Blackmagic just introduced their first 12K video camera, the URSA Mini Pro 12 that will retail for an eye-watering $9,995.
The camera is a significant upgrade from the Ursa Mini Pro now available on the market, which shoots at 4.6K.
The Ursa Mini Pro 12 can shoot up to 60 fps in 12K, 110 fps at 8K and 220 fps at 4K.
What can you use it with?
“URSA Mini Pro 12K features an interchangeable PL mount, as well as built in ND filters, dual CFast and UHS-II SD card recorders, a SuperSpeed USB-C expansion port and more,” says Blackmagic.
While there aren’t any 12K TVs sitting around people’s living rooms waiting for content in that resolution (4K is finally getting traction), content creators will be able to get cleaner, crisper video by downsampling to 4K or 8K.
They can also simply crop in post-prod without resolution loss.
The URSA Mini Pro 12 also has built-in compression to let creators store 4K, 6K and 8K versions for instant export on 2.5inch SSDs.
Moreover, it comes with the full version of DaVinci Resolve Studio, Black Magic’s own video editing and post-processing software capable of editing in 12K.
