  • Ursa Mini Pro G2 - 1080i50

    The Ursa Mini series is a very versatile camera and after almost 4 years of extensive use of my UM 4.6K EF I ordered the G2 a few days ago.
    Most of my work is documentary and corporate work, shot at a project frame rate of 25P, but from time to time TV stations wanna have interlaced material.
    With my UM 4.6K EF I always had to tell them, I can record 50P and you do the rest in editing.

    Now I'm a bit confused, because at the Blackmagic site I find under the topic "standards" 1080i50.

    But that does not mean I can record interlaced on my Cfast cards (I wished that so much), but I could record it externally, right?

    Correct, the Ursa cameras can output interlaced HD standards via SDI, but not record it internally.

        Christian, funny thing is the URSA Broadcast is capable of recording interlaced DNxHD. I don't know why BMD isn't offering a choice on all of their cameras. Maybe they have to pay for DNxHD license to Avid, so they avoid those extra costs when not necessary.
        When delivering to ORF I shoot in 50p and convert that to their beloved XDCAM HD 1080i format afterwards.
