I don't know how I feel about this. As an editor, you shouldn't have to concern yourself with coloring. If an editor makes these changes are they going to transfer as metadata into a color program? Will it play nice with resolve or scratch? When it is changing the "original", is it the source file? Seems like a good tool for projects with a quick turnaround, that need a fast polish, that's about it.
After reading the comments I have this to say: I used the URSA within weeks of it's release and it was not ready. I feel that Blackmagic cameras are Beta releases and they fix things somewhere between 60 and 90 days. The URSA mini is not even a consideration until it is shipping.
I am also not sold on the notion of shooting 4k. It will be years before that is a standard for viewing. There are lots of instances where shooting 4k is justified/beneficial, but I don't think that it's wise without the budget to support it (storage costs, redundant back-ups, a dedicated data manager). Log vs Raw is not a big deal in terms of color, unless the DP is really bad and/or the colorist is good.
Lastly, neither camera is suitable to use without an EVF, so factor that into your costs if you are seriously considering these as options.
Cooke's 15-40 S4 zoom is 7.9 lbs. So I would guess between 8.5 and 9 lbs
I don't think so man, somebody still needs to turn the wheel. Plus, it has to be set up properly, calibrated from time to time, it probably will have problems with some set ups and in the end it's easier to just have a 1st that knows his/her distances.
