Blackmagic URSA Studio Viewfinder

Turn your URSA Mini into the ultimate live production camera!

Blackmagic URSA Studio Viewfinder

You can turn any model of URSA Mini into a professional live production camera by adding the URSA Studio Viewfinder! Unlike traditional studio cameras which are based on simple video imaging technology, URSA Mini Pro and URSA Mini are true digital film cameras combined with full professional studio camera features. You get talkback, tally and remote camera control, plus you can add the amazing Blackmagic URSA Studio Viewfinder to get a professional studio camera user interface. The studio viewfinder features a bright 7” screen that features a large easily viewable tally light, control knobs, large easy grip handles, sun shade, variable tension articulated mount and more!

In the Studio or On Location

Comfortably work for hours on long events!

Operating a camera at live concerts, sports, and other long events is hard if you have to look through a traditional eyepiece for hours on end! The URSA Studio Viewfinder has a large bright display with large handles and external controls that make it easy to stand behind the camera and comfortably follow the action for extended periods of time. The URSA Studio Viewfinder features integrated dials and buttons that let you adjust settings without having to take your eyes off of the action, plus it includes tally lights and drop in acetate numbers so it’s always easy to identify which camera is live!

Designed for Live Production

Easy to position, adjust and control while live on air!

Designed for professional live production, the URSA Studio Viewfinder features large handles and variable tension articulated mounting that allow you to adjust the position and angle of the viewfinder without moving the camera. It connects directly to the SDI and power outputs on your URSA Mini Pro, making installation simple. The large 7" screen includes a detachable sunshade so you can use it day or night, and the control dials and customizable function buttons let you make adjustments on the fly so you don’t have to touch the screen or look away!

Control at Your Fingertips

Never take your eyes off of the action!

The URSA Studio Viewfinder features control dials and function buttons that allow you to quickly display critical framing and focus overlays, change settings and more! A menu dial allows you to fly through options and also dial in which part of the picture is magnified so you can check detail and focus. You can also adjust the viewfinder’s brightness, contrast and focus peaking using the dedicated knobs on the right side of the screen. Plus, there are three customizable buttons that can be used to display zebra, false color, edge focus detection, luminance waveform, custom LUTs and more right at your fingertips!
