I've Been Saving for the Ursa Mini 4.6k Pro.

Was this sale successful? Did you get the Ursa, and if so what do you think? 

I too was looking at the Ursa Mini Pro 4.6k but quite honestly I wasn't all that impressed with it's image, or at least what I see online viewing it on my 55" 4k TV. To me, the footage looks soft, blocky, less filmic, but I'm not sure how much of that is YouTube compression. 

Despite the obvious drawbacks to no RAW video and 4.2.0 8bit color space, I personally feel the NX1 produces a better overall image, closer to say a RED, (which is why they pair so well) and definitely in how much detail the NX1 resolves. Than again, the NX1 is in a class of it's own when it comes to that. Some find it offputting. 

I'm not saying the Ursa doesn't have it's strengths. It is afterall a proper broadcast-ready video camera. It's also one on a small list of cameras, along with your usual suspects, (no the GH5 isn't on the current list) that Netflix would incept as per their broadcast requirements.

One thing to keep in mind if you don't already own one is that even though it's dubbed as "mini", there's nothing mini about it. The newer REDs have a smaller footprint for reference. No more handheld 3 axis gimbals for you and you better get a very sturdy tripod.   


Also, I don't know your needs or requirements but I'm seeing a lot of regret from those that got rid of their NX1s. Its ultimately what keeps me using a discontinued product. The image is very workable if you understsnd all the basics and best practices of film.

Something else to consider.

      Hi everyone, first of all I am based in France and I can ship anywhere in the EU.
      I am one of the earliest adopters of the Samsung NX1 in France, I remember ordering one the day Andrew posted his first video with the NX1. I then went to get an NX500 when it came out too. This has been my primary system since then so it will have signs of wear as I have used it a lot. And I can also state that this thing works flawlessly. It is amazing, I have played with almost every other camera out there and nothing gives as much pleasure as this one. That being said it it now time for me to part with it so here it is :
      Pictures : https://ibb.co/album/detwva
      Cameras  :
      Samsung NX1 + 2 batteries 
      Samsung NX500 + 3 batteries
      Lenses :
      Samsung :
      20mm F2.8 (perfect for gimbal work)
      45mm F1.8 (so light and fast !)
      85mm F1.4 (my favorite for portrait work)
      16-50mm S F2-2.8 (the best all rounder lens I have used !)
      50-200mm F4-5.6 (not my favorite, but useful and super light)
      Lensbaby :
      56mm F1.6 Macro Lensbaby Velvet 56 (it's a full manual lens with an amazing creamy / dreamy feeling when completely open. Past F4 it starts to be very sharp. It's also a great macro lens !)
      Accessories :
      External NX battery charger.
      M mount adaptor : This thing is insane : you can mount Leica M lenses on the Samsung NX1. It's crazy.
      Ok so now the price : This is about 5.000€ worth of equipment when I bought it. I am selling for 2000€ (not negociating).
      I have not considered yet breaking appart the lot but maybe I will, so if you are interested in several items please let me know. If it's just for one lens, I will probably won't do it sorry

      - PRICE: $599
      - STRETCH: 2X
      - FOCUS: Double-focus
      - PAYMENT METHOD: Paypal (fees to be paid after initial payment)
      - LOCATION: Switzerland
      - SHIPPING: Not included
      - INCLUDED: Redstan rear adapter with foot support and Redstan front clamp (value = $100).
      - CONDITION: No scratches and no fungus. Clean glass with the exception of a couple tiny spots on the rear glass. A couple of VERY light scratches that are only noticeable under a light source. Body shows some signs of wear but it works perfectly. Coatings are not flamboyant but the lens creates these signature purple/orange flares perfectly well. I wasn't able to get 1000% tack sharp images, so the lens might need to be serviced. It gives reasonably sharp results though, and my issue might actually come from my taking lens. Bought it from a fellow member of the Anamorphic Shooters group on FB and barely used it because of a decrease in filmmaking activity.
      - COMMENTS: I can send some footage via wetransfer. Open to offers.
