Blackmagic Design has set the bar extremely high for consumer-grade cinema cameras with their all-new Ursa Mini Pro 12K. It may look similar to its predecessor, the Ursa Mini Pro, but is now has a 12,288 x 6480 12K Super 35 sensor, complete with 14 stops of dynamic range. This camera is designed for high-end production and ships with a PL Mount however, while an EF mount will also be available for those who require it.

At $9995, the new sensor is 80-megapixels per frame with new color science and includes Blackmagic RAW. This means you’ll be able to shoot at 60 frames per second in 12K with 80 megapixels per frame, while oversampling from 12K gives you 8K and 4K images. It also features Generation 5 color science and a new updated Film Curve designed to optimally use the large amount of color data from the 12K sensor. The footage is also compatible with all previously shot Blackmagic RAW files. Other features include built-in ND filters, dual CFast / UHS‑II SD card recorders, a SuperSpeed USB‑C expansion port, and DaVinci Resolve Studio.
