Description

Description :

The URSA 4K Digital Cinema Camera features a form factor that is designed to make it flexible enough to use on productions of all sizes. From a single operator all the way up to a full camera crew. At the heart of the imaging system, URSA features a 3840 x 2160 resolution, global shutter CMOS sensor with 12 stops of dynamic range. The camera records and outputs in the 2160p format, a 16:9 standard with precisely four times the resolution of 1080p, often referred to as UltraHD.

URSA features a 10.1", 1080p resolution flip-out LCD screen so that you won't necessarily need an on-camera monitor. Additionally, there are two 5" capacitive touchscreens, one on either side of the body. These allow you to access the menu system and can display data such as timecode and audio waveforms.

 

One of the most powerful features is support for higher frame rate recording combined with menu control of recording frames rates. The recording frame rate can be as high as 80 frames per second, which allows enhanced slow motion shooting with a more fluid feel to shots. Also the frame rate settings are not limited by the video frame rate. This means you can select a frame rate such as 24 frames per second for a feature film shoot, and then independently select the recording rate from 5 all the way up to 80 frames per second. The advantage of this is the URSA camera can shoot slow motion or fast motion shots but all the recorded video files are always set to the video rate, and you can see the effect of the higher or slower frame rate when playing. This means you can playback the exact same look on the cameras as the clips will play in a time line of editing software.

 

Internally, URSA can record in the two formats. The first is 12-bit CinemaDNG RAW, a losslessly compressed RAW codec designed to give you the greatest latitude for image manipulation in post production. The second is Apple Pro Res 422 (HQ), a debayered codec for easier playback and editing in a wide range of video editing applications. Additionally, ProRes also requires less storage space for extended recording times. Video is recorded to CFast 2.0 memory cards, and the camera features two slots allowing you to hot swap media for continuous, uninterrupted recording.
 

Additionally CFast cards can be formatted in the camera, so when on a shoot, a computer is not needed to prepare the cards for use. Unlike formatting on a computer, the Blackmagic URSA camera technically analyzes the CFast card’s memory storage structure and will optimize formatting to allow best performance when used for real time digital film data recording. This means a card formatted in URSA can get much better performance than a card formatted on a computer.


IMPORTANT NOTES

DaVinci Resolve Lite software can be downloaded here at no cost.

The Camera does not have a hotshoe mount, nor does it include any kind of hot shoe adapter.

This is a large camera that weighs almost 17lbs before adding lenses, batteries, and other accessories and you will therefore need to be prepared for working with a large heavy rig.

