The G2 introduced an updated Super 35 4.6K sensor featuring a claimed 15 stops of dynamic range at 3200 ISO, high frame rate recording up to 300 fps, and additional recording functionality.

External camera controls allowed menus to be accessed to change exposure settings, activate slow/fast motion, or engage focus assist or other functions. The exterior of the camera featured a monochrome LCD panel which displays essential shooting data. The G2 also features a built-in ND (neutral density) filter wheel. The four-position wheel switches between two, four, and six stops of neutral density, plus a clear filter for no exposure reduction.

The G2 also introduced a USB-C expansion port so you can record directly to external drives. The default electronic EF lens mount is user-interchangeable and adjustable to ensure proper flange focal distance.

The G2 has the ability to capture 4.6K footage at 120 fps, 4K DCI at 150 fps, or even 1080p footage at 300 fps.

Like the URSA Mini, the URSA Mini Pro G2 can record high-resolution raw sensor data in Blackmagic RAW format onto CFast 2.0 or SD memory cards at up to 60 fps. The URSA Mini Pro provides compressed raw recording at 3:1 and 4:1 compression ratios to save space while retaining post-production flexibility.

The URSA Mini Pro G2 can also record Apple ProRes files in many different flavors within the 444 and 422 chroma subsampling variations depending on your workflow. The 4.6K, 4K, 3K, 2K, and HD recording resolutions can be captured as ProRes files either using the “Film” dynamic range for a flatter image for grading in post-production, or “Video” dynamic range for a finished look right out of the camera.

You can purchase separately available accessories like the VCT shoulder pad, side handgrip, broadcast battery plate, and an EVF. The shoulder pad is compatible with 15mm LWS rods for mounting lens supports for long lenses, follow focuses, lens drive motors, matte boxes, etc.
