Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K
Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K, a third generation model, supports the
new Blackmagic Generation 5 Colour Science and higher Blackmagic RAW
performance, all in the award winning URSA Mini Pro camera body...

B

lackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K is
a revolution in digital film with a
12,288 x 6480 12K Super 35 sensor and
14 stops of dynamic range, built into
the award winning URSA Mini body.
The combination of 80 megapixels
per frame, new colour science and the
flexibility of Blackmagic RAW makes
working with 12K a reality.
Oversampling from 12K gives
customers the best 8K and 4K
images with the subtle skin tones
and extraordinary detail of high end
still cameras. Customers can shoot
at 60fps in 12K, 110fps in 8K and up
to 220fps in 4K Super 16. URSA Mini
Pro 12K features an interchangeable
PL mount, as well as built in ND
filters, dual CFast and UHS-II SD
card recorders, a SuperSpeed USB-C
expansion port and more.
URSA Mini Pro 12K's resolution goes
well beyond traditional motion picture
film. Customers get the benefits of
shooting with film including incredible
detail, wide dynamic range and rich,
deep colour. Perfect for feature films,
episodic television and immersive,
large format IMAX. The incredible
definition around objects makes it
ideal for working with green screen
and VFX including compositing live
action and CGI.
Native 12K Sensor
The Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K
features a revolutionary new sensor
with a native resolution of 12,288
x 6480, which is an incredible 80
megapixels per frame. The Super
35 sensor has a superb 14 stops of
dynamic range and a native ISO of
800. The new 12K sensor has equal
amounts of red, green and blue
pixels and is optimised for images at
multiple resolutions. Customers can
shoot 12K at 60fps or use in-sensor
scaling to allow 8K or 4K RAW at up to
110fps without cropping or changing
their field of view. URSA Mini Pro's
interchangeable lens mount lets
customers choose from the widest
range of vintage and modern cinema
lenses.
The URSA Mini Pro 12K sensor and
Blackmagic RAW were designed
together to make 12-bit RAW
workflows in 12K effortless. As an

incredibly efficient next generation
codec Blackmagic RAW lets customers
shoot 12K and edit on a laptop, a
capability that simply isn't possible
with other codecs.
"With Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K
we have advanced imaging technology
into a new generation where new
styles of shooting will be possible,"
said Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic
Design. "Its not just the 12K sensor,
but there is so many other innovations
in this camera. From the Generation 5
colour Science, the in sensor scaling,
new symmetrical colour pattern, full
RGB quality and of course the 12K
resolution, it's going to be exciting to
see what DOPs do creatively with this
technology!"
Blackmagic RAW makes cinema
quality 12-bit, 80 megapixel images
at up to 60 frames a reality. Constant
quality Q0 and Q5 options and new Q1
and Q3 lock the quality level, allowing
compression to adapt, matching the
detail of the scene. Constant bitrate
encoding options 5:1, 8:1, 12:1 and
the new 18:1 are designed to give
customers the best possible images
with predictable and consistent file
size. Customers can record RAW to two
cards simultaneously so customers
can shoot 12K or 8K to either CFast
or UHS-II cards, even at high frame
rates. Blackmagic RAW stores camera
metadata, lens data, white balance,
digital slate information and custom
LUTs.
Shooting RAW in 12K preserves the
deepest control of detail, exposure
and colour during post. Oversampling
means customers get extremely
sharp 8K without harsh edges. Best

Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K

of all, Blackmagic RAW is designed to
accelerate 12K for post-production,
making it as easy to work with as
standard HD or Ultra HD files. It is
highly optimised, multi-threaded,
works across multiple CPU cores and
is also GPU accelerated to work with
Apple Metal, CUDA and OpenCL.
Generation 5 Colour Science
Blackmagic Generation 5 Colour
Science features a new film curve
designed to make full use of the
massive amount of colour data from
the new URSA Mini Pro 12K sensor.
This delivers even better colour
response for more pleasing skin
tones, and better rendering of highly
saturated colours such as neon signs
and car tail lights in high contrast
scenes.
Generation
5
colour
Science
informs complex Blackmagic RAW
image processing, with colour and
dynamic range data from the sensor
preserved via metadata for use in

post-production. Compatible with
all previously shot Blackmagic RAW
files, Generation 5 colour Science lets
customers take advantage of the new
film curve even with their existing
work.
Customers can shoot up to 60fps
in 12K 12,288 x 6480 17:9. For higher
frame rates, customers can shoot
110fps at 8192 x 4320, 140fps at 8192
x 3408 and even window the sensor
to Super 16 to capture 4K at 220fps at
4096 x 2160 DCI.
URSA Mini Pro 12K offers three
options for recording 12K, which
contains almost 10 times the
resolution of Ultra HD. Customers get
dual built in CFast and UHS-II SD card
recorders, and a SuperSpeed USB-C
expansion port for recording to fast
SATA and NVMe drives.
URSA Mini Pro includes a full version
of DaVinci Resolve Studio.
Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K will be
available in July 2020 from Blackmagic
Design resellers worldwide.