User Review
Raychel Armstrong   Liz and Steve are two amazing people that own one amazing business! I've been going to them now for over 4 years now. They've always been accommodating and I am thankful to have found a great business to rent camera equipment from. Recently Liz went out of her way to get me a rental that I needed desperately. Thank you so much and I will continue to suggest LensPal to those looking for rentals!
Waynestorm   This was the second time I've rented camera from Lenspal,originally for a fashion show, this time for my sons wedding! Customer service is personal and excellent and the equipment is professional. Impressed both times and will rent again!
Randolph B   Rented from another place in town that people rave about. They failed to deliver working items that really screwed up the shoot I had to do. Their attitude after the incident drove me to find Lens Pal. Lens Pal provided solid, working gear with a happy and cheery customer service. I couldn't be happier and am glad to have a local business to support. Will use them again for sure.
Scott Dentinger   Great and easy experience. Excellent communication. Highly recommended
Junaid   The staff was superb. Very very cooperative and friendly. All equipments were new and in good shape
Crockett   The Staff are very friendly and professional. I have dealt with them on two occasions now, and will gladly continue to do business with The LensPal
Kathy   Customer service A+ Website inviting and easy to use
Jared   No complaints whatsoever, item arrived swiftly and in great condition. It worked perfectly and had no issues shipping item back. Their communication during the whole process was prompt and cordial. I will definitely be doing business with them in the future.
Patrick   If you need to rent photography equipment look no further, the Lens Pal is the only place I use!The staff is excellent, so friendly and helpful I always go and pick up my rentals at the office just to stop and chat with them for a bit. I have been renting equipment from them for 3 years now, lenses, flashes and even camera bodies and have never once had an issue. The equipment has always been in excellent shape and worked just as it is supposed to! Thanks to the Lens Pal I have been able to expanded my photography as a craft and business at a fraction of the cost if I had to purchase the equipment. They have even come to my rescue at the last minute once or twice and completely saved me from not having the right equipment to get the job done. I can't say enough good things about this place and the people that work there! Just trust me once and rent from the Lens Pal, you'll thank me later!
Lisa   (Canon 70-200mm f/4 IS USM) I was really impressed with my experience. It was so easy picking up and dropping off the lens. The only issue, which might not be the fault of the company (user error?), was that the lens I rented seemed to be performing a bit poorly. Autofocus was very slow and made a negative impact on the shots I was able to produce at each shoot. However, I am more than happy to give it another go! Great customer service and looking forward to renting another lens soon. Thank you!
Brian J.   Super fast delivery, and excellent selection. A great way for me to try out some different lenses in a real world environment at a very affordable price. Thanks again TheLensPal!
Sherpa   An extremely easy and nice experience. I rented the Nikon 24mm 1.4 and got some great star photos while on a photography workshop. A great lens and a great experience.
Bob   Service is professional - as well as very personable which is extremely important to me. As a professional shooter I enjoy being treated as I treat my customer.I will recommend you to anyone I know who would be in need of your services.
Brenda   Great place, great people! I have enjoyed renting a telephoto lens for volleyball games and when my daughter was on homecoming court the pictures were terrific, even if she she wasn't crowned queen. Everyone is so helpful and the location is convenient!
B   Terrific service! Really enjoyed stopping by the Winter Garden office to pick up the perfect lens for high school volleyball games. Staff are so friendly and helpful, can't wait to rent again!
Garybogdon   I've been a contributing photographer for Sports Illustrated for over 12 years, and over 20 years of photojournalism experience before that- started shooting with film camera's back in the 1970's- so lets call it a long time. I can't say enough great things about the people at The LensPal- their equipment is always in absolute mint, perfection condition when I rent it and they go above and beyond in helping me get the equipment I need for the next big shoot. Recently rented the Canon 1DX along with a Canon IS 300mm 2.8 lens ( shooting NFL for Sports Illustrated ) and it worked beautifully . Lightweight, super fast focus and razor sharp, especially in low light ( iso 4000 ) shooting fast moving action sports. Check out the latest issue ( NFL Preview ) of Sports Illustrated for some of my recent work. I would give The LensPal, and their staff 5 plus stars!
Chuck   I already had a rental lens from Lens Pal on my trip to Maine, but when I dropped and broke my own lens I called Lens Pal for help. They overnighted a lens to take the place of my own lens I broke to save my trip from being a complete disaster! That's what I call great customer servie.
Twinice   As owner of my own Production Company, I can say that TheLensPal is single handedly THE BEST direct resource for photographers and videographers to get their hands on highest quality gear out there at an exceptional price. Their extensive gear list, professionalism, attention to detail and customer service have guaranteed a regular customer out of me - THANK YOU!!
Eric   Hey Folks, A huge thank you to the folks at The Lens Pal for making my weekend at the boat races incredibly fantastic. Rented a Nikon 80-400MM AF-S VR lens and it was perfect for the hydros. You can check out a small sampling on Face Book. The staff is wonderful, the rental process is super easy and convenient and the lens performed flawlessly. Eric Bartell
Kristen   Stephen and his wife were extremely helpful in recommendations and service. I will continue to rent from them because they make it a quick and easy process with the best customer service!
V   Had a full weekend event to cover and your team got what I needed to me on time and had the most hassle free way to return it. Equipment worked great and the weekend was a success. Thanks again...I will be a returning customer. V
Sara   Love this company! Always a great experience and always the kindest people to converse with!
