OLPF Ursa mini worth it?

I've heard prores is quite a bit better at handling moire on the Ursa Mini 4.6k. That is something I am fine with if its tolerable in prores. 

I am looking at these OLPF filters from china off ebay. I wonder if one of those can be installed. Are OLPF's very camera specific, anyone know? There are also cheap OLPF filters taken from canon cameras that I could try out. 

I know there are options actually designed for the Ursa Mini but I am putting together a cheap ass rig so I don't want to spend $400 on one, which is like a 4th of what the camera cost me lol

They're sensor specific but you can probably get by without one. If it's anything like the Micro/Pocket, moiré is a lot better in ProRes. If you're going to get one, though, look into the RawLite brand. I believe it has an IR Cut Filter built in, so that alone is worth the extra cost. They'll pop up on eBay once in a while.

I found an IR cut filter from a Chinese company that I think I'll purchase. Hard to go wrong at $35 bucks. Its listed as for the Ursa Mini 4.6k specifically.
