Say hello to the Blackmagic URSA Mini 4K EF, a compact, lightweight and affordable 4K digital film camera. It’s the ideal camera for any pro shooting job, from ads and music videos to documentaries and feature films.

Inside its tough magnesium alloy shell is some superb technology, including a Super 35 CMOS sensor, 12G-SDI output, a 5” articulated HD touchscreen, 12 stops of dynamic range, dual CFast 2.0 slots for continuous recording and an EF mount for fitting a huge range of compatible lenses.

Strong, durable and well balanced, the Blackmagic URSA 4K Mini can take the hard knocks of life shooting in the field. Weighing in at just 2.3 kg, it’s ideal for all-day use on the shoulder or as a handheld camera.

The removable handgrip, with start/stop record button and LANC cable connection, provides extra control for handheld or tripod use.

All essential controls are within easy reach, while the port locations are designed to keep cables neatly tucked away.

The perfect piece of kit for documentary shoots, magazine shows, reality TV, broadcast TV, or movie making on a budget. Large production teams and self-shooters alike will love the Blackmagic URSA 4K Mini’s portability, stunning 4K imaging, smooth workflow integration and full complement of professional features.

With its vivid 1080p HD touchscreen, easily accessible controls, dual CFast 2.0 slots, SDI outputs and a range of available accessories, the Blackmagic URSA 4K Mini punches well above its price range.

As the name suggests, the Blackmagic URSA 4K Mini is equipped with stunningly accurate Super 35 CMOS 4K Sensor and global shutter that produces consistently crisp footage at resolutions of 4000 x 2160, 3840 x 2160 and 1920 x 1080.

The 5” Full HD fold out touchscreen is the only on-board monitor you’ll need, delivering easy access to the camera’s main functions and good visibility even in daylight.

In the box alongside your Blackmagic URSA 4K Mini you’ll find a turret dust cap, side grip with LANC cable and strap, power supply, and software and manual (on SD card). But there are plenty of accessories available that will transform the way you use the device.

Select from your choice of EF mount lenses, either Canon-made or third-party. While for added control when shooting, the Blackmagic URSA shoulder kit enables you to comfortably mount the camera on your shoulder, while the optional 1080p OLED viewfinder offers clear, bright monitoring for either right-sided or left-sided operation.

If you need a resolution boost and DCI shooting options, the Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K could be for you. It’s additional resolution tops out at 4608 x 2592, meaning 4K 16:9, 2.4:1 and DCI are all possible. And it offers 15 stops of dynamic range for even better low-light performance and picture quality.
