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 optimized for images at multiple resolutions. You can shoot 12K at 60 fps or use in-sensor scaling to allow 8K or 4K RAW at up to 110 fps without cropping or changing your field of view. URSA Mini Pro’s interchangeable lens mount lets you choose from the widest range of vintage and modern cinema lenses, so you can capture every ounce of character and detail from your favourite optics.
Shoot in 12K, Edit on a Laptop
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 you shoot 12K and edit on a laptop, a capability that simply isn’t possible with other codecs. The massive resolution of the sensor means you can reframe shots in post for delivery in 8K and 4K. It’s like a multi-camera shoot with only one camera. And it’s perfect for great looking vertical and square video, too. The advanced design of the sensor and Blackmagic RAW means that you can work in any resolution in post-production instantly, without rendering, while retaining the full sensor’s colour accuracy.
BlackmagicRAW Fueled Image Capture
Only Blackmagic RAW makes cinema-quality 12âbit, 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 you the best possible images with predictable and consistent file size. You can record RAW to two cards simultaneously so you can shoot 12K or 8K to either CFast or UHSâII cards, even at high frame rates! Blackmagic RAW stores camera metadata, lens data, white balance, digital slate information and custom LUTs to ensure consistency of image on set and through post-production.
Optimized for Fast Flexible Post Production
Shooting RAW in 12K preserves the deepest control of detail, exposure and colour during post. Oversampling means you get extremely sharp 8K without harsh edges. Best 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 optimized, multiâthreaded works across multiple CPU cores and is also GPU accelerated to work with Apple Metal, CUDA and OpenCL. So you can always work with your camera RAW files without having to make proxies. Blackmagic RAW 12K images provide unprecedented resolution and quality for colour, keying, compositing, reframing, stabilization and tracking in 4K or 8K.
Generation 5 Color Science
Blackmagic Generation 5 Color 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 a better rendering of highly saturated colours such as neon signs and car tail lights in high contrast scenes. Generation 5 Color 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 Color Science lets you take advantage of the new film curve even with your existing work!
Full Resolution at Higher Frame Rates
URSA Mini Pro 12K is multiple cameras in one, shooting standard resolutions and frame rates in 4K, 8K and even insanely detailed 12K! With a massive 80 megapixels per frame at 60 fps in RAW, you can capture perfect stills and motion shots in a single camera at the same time! You can shoot up to 60 fps in 12K 12,288 x 6480 17:9! For higher frame rates, you can shoot 110 fps at 8192 x 4320, 140 fps at 8192 x 3408 and even window the sensor to Super 16 to capture 4K at an incredible 220 fps at 4096 x 2160 DCI! URSA Mini Pro 12K has flexible frame rate and resolution options and captures with improved motion rendering which means that you get smoother edges in 8K and 4K even at lower frame rates.
High Band Width Recording
URSA Mini Pro is the ultimate high bandwidth recorder with 3 options for recording 12K, which contains almost 10 times the resolution of Ultra HD. You get dual built-in CFast and UHSâII SD card recorders, and a SuperSpeed USBâC expansion port for recording to fast SATA and NVMe drives.

Built-in Precision ND Filters
URSA Mini Pro features high-quality ND filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. Designed to match the colourimetry and colour science of the camera, the 2, 4 and 6 stop filters provide you with additional latitude even under harsh lighting. The IR filters have been designed to filter both optical wavelengths and IR wavelengths evenly to eliminate IR contamination of the images from which many ND filters can suffer. URSA Mini Pro ND filters are true optical filters with a precision mechanism that quickly moves them into place when the ND filter dial is turned. Filter settings can even be displayed as either an ND number, stop reduction or fraction on the LCD!
