Blackmagic URSA Mini 4K EF

The world’s lightest handheld Super 35 digital film camera!

URSA Mini comes in four models so you can choose from two different sensors and two different lens mounts. You can choose the 4.6K sensor with 15 stops of dynamic range in EF or PL lens mount models. If you’re on a tight budget, you can choose the more affordable 4K sensor with 12 stops of dynamic range with either EF or PL lens mount models. The PL mount works with professional cinema lenses and the EF models let you choose from an incredible selection of high quality photographic lenses from manufacturers like Zeiss, Canon, Sigma and more. Because EF lenses are used on high resolution DSLR cameras they have incredibly precise optics that can handle the high resolution of the URSA Mini 4.6K sensor.

Compact and lightweight digital film camera with EF lens mount and 4K Super 35 sensor, 12G-SDI output, 5” fold out monitor, dual CFast recorders and more!
