@Randomfrankp Would you still recommend this Frank? Ive been looking for a high end filming camera for starting a YouTube channel, for mainly just YouTube content like yours, doing reactions and reviews, and gameplay, what do you think????
Elmer Cuaton (2 years ago)
Is this good in lowlight condition like sony A7sII?
SMY PMC (2 years ago)
Elmer Cuaton no. This is not a low light camera. It is for something else that A7s isn't for.

u should have got the 4.6k. Not just resolution its better at.
Jaime Roma (2 years ago)
hello, i like you your video, I wanted to ask how the sigma 18-35mm art works in Ursa mini, thanks.
Frederic Karlo (3 years ago)
The low light quality makes this camera unusable for evening events. Realistically you'll never carry or find enough lights to properly expose. I'd go with the 2K cheaper BMCC or even a 5D Mark lll

+Bobster986 Did you not watch the video?
Brandon Smith (3 years ago)
Hey, do you have any plans to go more in-depth with the workflow that you have established since December? I recently just purchased this camera for my job and the workflow seems a lot more bulky and slower than I used to with the standard Sony camcorder. Auto white balance seems to be missing, even if only just for setting the initial color temperature. There doesn't seem to be any intuitive touch screen features that allow you to make adjustments on the fly while still viewing the preview monitor versus entering the menu. I would love to know more about the mechanics on what makes this camera truly great and how to best utilize its features.as far as I have seen on the Internet there is not much out there.

+randomfrankp Well done. I would so love to get my hands on one. I've been progressing really well with Resolve. Any thoughts where I might download a small clip to grade from the URSA mini at 12bit DNG?

If you record in 1080p please render it in 4k and upload in 4k.
Govicarious (3 years ago)
I like you, and I like this channel. But...This is not the right camera for this channel and its content. It will be interesting to watch how it all plays out. I would suggest an A7sII. ONE of the problems with the Ursa Mini is that, its not a low light camera. And will require lots of light all the time. Otherwise things are going to get grainy and have FPN. Plus work flow will be a PIA working with AND storing the unnecessarily large files that come from this camera. Especially for online or just YouTube content. This is not the right camera. I understand you'd like to "up your game" in quality but the A7sII with its 4K and INCREDIBLE low light capabilities would have more than done the job here, and for a lot cheaper. Also the HDD you'll need to back up and/or archive the footage, if you wanted to, will get ridiculous real fast. There are many many more reasons but I wont get into those. Enjoy your new camera. :)
Krafko (3 years ago)
But he does stuff for other companies, he doesnt do just youtuvbe
Rob Cartwright (3 years ago)
+GoVicarious Put some good glass on it and it's fine.
The Dead Immortal (3 years ago)
+GoVicarious Isn't the A7sII like around $3000 body only That's like basically the same price as the Ursa Mini But then again, if they ARE the same price, the Sony would've been a much better choice I too think that the Ursa Mini was a bit of a mega overkill, to say the least lmao

mkay dmkay (3 years ago)
I was a bit confused to why one would spend almost 5k on a camera when videos are already crispy? why not invest in other products that you can make reviews for? or something different? also is that camera tripod attachable? its really big so yeah idk if tripods support that size. and lastly is the built in microphone good enough to replace the other microphone you use normally or will you still be using an external microphone? again awesome review and can't wait for the new camera to get rolling! #crispyfrank
AirsoftWarfareHD (3 years ago)
@The Dead Immortal I know, I had a Blackmagic Camera myself. MKBHD is a tech channel and his grading style is a very clean vibrant theme. But he has one of the best in that regard. 
The Dead Immortal (3 years ago)
@AirsoftWarfareHD Trust me when I say this: the camera is only half the work for why his work looks so cinematic. I've seen better footage cinematic wise come out of the GH4 in somebody's capable hands than Marques' work. The camera has very little to do with somebody's work looking great.
AirsoftWarfareHD (3 years ago)
@The Dead Immortal It is unnecessary for sure. But because he has that camera his videos look really cinematic. 
The Dead Immortal (3 years ago)
+AirsoftWarfareHD MKBHD stated a few times that his camera is completely overkill, and to not do what he did since the RED for youtube is completely unnecessary and to go for something much, MUCH cheaper
AirsoftWarfareHD (3 years ago)
Look at MKBHD or Jonathan Morisson. They both have cinema camera that cost even more then this. You gotta invest a lot to get back a lot. YouTube is a different ball game now, you aren't gonna get to the top by using some canon DSLR anymore

