Sony FS5 vs Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6k (Best $6000 camera?)
I am looking at getting a new camera right around the $6k range. I have sort of narrowed it down to 2 options and would like some opinions or other better options. The two options I have narrowed down to are the Sony FS5 and the Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6k. This would be mainly for commercial and corporate work. However, I am also looking at filming concerts (both performances and backstage), events (like weddings), and other promo videos and what not.
I kind of have a pros and cons list of each going that I will share a few of the top things, but still just can't decide.
Sony FS5: Love the size and feel of it, battery life, better at low light.
Don't love the complicated menus.
Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6k: Love the images it puts out (so cinematic and can be graded nicely - but also has video mode), love the menu simplicity and accessibility (more so in the new os upgrade).
Don't love how it's not great in low light AKA not as run and gun as some of the situations I'll need.
Those are clearly just a couple of my thoughts. I have never used either, but I've used sony f5, f55, fs7, fs100, bmpcc, bmcc2.5k, bmcc4k, and others - so I have experience with the general feel of both the cameras. I'm just looking in this price range for a camera I can own to start getting more jobs (I'm jumping up from just owning a Canon t3i and using my schools equipment and renting stuff).
Any opinion or other suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks guys!
