The Super 35 sensor has aÂ superb 14 stops of dynamic range and aÂ native ISO of 800.Â The newÂ 12K sensor has equal amounts of red, green and blue pixels and is optimized for images at multiple resolutions.Â You canÂ shoot 12K at 60Â fps or use in-sensor scaling to allow 8KÂ or 4K RAWÂ at up to 110Â fps without cropping or changing your field ofÂ view. URSA Mini Proâ€™s interchangeable lens mount lets you choose from the widest range of vintage and modern cinema lenses, so you can capture every ounce of characterÂ and detailÂ from your favoriteÂ optics.
Shoot inÂ 12K, Edit onÂ aÂ Laptop
The URSA Mini Pro 12K sensor and Blackmagic RAW were designed together to make 12Â bit RAW workflows in 12K effortless. AsÂ an incredibly efficient next generation codec Blackmagic RAW lets you shoot 12K and edit on aÂ laptop, aÂ capability that simply isnâ€™t possible with other codecs.Â The massiveÂ resolution of the sensor means you can reframe shots in post for delivery inÂ 8K andÂ 4K. Itâ€™s like aÂ multi camera shoot with only one camera. And itâ€™s perfect for great looking vertical and square video, too. The advanced design of the sensor and Blackmagic RAW means that you can work in any resolution in post production instantly, without rendering,Â while retainingÂ the full sensorâ€™s colorÂ accuracy.
BlackmagicÂ RAWÂ Fueled ImageÂ Capture
Only Blackmagic RAW makes cinema quality 12â€‘bit, 80 megapixel images at up to 60Â frames aÂ reality! Constant quality Q0 and Q5 options and new Q1 and Q3 lock the quality level, allowing compression to adapt, matching the detail of the scene. Constant bitrate encoding options 5:1, 8:1, 12:1 and the new 18:1 are designed to give you the best possible images with predictable and consistent file size. You can record RAW to two cards simultaneously so you can shoot 12K orÂ 8K to either CFast or UHSâ€‘II cards, even at high frameÂ rates! Blackmagic RAW stores camera metadata, lens data, white balance, digital slate information and custom LUTs to ensure consistency of image on set and through postÂ production.
OptimizedÂ for FastÂ Flexible Post Production
Shooting RAW in 12K preserves the deepest control of detail, exposure and color during post. Oversampling means you get extremely sharp 8K without harsh edges. Best of all, Blackmagic RAW is designed to accelerate 12K for post production, making it as easy to work with as standard HD or UltraÂ HD files. It is highly optimized, multiâ€‘threaded, works across multiple CPU cores and is also GPU accelerated to work with Apple Metal, CUDA and OpenCL. So you can always work with your camera RAW files without having to make proxies. Blackmagic RAW 12K images provide unprecedented resolution and quality for color, keying, compositing, reframing, stabilization and tracking inÂ 4KÂ orÂ 8K.
Generation 5 Color Science
Blackmagic GenerationÂ 5 Color Science features aÂ new film curve designed to make full use of the massive amount of color data from the new URSA Mini Pro 12K 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. GenerationÂ 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, GenerationÂ 5 Color Science lets you take advantage of the new film curve even with your existingÂ work!
