Last Thursday, we were given the chance to loan two Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4K’s from the company itself. With weddings on Friday and Saturday, we could immediately take them out for a proper battle test. And let me tell you: the Ursa Mini does not disappoint! It got us even more excited about the upcoming release of the 4.6K version.
Most of the footage was shot in Prores HQ (which looks amazing – even more so than the BMCC), Full HD, 60fps. We used all sorts of lenses: Canon 24-70 2.8L, 50mm 1.2L, 100mm 2.8L IS, 17-55 2.8 IS and the Sigma 18-35 1.8. Please note that while the firmware we had on the Ursa Mini was as close to the final firmware as possible, but was still in beta nonetheless.
A full review where I comment on every question you have asked me will be up soon and will be posted to our Facebook page (facebook.com/thedreamersnl). Stay tuned!
