Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 – $3000 Off For a Limited Time

Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 - $3000 Off For a Limited Time

Last month, we saw a significant discount on the (relatively new) Blackmagic Cinema Camera 6K. That 40% discount shaved off over $1,000 from an amazing cinema camera, making it available for only $1,575. Well, if you missed out or perhaps were not interested in that deal, Blackmagic tempts us again with a bigger and better camera at an even greater discount. At a list price of $5,995, you can now purchase the URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 with an instant $3,000 off, making the final price $2,995 at B&H’s website.

One can most likely chalk up these recent Blackmagic discounts to generate some breathing room for their newer lines of cameras, recently announced at NAB 2024. To move new Pyxis and Ursa Cine 17k cameras, they want to clear the shelves of some of their older models, which is understandable. Whatever the reason, this is a great deal. Let’s take a look at the URSA Mini Pro 4.6k G2.

Flagship model – Blackmagic URSA Mini Pro

Released back in 2021, the URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2 Digital Cinema Camera introduced an updated Super 35 sensor along with 15 stops of dynamic range, 4.6K up to 120 fps/ 1080p up to 300 fps, built-in ND filters, and an interchangeable lens mount. It records Blackmagic RAW or has Apple Prores support in 422 and 444. This and many other highlights make the URSA Mini Pro 4.6k G2 a powerhouse in the cinema camera community.

Here’s a quick rundown of some of the specs:

  • Updated Super 35 4.6K image sensor
  • 4608 x 2592 with 15 stops of dynamic range at 3200 ISO
  • 4.6K images at up to 120 frames per second
  • Windowed 4K DCI at up to 150 frames per second
  • Windowed 1080 HD at 300 frames per second
  • Blackmagic RAW images in both film and extended video modes
  • Raw compression levels up to 12:1
  • USB-C expansion port for recording to external drives

We wrote about the URSA Mini Pro 4.6k G2 when it was first announced and were very impressed with what the camera could do. Of course, we ran it through the lab tests as well and declared it a very good value! It was well worth the money back then and more than worth $3,000 off now!

Keeping in mind that this URSA Mini Pro purchase comes with DaVinci Resolve Studio (a $295 value) priced at $2,995, I really can’t recommend this camera enough. Although, I would suggest the Cinema Camera 6K for $1,575 if you can still swing that deal.

What do you think about this deal? Would you recommend the URSA Mini Pro 4.6K G2, or have you used it in the past? If you have a favorite cinema camera, I’d love to hear what it is.
