    Man it's a double edged sword. It's nice someone has the camera, but Marco always catches hell whenever he posts stuff.

    I feel bad for you guys. One month from shipping and still no sample footage (other than Hooks in April). That's scary.

    John Brawley posted another photo of the URSA Mini 4.6K:

    It looks like this camera is just gathering dust waiting for the release. Or is that sand all over the camera from a recent shoot?

    Sammy, one of the seven framing choices offered is called 3K and it is designed to be used with a 2x anamorphic lens or adapter. The image is 3072 X 2560 photosites which has an aspect ratio of 6:5 rather than 4:3. The thinking behind this is that when you desqueeze a 4:3 image, it becomes 8:3 or 2.66:1, but anamorphic films are usually about 2.39:1 so you typically crop the sides in post. This is perhaps wasteful. With a 6:5 that desqueezes to 12:5 or 2.4:1, you only crop a few pixels. Other cinema camera manufacturers offer 6:5, such as RED. ARRI seems to still offer 4:3 like a DSLR camera.

    Sammy, with the 1.5x anamorphic lens, you would shoot with any of the 16:9 aspect ratios including the open gate sensor. When you desqueeze that in post, you have an aspect ratio of 2.66:1. So if you wish you crop the sides or reframe to get to a 2.39:1 or 2.4:1 widescreen aspect ratio for your deliverables. Your 2x anamorphic lenses will work perfectly with the 3K anamorphic window of the sensor to desqueeze to 2.4:1. Happy days for you.
