I just stopped by the convention center in Las Vegas to pick up my press pass for NAB and couldn’t help but notice this sign (pictured below), announcing the brand new Blackmagic URSA Mini!
Tomorrow at 9:30am Blackmagic Design will be holding a press conference (which I will be attending) and I can only imagine that the new Blackmagic URSA Mini will be amongst the largest announcements made. For now, there isn’t a whole lot to report here other than what you might gather from the banner, but it certainly looks promising.
The current Blackmagic URSA is an unbelievable camera, and one that I have now owned for a couple of weeks. The Mini version is sure to impress those shooters that were interested in the URSA but were looking for a smaller form factor, and lighter body. Not to mention 15 stops of DR and a Super 35mm 4.6K sensor is nothing to scoff at! Here’s hoping that Blackmagic has this sensor (or a similar version) available to upgrade on the current URSA body.
