A Review of the Blackmagic Design Ursa Mini 4K/4.6K Camera


Meet the URSA Mini, one of Blackmagic design's newest and leanest cameras. Despite its “Mini” name and smaller build, this new URSA packs plenty of punch as a professional video shooter and its smaller, more efficient overall build makes it an...

Excellent range of pro specs and features ; Tough, compact body ; Powerful 4.6K Super-35mm sensor ; 4K video at 60 frames ; Excellent price tag ; Lots of available accessories and add-ons

Simultaneous dual memory recording isn’t possible

The URSA Mini and all its different versions form Blackmagic Design are some of the best 4K ultra HD pro video cameras in existence at this price. You cannot go wrong with this camera as your purchase choice.

Test : Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6K: Praxis und Gesamtfazit


Im Testlabor konnte die Ursa Mini 4.6K bereits punkten – doch wie sieht es in der Praxis aus? Wir werfen einen Blick auf Hauttöne, die diversen RAW-Varianten, das Handling im Minimal-Setup, den Dynamikumfang, Batterielaufzeiten, die Audioabteilung u.a.

Im Gegensatz zu unserem vom Februar diesen Jahres, die wir mit dem neuen hochwertigen BMD OLED Viewfinder, der Schulterstütze inkl. Rodklemmung und Top-Handle in der aufpreispflichtigen Maximalausstattung testen konnten, stand uns bei der neuen URSA...

Test : Die Blackmagic Design URSA Mini 4,6K im slashCAM-(Mess-)Test


An der Kamera selbst hat sich erwartungsgemäß wenig gegenüber unserem letzten Test des günstigeren 4K-Schwestermodells getan. Gleiches Gehäuse, gleiches Handling, fast gleiche Menüführung bis auf die neuen Funktionen für den neuen Sensor. Aufgefallen...

Doch kommen wir zum spannendsten Teil unseres Artikels, der Bildqualität. Schließlich suggeriert Blackmagic mit der krummen Sensorauflösung von 4,6K, dass die zusätzlichen Bayer-Pixel effektiv dazu genutzt werden können, um die grundsätzliche schwache...

Test : Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4K – Teil 1 Praxis und Handling


Während wir auf die Ursa Mini 4.6 K warten, hatten wir Gelegenheit, die Ursa Mini 4K zu einem kurzen Testdreh in RAW an die Oberbaumbrücke

Die Ursa Mini 4K punktet bei unserem kleinen RAW 3:1 Tageslicht-Dreh mit hoher Solidität, verbesserter Ergonomie, hervorragenden Monitor-Funktionen (HD-Viewfinder & Monitor) und einem sehr guten Bildeindruck..

This camera is absolutely amazing


I have been a really big fan of blackmagic design for many years. I love their software, and their cameras have such an amazing colour science behind them. I have been shooting with My Ursa mini 4.6k for awhile, and every time I look at the video image...

Extremely disappointing!


I have owned almost all of Blackmagics cameras at one point. I am currently the owner of the Ursa, and all I can say is this is the worst camera that Blackmagic has ever made. The quality control is extremely lacking, this is not a camera that will...

URSA Mini 4K


I'm simply writing to give a different angle on the product. I most certainly waiting a long time for the camera. I also wanted the shoulder kit that I ordered that never came prior to heading out to Asia where I live. I canceled the shoulder kit and...

Great camera for the price!


My first impressions on this camera are as follows. The build quality is very high quality to start. I'm using the 4K EF version. The horizontal lines were present at ISO 400/800, especially visible in low light situation. I tried with a fast len (50mm...

cameras love light


Just light your scene and you will get a high end camera for a absurdley small price. I have filmed for many years with The RED Epic and Alexa and I was quite happy to hear that BM was going to release the URSA mini, hoping for good cinematic image for...
