Exactly the same situation. There are Ursa mini 4k or 4,6k, the RED Raven or FS5...but now the Terra 5K (global shutter is great) and I live in Switzerland, so I have a dealer in Germany
I think It will be my first cine camera
I have a question about C500 and external recorder. I have tried to use an Atomos Shogun to record 4K RAW from C500, but the shogun only convert the RAW to ProRes. Have you a solution to record RAW on the Shogun ?
