Blackmagic Cinema Camera
 

Introducing the World’s Most Advanced Digital Film Camera!

Blackmagic URSA Cine is a revolutionary digital film camera that introduces new advanced digital film technology combined with total integration into the post production workflow. That means it's the first digital film camera with fast high capability storage built in, plus high speed networking for on set media sync. Blackmagic URSA Cine also introduces a new large format RGBW 36 x 24mm image sensor with larger photo-sites for incredible dynamic range. You can also swap between PL, LPL, EF and Hasselblad lens mounts. There's even WiFi with SRT streaming for remote client viewing. Plus the industry standard Lemo and Fischer connections make it perfect for high end cinema production.

 

Cinematic Large Format Sensor

URSA Cine features a revolutionary new sensor designed for incredible quality images at all resolutions from 4K to a massive 12K! The larger sensor builds on the technology of URSA Mini Pro 12K with larger photo-sites leading to an astounding 16 stops of dynamic range. The unique RGBW architecture provides equal amounts of red, green and blue pixels. This means it is optimized to deliver incredibly rich colors at all resolutions and provide the ultimate in image quality and flexibility. Now you can capture more detail with a wider dynamic range than ever before! Plus, in sensor scaling means you can record at all resolutions without cropping!

Cinematic Large Format Sensor
A Camera Body Optimized for Extreme Flexibility

A Camera Body Optimized for High End Productions!

URSA Cine is designed to meet the demands of any high end production. The evenly weighted camera body is built with a robust magnesium alloy chassis and lightweight carbon fiber polycarbonate composite skin to help you move quickly on set. Soft touch backlit buttons make controls easy to see in all conditions. There’s a 5″ fold out touchscreen for reviewing shots and accessing camera settings, plus a dedicated assist station on the other side of the camera, with 5″ LCD and full camera controls! Standard Lemo and Fischer connectors let you control the camera remotely while providing power for lens motors and other accessories. You also get 12G‑SDI out, 10G Ethernet, USB-C, XLR audio and more!

3:2 Open Gate 16:9    

Large Format Flexibility

The large format sensor in URSA Cine provides the ultimate in flexibility for aspect ratios, lenses and delivery formats! The full sensor area gives you a stunning 3:2 open gate image which lets you reframe your shots in post production. Or you can use the large sensor area to shoot anamorphic and deliver in a range of aspect ratios with 1.3, 1.5, 1.6, 1.66, 1.8 and 2x de-squeeze factors. Plus, you can shoot in 4K, 8K or 12K using the entire sensor without cropping, retaining the full field of view of your lenses. There are even 9K Super 35 4-perf, 3-perf and 2-perf modes for full compatibility with classic cinema lenses. All this lets you create distinctive content in the highest quality!

Interchangeable Lens Mounts

Interchangeable Lens Mounts

Different projects require different lenses which is why URSA Cine features an interchangeable lens mount. You can quickly switch between PL, LPL, EF and Hasselblad mounts. That means you can work with PL or LPL cinema lenses, EF or large format Hasselblad photographic lenses, making URSA Cine compatible with the widest possible range of professional lenses. Imagine using modern high speed lenses for sharp, precise images on one shoot and then shooting a period drama with vintage photographic lenses next! Plus, each mount has contact pins to read lens metadata for monitoring and for use in post production. With URSA Cine, you have the freedom to choose the lens you need for any kind of work!

High Resolution Monitoring and Camera Control

URSA Cine lets crews work faster on set with multiple monitoring options! The fold out monitor has a large 5″ HDR touchscreen on one side and an external color status LCD on the other. You can even rotate the screen and fold it back into the camera! On the right side of the camera, there’s a dedicated assist station with a second 5″ HDR touchscreen which allows crew to work around the camera without needing external monitors. Plus, with a 1500 nit display and removable sunshade, it’s always visible, even in bright sunlight. On screen overlays show status and record parameters, histogram, frame guides and more. There’s even a dedicated focus puller’s mode to help you get perfect focus!

ugged Industry Standard Connections

The wide range of industry standard connections on URSA Cine make it perfect for high end cinema production. The 7 pin Lemo and 3 pin Fischer connectors at the front provide record start/stop and 24V power so are ideal for on board accessories such as focus motors. Camera power is provided by a standard 24V 8 pin Lemo connection, plus there's an additional 2 pin Lemo 12V connection at the rear for lower voltage accessories. All this means you can power accessories straight from the camera without messy external cabling! There are also two independent 12G-SDI outputs for monitoring on 2 different monitors with different overlays, plus 10G Ethernet for Blackmagic Cloud media syncing!

Blackmagic RAW Fueled Image Capture

Blackmagic RAW Fueled Image Capture

Blackmagic RAW is a revolutionary format designed to capture and preserve the quality of the sensor data from your camera. Blackmagic RAW files store camera metadata, lens data, white balance, digital slate information and custom LUTs to ensure consistency of image on set and through post production. Constant quality options lock the quality level, allowing compression to adapt, matching the detail of the scene. Constant bitrate encoding options are designed to give you the best possible images with predictable and consistent file size. URSA Cine records to the included Blackmagic Media Module 8TB, allowing you to capture over 4 hours of Blackmagic RAW in 12K or a massive 20 hours in 4K!

Generation 5 Color Science
 

Generation 5 Color Science

Blackmagic Generation 5 Color Science features a new film curve designed to make full use of the massive amount of color data from the new URSA Cine sensor. This delivers even better color response for more pleasing skin tones, and better rendering of highly saturated colors such as neon signs and car tail lights in high contrast scenes. Generation 5 Color Science informs complex Blackmagic RAW image processing, with color 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!

 
Built in OLPF

Built in Optical Low Pass Filter

The high frequencies of synthetic materials like fabrics or the LED matrix in video walls can cause problems for ultra sharp modern lenses and high resolution sensors, creating interference patterns. Using an optical low pass filter minimizes that interference, which results in a reduction of moire and aliasing. URSA Cine includes a high performance, optical low pass filter that is precisely matched to the sensor. The OLPF also incorporates updated IR filtering that improves far red color response which, when combined with Blackmagic RAW processing for the URSA Cine, preserves color and critical image detail for new levels of image fidelity.


 
Built In Color Balanced ND Filter

Built in Color Balanced ND Filters

URSA Cine features high quality ND filters that let you quickly reduce the amount of light entering the camera. Designed to match the colorimetry and color 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 Cine 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!

220 FPSFull Frame Capture at Higher Frame Rates

 

URSA Cine is multiple cameras in one, shooting standard resolutions and frame rates in 4K, 8K, Super 35 9K and even insanely detailed 12K!

For higher frame rates, you can shoot 144 fps at 8192 x 5360, 180 fps at 8192 x 3408 and even capture 8K 2.4:1 widescreen at an incredible 224 fps at 8,192 x 3,408! URSA Cine has flexible frame rate and resolution options, and captures with incredible motion rendering with smoother edges in 8K and 4K, even at lower frame rates. Plus, with a massive 100 megapixels per frame at up to 80 fps in Blackmagic RAW, you can capture perfect stills and motion shots at the same time!

High Performance Internal Media for Recording
