Capture the heart of your story with a true cinematic look and feel using the redesigned URSA Cine 12K LF Camera with EVF Kit from Blackmagic Design. The new URSA Cine 12K sports a gorgeous new cinematic 12K full-frame 36 x 24mm sensor with an advertised 16 stops of dynamic range and Blackmagic raw capture up to 12K 3:2 open gate. This kit includes an adjustable top assembly with a bright, powerful USB-C EVF. The versatile camera features Wi-Fi and SRT live streaming, built-in ND filters, LEMO and Fischer standard control/power connections, high-speed networking for cloud storage and M.2 SSD media, and comes default with an industry-standard PL mount.

Cinematic Large-Format Sensor

The URSA Cine camera 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 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.

High-End Body Design

The 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 a 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.

Numerous Formats

The large-format sensor in URSA Cine provides the ultimate in flexibility for aspect ratios, lenses, and delivery formats. The full-frame 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 Super35 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

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.

Monitoring and Camera Control

The 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 cd/m² 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.

Industry-Standard Connections

The wide range of industry-standard connections on URSA Cine makes 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 onboard 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 two different monitors with different overlays, plus 10G Ethernet for Blackmagic Cloud media syncing.

Blackmagic RAW 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 bit rate encoding options are designed to give you the best possible images with predictable and consistent file sizes. The URSA Cine records to the included Blackmagic Media Module 8TB, allowing you to capture over four hours of Blackmagic RAW in 12K or a massive 20 hours in 4K.

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 Optical Low-Pass Filter

The high frequencies of synthetic materials like fabrics or the LED matrix in video walls can cause problems for ultrasharp 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. The 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 Filters

The 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.

High-Resolution, High Frame Rate Capture

The URSA Cine is multiple cameras in one, shooting standard resolutions and frame rates in 4K, 8K, Super35 9K, and even insanely detailed 12K. You can shoot 100 fps in 12K 12,288 x 6480 17:9 or 120 fps in 12K 2.4:1 widescreen. 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. The camera has flexible frame rate and resolution options, and it captures incredible motion rendering with smoother edges in 8K and 4K, even at lower frame rates. Plus, with a massive 100MP 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 Recording Media

URSA Cine is the first digital film camera with ultrafast high capability Cloud Store technology built in. Blackmagic Media Module is fast and rugged and includes a massive 8TB of storage. It's like a Cloud Store Mini built into your camera. The high-speed storage lets you record at the highest resolutions and frame rates for hours and access your files directly over high-speed 10G Ethernet. Or you can use the media you already own with the optional Blackmagic Media Module CF, which has dual CFexpress slots. The module can be easily removed from the camera and loaded into a Blackmagic Media Dock for transferring media to a network or Blackmagic Cloud for instant global collaboration.

Fast Media Offloading

The optional Blackmagic Media Dock accelerates your post-production workflow by making it faster and simpler to start editing and color correction. Mount up to three Blackmagic Media Modules for high-speed access to media from multiple URSA Cine cameras all at the same time. The four high-speed 10G Ethernet ports allow up to four separate edit workstations to connect directly, and it is extremely fast, even when a lot of users are connected at the same time. Plus, the USB-C connection supports Ethernet so you can transfer media using a simple USB-C cable connected to your computer. There is also an HDMI output that lets you see the status of your media in real time on a TV or monitor.

Deliver Clips Directly into DaVinci Resolve Bins

The URSA Cine supports creating a small H.264 proxy file in addition to the camera's original media when recording. This means the small proxy file can upload to Blackmagic Cloud in seconds so your media is available back at the studio in real time. The ability to transfer media directly into the DaVinci Resolve media bin as editors are working is revolutionary and has never before been possible. Any editor working anywhere in the world will get the shots. If you have multiple cameras, then the new multisource feature in DaVinci Resolve's Cut page will show each camera angle in a multiview. Blackmagic Cloud is a revolution in global post-production workflows.

