Between the codec, frame rates, resolution, and form factor I'd say the BMUM is an easy win over say a GH4 + Rails + Speedbooster sans RAW or ProRes. I agree the old sensor has some issues that need to be addressed (black hole sun) but honestly I'd take that over having to carry "Transformers: Rise of the Rig" everywhere.
Yea but for half the cost you can get the Ursa Mini with the 4k sensor. Honestly with the savings I'd rather slap a Variable ND on the lens and keep it pushing.
I'm happy to see the move back to usuable form factors when it comes to "indie" film cameras. The DSLR rig sensation was getting ridiculous. I bought a GH4 for $1600 but needed an additional $1500 in gear to really get it going for production use. When you really look at it you could buy an Ursa Mini kit for the same as a kit'd out DSLR but be ready to shoot right out of the box.
Meh. Honestly most of the people producing content these days don't need 8K. Does anybody really need 8k? For the maybe couple thousand people who do ...congrats?
It's like a group of accountants escaped Canon and are hell bent on bringing thier former employers to justice lol... If it is indeed that cheap that would be b-a-n-a-n-a-s!
I wonder what they'll sell the Ursa Mini for? 8K?
