Now in a smaller, more handheld friendly form factor, The us Mini 4K Digital Cinema Camera from Blackmagic Design can record cinematic images with its Super-35mm 4K, global-shutter sensor with 12 stops of dynamic range. The ergonomic body design is balanced and can be utilized for numerous styles of filmmaking. The EF-mount is compatible with a plethora of popular lenses, opening up different aesthetic options. A rosette at the side of the camera accepts the included side maintain which is able to keep watch over start/stop by the use of a LANC connection.
To supply cinematic images, The us Mini can record raw sensor data within the CinemaDNG format onto CFast 2.0 memory cards at as much as 60 fps. The raw files preserve the entire dynamic range and color tonality output from the sensor so you’ll have greater keep watch over over the look in post-production. On the other hand, data-heavy uncompressed raw files don’t seem to be at all times easy to maintain on-set, so along with uncompressed raw recording, the 4K URSA Mini provides compressed raw recording at a 3:1 compression ratio to avoid wasting space whilst retaining post-production flexibility.
The us Mini also records UHD (3840 x 2160) and 1080p video the use of Able-to-edit ProRes files in numerous flavors inside the 444 and 422 chroma subsampling variations depending to your workflow. Starting at the high end, UHD footage can also be recorded in ProRes 444 XQ at a rate of 312.5 MB/s the entire way down to 1080p in a ProRes 422 Proxy file coming in at a slightly paltry 5.6 MB/s data rate. For the reason that camera accepts dual CFast cards, you’ll record for long periods of time by having the camera switch cards when one is full.
Power for The us Mini can also be supplied by the use of a 4-pin XLR jack at the rear of the camera. With an optional plate, The us will accept professional V-Mount or Gold-Mount batteries at the back. Once connected to power, The us will even distribute power through a second 4-pin XLR jack.