Connect to Mobile Data, High-Speed Wi-Fi, or Ethernet

When live streaming or uploading to Blackmagic Cloud, you can connect and use an Apple or Android phone to get a connection to the internet via mobile data. Simply connect the phone to the USB-C port and URSA Cine will configure for mobile data. Plus it works with the latest high-speed 5G phones, as well as 4G. You can also connect via high-speed Wi-Fi or wired Ethernet using the 10G Ethernet port. With live streaming built into the camera, you get the solution you need for clients and post-production to monitor shoots from anywhere in the world. That's a truly global post-production solution that works with Blackmagic Cloud to create amazing teams of creative people all working together.

Live Stream Directly to Your Client

Now you can live stream from film sets. The URSA Cine features a built hardware streaming engine that supports RTMP and SRT streaming to major platforms or directly to clients. Simply connect to the internet via Ethernet, high-speed Wi-Fi, or even connect a 4G or 5G phone for mobile data. As the streaming is built into the camera, you can see the stream status and data rate in the viewfinder and the LCD. If you want to create a wireless link back to the video village or the studio, then you can stream to a Blackmagic ATEM Streaming Bridge, which is an H.264 decoder that converts the video stream back to video. Now everyone can keep an eye on the shoot, live, while it's happening.

Includes High-Resolution Viewfinder

The URSA Cine includes Blackmagic URSA Cine EVF to make outdoor and handheld shooting accurate and easy. You get an integrated high-quality 1920 x 1080 color OLED display with a built-in proximity sensor and a 4-element glass diopter for incredible accuracy with a wide focus adjustment. A built-in digital focus chart ensures you get the perfect viewfinder focus setup. You can also view critical status information, such as frame guides. The URSA Cine EVF is easy to connect as it simply mounts to the included viewfinder bracket and connects to the camera using a single USB-C cable. The viewfinder can be positioned in multiple ways and comes with two different types of eyecups.

Industry-Standard Batteries and Power

The URSA Cine includes an 8-pin LEMO power connector at the back of the camera that works with 24V and 12V power supplies. That means it's easy to use the camera with existing power supplies, batteries, and accessories. The front of the camera includes additional LEMO and Fischer connectors for powering lens motors and other accessories. The URSA Cine comes with a massive 250W power supply and B-mount battery plate so you can use a wide range of high-voltage batteries from manufacturers such as IDX, Blueshape, Core SWX, BEBOB, and more. You can also add the optional Blackmagic URSA Cine V-lock Battery Plate or Blackmagic URSA Cine Gold Battery Plate for using legacy V-mount and Gold mount batteries.

With advanced Blackmagic OS, you get an intuitive and user-friendly camera operating system based on the latest technology. Blackmagic OS is a true modern operating system where all camera features run independently for smoother control, plus the camera powers on virtually instantly. URSA Cine features the same controls and menus as other Blackmagic Design cameras so you can move between cameras on set easily. The interface uses simple tap and swipe gestures to adjust settings, add metadata, and view recording status. You also get full control over advanced camera features such as on-screen focus and exposure tools, 3D LUTs, HDR, metadata entry, timecode, Blackmagic RAW settings, and more.

Digital Slate for Fast Metadata Entry

The URSA Cine features a digital slate so you can quickly add metadata to any shot. Simply swipe left or right on the built-in touchscreen to bring up the digital slate. If you start and stop recording the slate can automatically increment the take numbers so you don't have to enter them manually for each shot. You can also set your reel numbers to increment automatically each time you format a card. Lens metadata is automatically populated or it can be entered manually, along with production-specific information, technical information, and more. All of the metadata is saved with the files for use in post-production when editing and color correcting with software such as DaVinci Resolve.

Wireless Bluetooth Camera Control

If you're positioning the camera on the end of a jib or gimbal, you can get full control via Bluetooth from up to 30' away. You can download the Blackmagic Camera Control app for your iPad or use third-party apps such as Bluetooth+ or tRigger on your iOS and Android devices. There's even a free developer SDK with sample code available from the Blackmagic Design developer website, so you can create your own remote camera control and digital slate solutions. Imagine building an app that can jam sync timecode and trigger all cameras to record at the same time.
