New Blackmagic URSA 4K Footage and Review

Blackmagic-URSA-PL 4k shooters

Back in August we saw the first official footage from the Blackmagic URSA shot by John Brawley, and then earlier in September we had another URSA 4K sample footage shot by Captain Hook. Now we’re treated with another URSA 4K footage, this time by a very happy owner NYC DP & Director Guy Fiorita.

Note on the video from Guy:

I was lucky enough to get one of the first Blackmagic Ursa’s and I spent some time testing it over the weekend in Brooklyn and Manhattan. All the footage is 4k 60p ProresHQ conformed to 24p. Most of the stuff is shot at 400 ASA with a few shots at 200 ASA. I wanted to see what I could get away with in challenging lighting and the camera held up really well.

Shutter angle at 180 degrees with the exception of the skate park stuff which was shot at 90.
