    Blackmagic Design is at it again with a 12K camera! That is not a typo. Of course, there are good announcements in the video.

    I am an Avid fan of making the Final Cut on Resolve so the video will not be boring.

    UltraStudio Monitor and Recorder now TB3 and supports Rec2020

    Updated 5” and 7” video assists (monitor/recorder)

    Ursa Mini Pro now a 12K camera using their own sensor design (not Bayer). According to Grant – focused on high-end “film” production and optimized for BMD RAW and Resolve pipeline.

    Sensor is Super 35 with 14 stops. Uses equal number of RGB photosites as opposed to 4-2-2 Bayer design. 12K in order to get good 8K. You can scale (in-camera setting) from 12K to 8K to 4K without cropping sensor. Up to 110fps full sensor at 4K.

    Demoed Multicam of 9 x 12K BRAW streams in Resolve on a 2019 Mac Pro

    New “Generation 5” color science with new film curve optimized for BRAW. Improved skin tones.

    Resolve public beta on site with 12K support.

    Also on-board piggyback recorder for 12K camera. (Blackmagic Ursa Mini Recorder)

    Thanks for the summary; it’s useful to have the key points in one place.

    Also worth noting that Grant said the Ursa serves as their test platform for new technologies, implying that things developed on the Ursa will trickle down to new smaller cameras eventually.

    I’ve just ordered one. I know I will have to wait in line behind ‘high end DP’s’. The only info not given in Grant’s usual daggy dad demo was native ISO.

    And Resolve 16.3 beta is now available. The BRAW developments are pretty amazing and the performance playback on Macs is also impressive. Grant says Metal has helped that.

    Wow, that’s going to be a great camera, congratulations.

    Native ISO is 800 according to John Brawley (who knows, because he’s used it): https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=117834#p648209

    [Brad Hurley] “Native ISO is 800 according to John Brawley”

    Yes I just read that from John B. Same as my old Mini 4.6. The camera will be very low noise and without patterning so I bet it can be pushed to ISO 3200 without issue.

    In relation to FCPX, the significant issue with this camera is also the performance of BRAW. I hope Apple are looking at how BRAW is developing and the petty (see what I did there) RAW wars will not continue. I want to see BRAW and ProResRAW available in FCPX and Resolve

    There is no prores over 4k even prores raw. So i think bmd has the leverage for this one.
