Blackmagic Ursa Footage

Here it is. What many of us have waited for. Blackmagic Ursa footage. This camera certainly works well in low light, and I imagine it performs well in many other ways too. Love it or hate it, it sports the largest camera viewfinder available on any camera. It seems as though the Ursa is going to become the maximum crowd-pleaser of cinema cameras largely due to the fact that it can sport three different lens types.

From the Blackmagic Design web site:

Professional Digital
Film Camera

Designed for feature films, television commercials and more!

Blackmagic URSA is designed to be used on high end feature films, commercials, episodic television production, documentaries, electronic news gathering, music videos and more. When used on jobs with a large crew you can easily dress the camera with high quality cinema lenses, rails, follow focus, matte boxes and more. With built in scopes for exposure, focus and audio levels, it’s easy for DOP’s to get perfect results every time. The dedicated screen for camera assistants lets them check and update camera parameters independently of the DOP. If you’re shooting solo then the large fold out on set monitor, built in scopes and internal recorder means you don’t need any extra on set equipment because it’s all built into the camera. That’s a whole film set of equipment built into the one extremely portable design!

First footage from the Blackmagic URSA

Great-looking first footage from Blackmagic’s URSA

The very first shots from the Blackmagic Ursa have finally arrived and if these first images are anything to go by it looks like the new modular camera could be a huge success in spite of its larger form factor. The footage has been shot by John Brawley who always produces great images and has a history of showing what Blackmagic cameras are really capable of – and this new footage would appear to be no exception.

John said:

“This clip was shot over a period of about 90 mins. I filled three of my four 128Gb SanDisk CFast 2.0 cards and did it on two Vlock batteries. Many of the shots were done before sunrise. Pretty impressive for 400 ISO @ T4 at that frame rate. All shots are ISO 400, 60 FPS at 4K UHD (3840 x 2160) ProRes HQ except for just one which was 24 FPS, the shot of the sun actually rising in shot.”
