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.

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...

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...

Great image with good lighting. Bad image with no lighting.


Overall, for just under 3K your getting a heck of camera. This camera is not for everybody, seeing as you need to have proper lighting to achieve a usable image. If you are used to DSLR's and the A7 cameras, where you don't have to properly light an...

Absolutely Fantastic!


I waited for a while to receive my Ursa Mini and it just arrived last week. While I waited, I acquired the various accessories. I was really impressed with the high resolution and image quality from this little beast. The slow motion at 120fps is a...

Screen went out! Noise at 200asa


Worst camera I have ever purchased, it didn't even last four hours! From the footage I was able to shoot it had noise at the lowest possible ISO. Now I know that it's not a low light camera. But I'm shooting outdoors in the middle of the day, I'm even...

A nightmare


On my 3rd camera the other 2 had a handful of different issues. The commonality was they both had several dead pixels. Let's hope the 3rd camera works once it arrives or I'll just move to something else.
