For this reason, URSA Mini Pro models have an interchangeable mount that allows you to shoot with a PL mount and replace it with another with a common photographic lens if it is necessary to shoot high-end feature films. In this way, it is possible to quickly switch between EF, PL, B4 and F versions, which provides compatibility with a wide variety of professional lenses. In this sense, it allows the use of models used in the field of photography, cinematography or live broadcasts. The URSA Mini Pro model includes an EF mount, but it is possible to purchase F, PL or B4 versions separately. This provides great flexibility to choose the professional lens that best suits the needs of each project.
Easy Transmission Controls
Modify settings quickly without taking your camera off your shoulder.
Like the best cameras on the market, the URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 model includes independent controls that allow direct access to the most important settings.
