    Seriously. When they are giving them away for free as a bundle.....they've got to just be clearing stock. Stinks because I still really wanted a Big URSA at some point.

    Not quite free, but an URSA 4K for $495! A steal for anyone needing another camera and then you add the 4.6K turret upgrade. Remember when the Pocket camera was $500 and we thought it was the end of the world. If you want the URSA Mini Pro, this is another stunning deal!

    So, you're the guy holding out hope for the 4.6K turret...

    Not going to happen. B&H is having that promotion too. I think it's a worldwide promotion from BM.

    Not sure if I made my point clearly about the BMPCC. We thought the fire sale meant the BMPCC was dead and we were wrong as it continued to sell at $995 after that. You all may be right, but maybe they're just letting dealers clear stock on hand if they have URSA 4K PL cameras in stock. Remember the Pocket was only a steal for a week or so. These may go even faster. Disappointing that the URSA PL may not have sold as well as BMD and dealers expected, but I see this as inventory clearance time again, not the death knell.

    I think that they were overstocked as well. They are selling good quality cameras at lower prices so people coming from DSLR's are buying their cameras. DSLR shooter's have EF lenses so PL won't sell as much.

    This is probably to clear the stock of the v1 sensor. Notice the Big Ursa offered is ONLY the PL mount one. So they're probably trying to clear the stock of the v1 PL mount Ursa. The v2 is not part of this offer. That's full price.

    I hope you guys are right and they are just clearing V1 stock. Rick, you make a good point, as I too was one of the lucky folks who got the Pocket camera for only $500. :-)

    Interesting, by gutting the resale value of the Ursa it forces your hand in the upgrade process. It's a cold blooded power move, I like it.
