Blackmagic Design today announced Blackmagic URSA Mini, a compact and lightweight Super 35 digital film camera that looks to bring all the greatness found in the original URSA in a size that is far more convenient for all-day use, as the original URSA is quite large and heavy. URSA Mini features the same new 4.6K image sensor that was just announced for the full size-URSA, switchable global or rolling shutter, up to 15 stops of dynamic range, a large 5 inch fold out viewfinder and dual RAW and Apple ProRes recorders.

Blackmagic URSA Mini is available in 4 models, customers can choose either EF or PL lens mounts and 4K or 4.6K image sensors. Prices for the Blackmagic URSA Mini start at $2,995 for the 4K EF model.

Rumor: Sony Fires Back Against Panasonic, Will Release a 4K-Capable RX20 in Mid-October

 Gear, News  Comments Off on Rumor: Sony Fires Back Against Panasonic, Will Release a 4K-Capable RX20 in Mid-October

When the Panasonic FZ-1000 was announced, it was obvious to everybody that Panasonic was going for the Sony RX20′s jugular… metaphorically speaking. It was cheaper, could shoot 4K and had a longer (albeit darker) lens.

Well, it seems Sony is ready to fight back, and soon, with a 4K-capable RX20.

The rumor broke over on Sony Alpha Rumors, who was told by an anonymous source that the RX20 would use the same 20.1MP sensor and 24-200mm f/2.8 lens as the RX10, but feature 4K video, 120fps capability at 720p and the ability to shoot the XAVC-S codec.

According to this source, the camera will be announced in mid-October for $1,300 USD — what the RX10 originally cost before the price dropped to $1,000 post-Panasonic FZ-1000 release — while the original RX10 will remain on the market after an additional $100-$200 price drop.
