    I don't think he (the guy in the YT) know what the heck he is talking about. He bought Grant's BS.

    I don't think he got that from Grant sounds like he talked to someone else. But I still believe it's likely correct the R&D time would make it not worth it. Thats why upgrades can make sense for $20,000+ cameras but not $4,000

    Emails from B&H said that the URSA 4K EF has been discontinued. A representative of Blackmagic says that isn't so. Here's more recent thread...

    Is he just pulling our chain or is there really still hope for the turret?

    Interesting. One guy on the blackmagic forum filed a complaint, because they did not deliver what was promised. Well actually that goes the same for the global shutter. Hopefully global shutter will come as well.

    They don't...it's discontinued (before actually even existing). Big URSA 4.6K will never see the light of day IMO.

    FYI: Posted yesterday by Grant Petty:
    https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/v...hp?f=2&t=61288

    He says the Big Ursa 4.6K turret "project" isn't dead, and in the meantime the UMP46 loyalty offer "... has been extended until further notice." YMMV.

    It's good to see the man himself post something, but we're going on three years here, ha.

    The camera started shipping in August/September of 2014.

    I think they are just feeling the heat from everyone over there, but wouldn't put anything past Grant.

    BM is a great company.
