I have some information on a new 4K CMOS sensor which may or may not be announced at NAB in a future Blackmagic camera.
Thanks to Norbert Bielan in New York for this test footage. You can read his thoughts on shooting with the URSA below.
Blackmagic’s latest unified firmware release is mainly about the URSA and what an update it is. The new firmware bumps the maximum frame rate up to 80fps in 4K and adds a new 3:1 compression setting for raw recording, fitting more material onto CFast cards.
The URSA also makes an interesting back-end for your existing 4K HDMI camera such as the Sony A7S. Has anybody actually tried this combination yet?
