreen audio meters and headphones.
