If your project calls for a lot of over the shoulder or handheld shooting, you’ll want to add the Blackmagic Design URSA Viewfinder.

You get a high resolution 1920 x 1080 colour display that lets you get incredibly accurate focus and the screen is so sharp that it’s impossible to see any individual pixels so it’s just like using an optical viewfinder on a traditional film camera.

The viewfinder can be adjusted for either left or right eye use. Simply plug it into the power and SDI viewfinder output, slide it onto the camera using the Shoulder Mount Kit, then start shooting! The viewfinder features a sensor that turns off the screen when you’re not using it to save power and extend the life of the OLED screen.

  • Overview
  • Specs

The Blackmagic Design URSA Viewfinder is designed specifically for use with the URSA and URSA mini digital film cameras. It features a high-resolution 1920 x 1080 colour OLED display, precision glass optics, and an adjustable diopter to fine tune to your vision. It also has a built-in digital focus chart to help when focusing on your subjects. To boost the longevity of the OLED screen, the viewfinder uses a built-in sensor that only turns the screen on when you're looking through it. It screws directly onto the top of your URSA camera and is adjustable, so it can be used with the left or right eye.

Note: Blackmagic URSA Mini Shoulder kit is required for mounting the URSA Viewfinder on URSA Mini, URSA Mini Pro, or URSA Broadcast.
