An URSA Made for Broadcast. A couple small changes to the URSA Mini Pro 4.6K make the Blackmagic Design URSABroadcast (B4) a broadcast-style camera with excellent video quality, an affordable price, and rare internal recording. The sensor is 2/3-inch and can record up to UHD4K at 60 fps.
Fujinon LA16x8BRM ENG Lens. The lens included in this kit has a 16x zoom ratio with a focal length of 8mm to 128mm. Lens functions are controlled by an attached servo grip when powered by the Ursa’s lens port. The LA16x8BRM is smaller and lighter than comparable 4K B4 lenses without compromising maintained focus throughout the zoom range of ease-of-use or quality. The lens has a maximum relative aperture of f/1.9 at 8mm and 2.8 and 128mm.
Compact Handheld Design. The URSA Mini Broadcast maintains the form factor of other URSA Mini cameras. The optional Blackmagic Design Shoulder Mount Kit and URSAViewfinder make the camera even more versatile, allowing you to swap it from hand-held shooting to over-the-shoulder to a tripod with ease.
Touchscreen Controls. Despite its reduced size, the URSAMini Pro comes equipped with a five-inch folding monitor. Its touchscreen interface allows access to all menu functions, eliminating the hassle of menu-diving.

We include one Anton Bauer Titon 90 Gold Mount battery and one Anton Bauer Twin 60 Charger. If you need additional batteries and chargers, you can rent them by following the above links.
