Something else I just noticed... It doesn't look like you can adjust the audio levels unless the screen is open. That could be a real problem in the real world. Hope I'm wrong about that.
I agree with all of the above. Easy access to recording functions while shooting should be a top priority. Canon got this right with the C100. You can change ISO, shutter speed, f-stop and white balance without ever taking your eye away from what you're shooting. All those functions are accessed via the thumb joystick on the handgrip. Strangely, it's set up a little differently on the C300. You can access all those but white balance. You have to find the white balance button on the camera body before changing the value with the joystick. Not a fan of thouch screens either. For me, the screen is for monitoring and if you touch it, you smudge it. Not optimal.
I've been shooting professionally for more than 20 years now. Lately, the bulk of my work has been EPK/Behind the Scenes video for major motion pictures and television series.
This camera is so close to being perfect for my style of shooting, except for the glaring omission of built-in neutral density filters.
I've read the posts from others trying to shout down people like me who view built-in filters as not a luxury, but a necessity. I'm fully aware that adding a matte box and a set of glass filters is one possible solution, but if I take the time to remove the filter frame from the matte box, remove the glass filter from its frame, replace the glass filter into its pouch, remove another glass filter from its pouch, insert that glass filter into the frame, then replace the frame back into the matte box... I've missed the shot.
Grant Petty's explanation of why Blackmagic decided not to implement built-in filters into the Ursa Mini doesn't wash. Canon's C100, C300 and C500 have built-in filters, as does Sony's FS700 and FS7. None of them have massive housings to accommodate a filter wheel for their super-35 sized chips. (I'm sure there are others that I've forgotten.)
Still... I really like the form factor of this camera. Canon should take note--this is how to design a camera. Well done, Blackmagic! It's so close to perfect, I may have to pull the trigger.
