Today Blackmagic introduced a new broadcast camera that tries to bring many features from the cine and broadcast world under one hood. Central idea of the camera is a 6K-S35 sensor ( 6144 x 3456 Sensel, 13 f-stops), which is equipped with an interchangeable mount.
The new Blackmagic URSA Broadcast G2 is the first URSA with a 6K sensor.
Via the B4 mount, the camera can be operated as a 2K/4K broadcast camera, as only a corresponding part of the sensor is used here. Via an included active EF mount, on the other hand, APS-C/S35 lenses can use the full sensor. PL and Nikon F mounts are also available as an option.
There is a wide mount selection.
The sensor and its frame rates are strongly reminiscent of the Pocket 6K camera's sensor. It also has 2 base ISO stops (400 and 3200) and as with the Pro version, there is a built-in three-stop ND filter.
The overall design of the camera is the same as the current URSA Mini generation, so lots of professional connections (including large XLR and 12G SDI jacks) and plenty of external control options.
The URSA Broadcast G2 has two CFast 2.0 and two SD/UHS-II slots each for recording in H.264, H.265, ProRes and Blackmagic RAW. External recording via USB is also possible.
As a studio camera, the G2 can also be integrated into broadcast setups via SDI and synchronized via timecode. External timecode generators like Tentacle Sync can be used to lock the internal timecode.
A new Blackmagic URSA Studio Viewfinder G2 was also introduced, which now features a particularly bright 7-inch 2,000 nit display.
A bright viewfinder was also introduced - URSA Studio Viewfinder G2.
The new URSA Broadcast G2 plus accessories should be available now for 4019 Euro at.
