Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 12K Gets Some Tasty New Frame Rates Before Its Release

Camera Setup 7.0 will make slo-mo shooters smile. 

When Blackmagic released the URSA Mini Pro 12K, it turned a lot of heads. The 12K Super 35 sensor is built for RAW recording workflows and is aimed at high-end features and projects. On the heels of its official shipping date, Blackmagic has improved its capabilities with some glorious new frame rates.

Camera Setup 7.0 only affects the URSA Mini Pro 12K, so if you have a preproduction model, this update is definitely worth downloading. Here's what's included: 

Cameras Setup 7.0 

  • Increase 12K 2.4:1 maximum frame rate to 75fps
  • Increase 8K DCI, 16:9 and 6:5 Anamorphic to 120fps
  • Increase 4K DCI, 16:9 and 6:5 Anamorphic to 120fps
  • Increase 8K 2.4:1 and 4K 2.4:1 to 160fps
  • Increase 4K Super 16 to 240fps
  • Adds Blackmagic RAW stills capture support
  • Adds broadcast lens connector support

Those are some tasty new frame fates. The 4K Super 16 at 240fps. Butter. 4K 2.4:1 at 160fps. Butter. 8K DCI at 120fps. Butter. We can't wait to get our hands on this camera to test out. The new color science will be interesting to dive into as well as the amount of computing power to push the image at its highest output. It's also nice Blackmagic added RAW still support which will come in handy when designing a look or LUT during preproduction. 

Camera Setup 7.0 also adds 12K LUT support for Blackmagic's URSA Viewfinder and 12K exposure metering. In Blackmagic RAW 2.0 Beta 2, Windows is now supported.

Additionally, Blackmagic has released SmartView 4.0.5 with some minor updates for its monitors. 

SmartView 4.0.5

  • Support for a new Matte finish display
  • Support for SDI Tally override from ATEM Switchers using Blackmagic Cameras
  • General performance and stability improvements.

The software is available to download via Blackmagic's support page.
