Available for hire - the Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6k EF mount film camera ENG full shooting kit. (A couple more add-ons to come to this package including a shotgun mic and offset shock mount plus a Wooden Camera bracket for attaching Radio mics to the back side and an alternate mini start/stop lanc control. Photos coming soon)
This camera is supplied with a V-lock battery plate on the back plus a 2 x PAG 150w V-link V-lock battery and V-link micro charger kit. Canon CN-E 18-80 Cine Servo zoom lens (parfocal), Blackmagic OLED Viewfinder, Blackmagic shoulder mount kit and 128GB of CFast 2.0 card/s with card reader.
Contact us or see our other shooting kits for inclusions of Radio Mic's, Shotgun mic, Matt Box, 4x4 filters, tripod and more batteries and CFAST cards.
The compact URSA Mini camera with EF lens mount, 4.6K Super 35 sensor and an incredible 15 stops of dynamic range, is lightweight and perfectly balanced for handheld use and comfortable enough for all day shooting. The mini URSA is light enough to fit on a gimbal too like the DJI Ronin (with Ronin extension arms and no EVF). URSA Mini 4.6K EF features professional 12G-SDI connections, 5” fold out touchscreen monitor and side grip with camera control functions as well as dual CFast card recorders, built in stereo microphones and more. The side grip can be moved to an offset position and comes with an extension arm as part of the shoulder mount kit. This ENG style setup using the Cine zoom lens grip is the best way to support the camera shoulder mounted and balances very well on the shoulder. The micro start/stop lanc is better to use then the Blackmagic side grip in this mode too.
Bundled with the Canon CN-E 18-80mm T4.4 Cine-Servo Zoom lens, Blackmagic OLED viewfinder, the Shoulder mount kit, VCT plate, this becomes the ideal camera for both shoulder mounted and tripod mounts shots - with a quick changeover between the two. Add on a couple of fast primes and a couple of radio mics and away you go. If your shooting only 1080 then you can switch into windowed sensor mode and extend the lens range x2.
The Canon CN-E lens currently does not support Auto focus or Auto exposure control on the mini Ursa, but the Image Stabiliser does work in all modes and the lens is par-focal as expected. The zoom controller is pressure sensitive so you can do fast zooom or slow by adjusting how hard you press down or you can switch the servo off and use the manual zoom ring on the lens. Manual focus has no hard stops but you are not likely to use a follow focus with this lens setup. This lens has a manual Iris ring.
