The URSA mini also features dual CFast card recorders, built in stereo microphones and more.
The URSA Mini can record in various high definition resolutions ranging from 1080p up to 4.6K. The videos are formatted in ready-to-edit ProRes files within 444 and 422 chroma subsampling variations. The device can capture UHD footage that can be recorded in ProRes 444 XQ at a rate of 312.5 MB/s for long periods of time using CFast cards. Using raw sensor data in the CinemaDNG format, the URSA Mini easily captures full dynamic range and color tonality in footage of up to 60 frames per second. It is able to capture both raw files and compressed raw recordings at 3:1 and 4:1 compression ratios to save space and ease post-production flexibility.
4.6K Super-35mm Sensor
With 15 stops of dynamic range, the Super-35mm Sensor captures an effective resolution of 4608 x 2592, a resolution greater than that of UHD 4k. The wide exposure latitude allows for great control in post-production and prevents artifacting by enabling highlight recovery. The URSA Mini can record at high frame rates and can also record in slow motion at 1080p resolutions. The result is smooth, high quality footage.
