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.
