NEW GEAR! Blackmagic Ursa Mini Pro Camera Package


That's right. We've added a couple new pieces of gear to our arsenal. The Blackmagic Ursa Mini Pro 4.6k camera is ready to be the anchor of your next project. Getting the right look is important to you and more importantly to us. At the heart of the camera is Blackmagic Design's acclaimed Super 35mm 4.6K sensor block, known for its ability to capture cinematic images with subtle gradients and large dynamic range rated at 15 stops. The URSA Mini Pro can record high resolution raw sensor data in the CinemaDNG format onto CFast 2.0 memory cards at up to 60 fps. The raw files preserve the full dynamic range and color tonality output from the sensor so you can have greater control over the look in post-production. However, data-heavy uncompressed raw files aren't always easy to deal with on-set, so in addition to uncompressed raw recording, the URSA Mini Pro provides compressed raw recording at 3:1 and 4:1 compression ratios to save space while retaining post-production flexibility. We'll film your next project with this amazing camera.
