Blackmagic Just Set A New Cinematic Standard With The URSA Mini Pro 12K

For years, the camera industry has been focused on the optimization and implementation of 8K video platforms. As the next step in a logical progression from the now-conventional 4K resolution, the market’s most idealistic manufacturers have placed an emphasis on the production of true 8K models. However, Blackmagic Design has something else in mind: a next-gen 12K camera system housed within the body of its award-winning URSA Mini Pro.

The Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K video camera is certainly an astounding feat, as far as technology is concerned. Inside, buyers will find a massive 12,288 x 6,480 12K Super 35 image sensor, which produces 80-megapixel still frames, provides 14 stops of dynamic range, and capitalizes on the company’s Generation 5 Color Science. Not only has the outfit surpassed the expectations of the camera world’s next-generation models, but it’s also done so in an overtly efficient manner, offering shooters the post-production-focused flexibility of Blackmagic RAW, 12K oversampling, and frame rates of up to 220 fps (in 4K Super 16), while still boasting an affordable price point under $10,000. They’ve also included a handful of professional features — like an interchangeable PL mount, built-in ND filters, and dual CFast/UHS-II SD card recorders — to make the URSA Mini Pro 12K as versatile as possible. We’ve only scratched the surface, so head over to Blackmagic’s website to learn more prior to the camera’s July 2020 release.
