Blackmagic URSA: New sensor, accessories and versions
Blackmagic Design announced a plethora of new products at NAB 2015, including several URSA-related announcements. First is a new high performance Super 35 4.6K sensor featuring a resolution of 4608 x 2592 at 120 frames per second and an extremely wide 15 stops of dynamic range for images that rival those shot on traditional 35mm film. This new sensor will be available in two new models of the Blackmagic URSA camera. The Blackmagic URSA 4.6K EF model will be available for $6,995 US and the Blackmagic URSA 4.6K PL will be available for $7,495 US. Both 4.6K models will start initial limited availability shipments in June and ramp up into full volume late July and into August. Existing Blackmagic URSA customers can upgrade to the new 4.6K sensor for $1,995 US for the EF lens mount and $2,495 US for the PL lens mount. In addition, the current shipping 4K models of Blackmagic URSA EF and PL cameras will be reduced by $1,000 US allowing customers to get into Blackmagic URSA at an even more affordable price. This also means that the difference in price between the 4K and the 4.6K Blackmagic URSA cameras is the same price as the 4.6K sensor upgrade. This lets customers purchase a lower cost 4K camera initially and then upgrade later to the 4.6K image sensor without a price penalty. The new prices for the Blackmagic URSA 4K EF model will now be $4,995 US and the Blackmagic URSA 4K PL will be $5,495 US. Blackmagic Design also announced Blackmagic URSA Mini, a compact and lightweight Super 35 digital film camera with the new 4.6K image sensor, switchable global or rolling shutter, up to 15 stops of dynamic range, a large 5 inch fold out viewfinder and dual RAW and Apple ProRes recorders. Blackmagic URSA Mini is available in 4 models, customers can choose either EF or PL lens mounts and 4K or 4.6K image sensors. Prices for the Blackmagic URSA Mini start at $2,995 US for the 4K EF model. The company also announced Blackmagic URSA Viewfinder, a high resolution electronic viewfinder specifically designed for the Blackmagic URSA and Blackmagic URSA Mini digital film cameras.
