  1. I am with you there, the less I can have on my rig the better. Regarding the SSD to CFast Kingston drives I tried seemed to be inconsistent but every Samsung drive I used was rock solid with no dropped frames I tried an 840 & 850 and had no issues. When the Kingston KC400 actually read in the reader it was also rock solid but I didn't use it much since it was so inconsistent. Honestly I think it was more the readers fault than the camera, I have seen others doing a cheaper DIY version of that reader and it working out for them. The reader is powered off the cameras battery p
  2. Yup very true, which is why I choose to use the long Kessler kwik release plates is nearly the length of the front 1/4"-20 to the rear 1/4"-20 so it makes balancing much easier
  3. Used BMs shoulder kit, its IMHO not very good, its great that it has VCT compatibility but it is not ever well balanced or comfortable thanks to the length of the arm for the cameras grip. We use Kessler's Kwik release plates for everything and I prefer it over VCT with the cameras we have now VCT does not make sense as a whole. That was mainly why I pointed it out because not everyone will want to use VCT nor is it always a good choice since the plates need to be so large.
  4. If you watched the whole video you would know i did end up just using standard 2.5 inch SSDs
  5. Relevant Information YES I am aware that Blackmagic has since Monday released a new 4.0 BETA firmware for the Ursa Mini 4.6K, but since I sent the camera back before this was out I made this video using firmware 3.3. The new firmware does add A LOT of awesome features including quicker access to controls, so thumbs up to Blackmagic for getting that rolled out. Camera Body I/O aside the Blackmagic had a few quirks that I will mention here for anyone considering on purchasing an Ursa Mini 4.6K. The first is that all the threaded mounting points on the camera are sized for ¼”-2
  6. Sorry I should have clarified in the video. It is in the second graphic that shows the lens circle you can see that what actually happens is the light that enters the lens (which is a full frame circle size) is focused on to the smaller sensor of my Blackmagic Camera (which is 16mm in size) so while yes it focuses more light onto a smaller place, the light still covers the entire sensor within my blackmagic. Hope that helps
  7. I am glad you found that unboxing perfect because I did shoot that just the other day with the new set-up I fashioned together That unboxing is the first of a new batch that should be much better :) Look out for our Func MS-3 commercial coming soon that is more my element and should be rather enjoyable
  8. Thanks for the kind words guys. I made a bad call on my 1st day of shooting unboxings to use the FS700 on a Monopod that didn't have tripod feet and we shot in blazing sunny weather with no monitor outside of the one on the camera suffice to say it was kind of hard to tell if I was as perfectly steady as I usually would be using say a DSLR which is what I am used too. I had also only just learned the cameras layout so all these things together = not a great batch of videos. But I've been working out a way to improve that and hopefully it works with the next bunch of unboxings. Keep your eyes
