Not that I disagree about wanting / needing Timewarp within Premiere, since the tools within Premiere are terrible, but since when is After Effects considered a "grading" app? It's a vfx and motion graphics app. Resolve is a grading app.
Nuke and Fusion are comparable programs. I know more professionals who use Nuke personally, but plenty use both.
Love the potential here.
This is going to make more sense for budget doc filmmakers who might also be considering a C100. The low budget indie narrative set have shifted their focus to different types of cameras, and I'm sure Panasonic knows this.
Once you add the required accessories to make the Ursa Mini as fully capable as this is out of the box, it's going to be just as expensive if not more. Also, a lot of doc filmmakers are going to find the built-in lens and ND filters very appealing.
I just did a shoot with a Shogun. For the life of me I cannot understand why they went with a glossy screen. It rendered the thing completely worthless as a monitor half the time.
