Retaining the familiar form factor of the original URSA Mini, Blackmagic Design's URSA Mini Pro 4.6K Digital Cinema Camera brings expanded control set and increased functionality. The most noticeable difference is the addition of external camera controls. No longer will menus have to be accessed to change exposure settings, activate slow/fast motion, or engage focus assist or other functions. The exterior of the camera also gains a monochrome LCD panel which displays essential shooting data at a glance. Another welcome pro feature is the implementation of built-in ND (neutral density) filters. The four-position wheel switches between two, four, and six stops of neutral density, plus a clear filter for no exposure reduction. Behind the display, two SD card slots have materialized beside the CFast 2.0 slots, enabling more affordable media to be used for less intensive recording formats. The default electronic EF lens mount is user-interchangeable and adjustable to ensure proper flange-focal distance.

That being said, if you've done a bit of research you probably know this camera isn't for everyone. It's heavy and it's meant to be on a rig. If you're doing a lot of handheld work, this probably isn't the best camera for you. However, if you're looking for the best possible image quality, you're not going to beat the UMP and its codec choice. I shoot mainly documentary style footage and after spending some time working with the ProRes 444 at the incredibly high bit rate, I can't speak highly enough of the image that comes out of this camera. The menu system is a pleasure to work with, and I have to say, working with cameras of all brands, this is my favorite menu system by far.
Another big selling point for me was the 15 stops of dynamic range and the built-in ND filters. Being able to shoot towards windows and leave with a nicely exposed, beautiful image is something that can't be understated. After many years of using screw-on lens ND filters, the built-in filter wheel feels like a true luxury as well.
Something I would definitely recommend is buying third party CFast cards or investing in a CFast to SSD adapter to save you money in the long run. It's also important to note that this price tag is only for the body and you will probably need quite a few accessories if this is your first step into the cinema world.
Taking into account the extra money you may spend and it's weight, the pros far outweigh the cons for the type of shooting I do. If out-of-camera codec isn't as important to you however, I would suggest looking into the Canon C200 or the very versatile Panasonic GH5. I wouldn't personally recommend any of the Sony mirrorless cams for video because of the very heavy rolling shutter, which was a big deal breaker for me.
In terms of post-production, I have been using Adobe Premiere for over a decade but after getting a copy of Resolve Studio and seeing it's performance, I'm hooked. For those of you who are planning on using Premiere regardless of this, it should be noted that as of August 2017, Adobe still does not support the 3:1 and 4:1 RAW video the UMP shoots. It does support the uncompressed RAW files, but at 500MB/s, your cards are going to fill up quick.
All in all, I love my Ursa Mini Pro!
This camera has a lot of potential, just have to find one with a clean sensor.
