I wanted to follow up my last post on the Ursa Mini 4.6k. I believe that this camera is not getting the recognition it deserves. As a cinematographer, my biggest priority is the image. In my opinion this camera is second only to the Arri Alexa. In fact I have used this camera many times as a B cam with an Alexa as my A cam. I challenge anyone to tell me which was which after the footage has been corrected. The camera has been flawless, yes there are some things I would like to see incorporated much of which can be added with firmware updates. But at $5495 for the PL version it’s beyond amazing value. I really don’t understand why more people have not embraced this camera, they don’t know what they are missing and if they are spending more money on anything other than an Alexa they are wasting money.
In my next post I will address the plusses and minuses, but you will see the plusses far outweigh the minuses.