MrAlexander137 (3 years ago)
Is the casing plastic? Also at $2,995 I would have thought you'd get a power lead and a screen that rotates 180 degrees. You might as well have gone for a cheaper 4K Camera and linked a display too it since your not doing any moving videos ie.vlogs.
Yudi Govender (1 year ago)

Seriously doubt that anyone will be able to tell difference between videos shot with the new camera and your old one. Hope the workflow is better otherwise you wasted a few grand on this.
randomfrankp (3 years ago)
+Bullion Head LMAO later man, seriously hope your life gets better than it is.
cee128d (3 years ago)
+randomfrankp Then it may be worth it, but definitely not just for this channel. I haven't watched all of you videos so I never saw that, but I can understand that aspect of it. But my statement still stands as far as this channel goes.
cee128d (3 years ago)
+Bullion Head How is that rude? Sorry, but I don't see it. You don't seem to have a substantial grip on reality if you ask me, or are one of those "don't do anything to lower someone's self worth" people who are undermining the youth of today..
randomfrankp (3 years ago)
@Bullion Head LOL. Yeah, I buy subs. I guess I also bought my 16 million views as well? Did I buy your original sub to my channel? Didnt thinks so. Daaaammmmnnnnn son you're bitter. 
randomfrankp (3 years ago)
@cee128d I've mentioned this in other videos as well, but I do many things besides YouTube. I do external videography work for companies and this upgrade is far worth it in my opinion!

The Dead Immortal (3 years ago)
+randomfrankp Can we see any of your other works for companies like LG and stuff?
Ronald Huyskens (3 years ago)
+randomfrankp i can confirm that there is no black hole sun spot on this sensor! And the fixed pattern noise can't be fixed over updates. Its still there.. Its the sensor not the software. I'm gonna be using iT for commercial work. Been shooting with the other blackmagic camera's for quite a while now. Would just use a gh4 for the simple yt vids. No Kelvin settings no professional grading :) but commercial work gonna be great with this cam!
Leo Corvo (3 years ago)
+randomfrankp wow nice! thanks for answers! I'm now waiting for some sample footage ;)
randomfrankp (3 years ago)
+Leo Corvo The 4.6k version is $5,000 itself, which is more than I spent for everything here combined. I didnt have the need to drop around $8k if I went for the upgraded sensor, and some of the things people complained about like the black hole sun and vertical noise pattern have either been fixed in a firmware update or will be fixed soon. And for my usage, using this in low light isnt really an issue since I use proper lighting. I do reviews for other companies that aren't related to my channel. I've worked with LG, Braun, Philips, just to name a few! And I will be picking up a wide angle Rokinon lens pretty soon!
Leo Corvo (3 years ago)
+randomfrankp ahhhh ok! now I do understand! i'm curious, what kind of work do you do for companies? another question: why not the 4.6k version that has got better performance and fixed some issues of the old 4k blackmagic sensor? for "just" 2000$ more It could be worth... ps: someone in the comments suggest you to buy rokinon lenses, I have 3 of them and they're awsome, expecially for the price!

+Mike Thomson OMG LMAO. Manual means you have to die everything in yourself. Like you have to set your focus, set your white balance, set your exposure and set your shutter speed and then you have to get all those settings right so the image isn't to over exposed or under exposed.

Frank- That little USB key is a dongle aka license. You need it plugged in to your comp in order to launch Resolve 12 Studio. Don't lose it. It's basically worth $900 (the cost of Resolve Studio).