Link   Good afternoon, I just wanted to say a huge thank you for providing the option to have the rentals sent to the other locations with no charge for the option. This was a great idea and kudos to whomever came up with it! I had my lens shipped to the Frames store in Lake Mary and I had my wife pick up the lens for me as I was working. Ironically we were looking for a good picture framing shop to frame a bunch of art and posters we have. So to say it was a win win situation as we will be using that shop to have our frames custom made. Thank you again and whoever reads this aside from Steve and his lady tell them Lincoln said hi and thank you for your awesome service! Lincoln Wood
Reggie   This is our 2nd time ordering from The Lens Pal and we have been extremely happy with the service they provide! Reasonable prices and equipment has always been in excellent condition!
ProView   As always, Stephen and Liz of The Lens Pal were a complete joy to rent equipment from. They are both extremely friendly, warm and accommodating. Every time I have needed to rent equipment, they have been and will continue to be my first choice! I highly recommend TheLensPal.com for all of your camera, lens & accessory rental needs! Greg Cohen Owner, Professional Photographer ProView Photography
Na   Easy to work with, excellent service! Will rent again.
Lauren   The people at the lens pal were absolutely wonderful. I had heard great reviews from several people and decided to use them-they were so kind and every time I came in had huge smiles on their faces. I would tell anyone I know that needs the service to rent from them! Super kind and professional.
Fotohaber   Absolutely great professional service. Always keep the time, and the equipment's is nice and perfect condition.Reliable service. Please keep up the good work. Thanks for all the help. JK
Kat   The LensPal provide such amazing service. This is my third time renting from them and plan to continue to come back. I always receive friendly customer service over the phone and in person. They helped me figure out what I needed for a big upcoming event. One piece ended up missing in the package. I called and they came personally to my home, a 45 minutes drive away from their office, just to make sure I had it for the event. I was so very very impressed and satisfied with them. Highly recommend them!!
Mark   Had a great experience with Lens Pal renting an LED panel light. The office was friendly and very helpful. I will definitely rent from them again. Sincerely, Mark
Bob   This is a great service! I had the opportunity to try out the type of lens I was considering buying. However, since I can rent it when needed at The Lens Pal at a reasonable price, I think I'll save my money and just rent it when I need it!!
Valrico Shooter   This was my first time dealing with LensPal. I rented a Nikkor 105. The rate for rental, including shipping was very reasonable. The lens arrived in excellent condition and the packaging was professional and secure. I was very impressed with their service and email contacts throughout the rental period. I will work with LensPal again.
Jenny   The lens pal is a consistently reliable company, and I highly recommend them. I have never had any issues with equipment failure or Shipments. I did have difficulty placing an order online one time and I called the company to figure out the problem. They had fixed whatever error and my order was processed and confirmed within the hour. I highly recommend this company for any rental needs you have. The customer service is amazing, the owners are personable, caring and professional, and they are ready and willing to assist you with any questions or needs you may have.
La4photo   Great Service. Excellent communication. Fine Equipment. I will be contacting Steve and TheLensPal team for all of my rental needs in the future.
Cliff   I met Jessica at Colonial Photo and Hobby Shop. We spoke briefly and after finding she was an employee of The LensPal, I thought I would try out their services by renting a Nikon 16mm fisheye lens. I rented this item for 7 days and found the service very good. In fact, I plan to use them again. Thanks for all your help ladies (Jessica and Liz).
LauraK   I recently rented a Nikon 105mm Macro lens from The LensPal. The equipment I received was in excellent condition, like new, and the customer service was excellent. Can recommend LensPal for equipment rental without hesitation.
Pjwinter   These guys are close by - only 45 miles away, so I always drive out and back to pick up and drop off. This was my second visit. First was for a summer family vacation to Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park with a super telephoto and wide angle. Posters of the key landmarks are wonderful. This trip was to State College, PA for spring break at Penn State and a side trip to Niagara Falls where the wide angle took wonderful sets for day break and sun set with -0C temperatures... Thanks so much !
CanonRebel   Once again I am extremely overwhelmed with the quality of equipment and customer service provided by our friends at The Lens Pal... this is a very convenient and inexpensive resource for upcoming for potographers like myself... and I'm looking forward to renting more equipment from The Lens Pal in the near future!
Josh   We loved renting from you guys and getting to talk to you for a few minutes today! Such a small company with lots of rental gear to choose from! We hope to be renting very frequently from you guys and hope to keep a great relationship with you! Thank you very much! Sincerely, Josh Weatherly - Director of Operations Richard Yates - Operations Manger and the rest of the staff at Josh Weatherly Photography
Bazidl   UNBELIEVABLE CUSTOMER SERVICE! I order a Canon 5D Mark III and an 20 - 70 L for a trip during the holiday break. Due to the weird holiday schedule UPS messed up my shipping and was going to deliver the package after I had already left. After reading my delivery status I emailed TheLensePal and explained the situation. They immediately called me back with a proposed solution. They recalled the original package and since they had no more 5D MarkIII's in stock they shipped me out a 1DS Mark3 and the lens with one day express shipping FREE OF CHARGE!!! It wasn't even their fault that UPS screwed up but they wanted to make sure I had something to take with me on my trip. The camera and lens both arrived in brand new condition! I highly recommend TheLensPal and will def use them in the future!
IanH   Very nice people, very nice lens (canon 10-22mm), very nice service and all at a great price too. More than happy to recommend and will certainly look forward to hiring more top quality kit from thelenspal for my future trips to Florida. Thank you.
A Pandey   Very nice company to get camera and lens on rent
