To produce cinematic images, the URSA Mini can record raw sensor data in the CinemaDNG format onto CFast 2.0
memory cards at up to 60 fps.
The raw files preserve the full dynamic range and color tonality output from the sensor, so you can have greater
control over the look in post-production.
However, data-heavy uncompressed raw files aren't always easy to deal with on set, so in addition to
uncompressed raw recording, the 4K URSA Mini provides compressed raw recording at a 3:1 compression ratio to
save space while retaining post-production flexibility.
UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) and 1080p video
The URSA Mini also records UHD 4K (3840 x 2160) and 1080p video using ready-to-edit ProRes files in many
different flavors within the 444 and 422 chroma subsampling variations, depending on your workflow.
Starting at the high end, UHD footage can be recorded in ProRes 444 XQ at a rate of 312.5 MB/s all the way down
to 1080p in a ProRes 422 Proxy file coming in at a relatively paltry 5.6 MB/s data rate.
Since the camera accepts dual CFast cards, you can record for long periods of time by having the camera switch
cards when one is full.
4-pin XLR powerjack
Power for the URSA Mini can be supplied via a 4-pin XLR jack at the rear of the camera.
With an optional plate, the URSA will accept professional V-Mount or Gold Mount batteries on the back.
Once connected to power, the URSA can even distribute power through a second 4-pin XLR jack.
User-Interchangeable Lens Mounts
By default the URSA Mini Pro includes an interchangeable EF mount.
But, if you want to use lenses with F (Nikon), PL, or B4 mounts, separately available interchangeable mounts can
Having an interchangeable lens mount allows the URSA Mini Pro to be used in nearly any kind of workflow, from
documentary, to ENG or EFP, and cinema.
For ENG lenses, a 12-pin Hirose connector will power the servo so all lens functionality can be utilized.
