    Sorry DP, the Ursa Mini has a 4-pin XLR power input you can connect a host of large external batteries to it. I run an small 12-volt battery (think small battery used in UPS units) to power my Ursa Broadcast for filming events, and a Gold Mount battery on the back as a backup.
    I didn't even realize. That's just another plus for the URSA.

    But that means that is also a power solution that, as the other said: "requires some form of external rigging".
    Cameras: Blackmagic Cinema Camera, Blackmagic Pocket Camera (x2), Panasonic GH2 (x2), Sony RX100 ii, Canon 6D, Canon T2i,
    Mics: Sennheiser, AKG, Shure, Sanken, Audio-Technica, Audix
    Lights: Every Chinese clone you can imagine

      This is exactly what happens, when you lock the battery inside a unit, which is why DSLR style body sucks as a design. And also does not really allow for adding ND filters. DSLR from the beginning were workaround of a workaround. And instance of maintaining this form factor is the key to continuing of this silly methodology.
