Blackmagic Design Announces URSA Mini Pro 12K Cinema Camera

Forget 4K. Forget 8K. The latest addition to Blackmagic Design’s range of cinema cameras is the 12K-capable URSA Mini Pro! Boasting an 80-megapixel Super 35 sensor with a native resolution of 12,288 x 6480 pixels, the new camera offers 14 stops of dynamic range and a native ISO of 800, all packed into the compact URSA Mini body.

According to Blackmagic, the new sensor has “equal amounts of red, green and blue pixels and is optimized for images at multiple resolutions.” As such, as well as being able to shoot 12K at 60fps, the URSA Mini Pro 12K can capture 8K at 110fps, and up to 220fps in 4K Super 16. The camera comes with DaVinci Resolve Studio post-production software, which is capable of editing 12K footage. Blackmagic RAW, the company’s proprietary codec optimized for 12K workflows, makes this possible even with a laptop, according to Blackmagic Design.

The URSA Mini Pro 12K comes with a PL mount for compatibility with high-end cinema lenses, but this can be swapped out for either Canon EF or Nikon F mounts. Other features include a USB-C 3.1 Gen 2 expansion port for faster recording to external SSDs, and dual CFast card slots.

Available later this month, the URSA Mini Pro 12K has an MSRP of $9,995.
