Re: BlackMagic - URSA Mini

Random thoughts.

... and if this "Mega Cam" were to hit the stores without any build-up announcement or fanfare, and then the Ursa ends up further delayed and even worse, missing some advertised feature, it's possible the Mini could be still born.

But odds of this are slim as I can't recall any past model that experienced a premature release.

Rumors of what was coming after have been swirling for months already. There are a lot of people using "the next best thing" as an excuse to not shoot with what they already have available, mostly because what they have now doesn't include a talent button, and developing one's own talent takes effort and dedication. It's easier to blame the gear.

There are several companies, including Black Magic and Red, who are counting on the obsession with specs to keep selling cameras.

In a way, that (and I'm going to regret saying this) happened with the Red Raven. Of course it's quite a different price point, but Red has, at least recently, not a bad track record of delivering on time, as opposed to BM being half a year late on a good year.

Of course... we couldn't possibly talk about waiting for a dream camera that you wait years for without bringing up the "3k for $3k" slogan. ;)
