I just picked up my new Blackmagic URSA Mini 4.6K yesterday, and have already spent a lot of time getting to know the camera and taking some test shots. Right off the bat I’ve been blown away by this camera’s image quality, and I truly can’t get over the amount of useable dynamic range it’s able to produce. I can’t wait to put this thing to use on some real world projects, but for now I’ve gone ahead and compiled a handful of test shots I took this afternoon, and posted them below.
All of the footage you’ll see here was shot in 4:1 Compressed RAW in 4.6K resolution, and was edited & colored in DaVinci Resolve. I also used FilmConvert (without grain) to give the final piece some more polish once the main grade was done.
Talk a look!
Once I have a chance to shoot with this camera in a more controlled environment or on a narrative project, I will be sure to post some more footage right away.
Check back soon for ongoing updates!
