When Blackmagic unveiled the new URSA Camera at NAB this past year, we took their release date of the end of July with a grain of salt. Much to our surprise the Studio Cameras shipped on time, and while they URSA is technically “late”, it might be released sooner than you think.
Jon Brawley, an Australian DP who has tested production models of previous Blackmagic Cameras, recently tweeted out a few photos of him shooting with PL Mount version of the URSA.

Since Brawley is likely testing the camera as he has done before, it means the rest of us will probably have to wait a little longer. However, it also probably means that we’re in the home stretch and the Blackmagic URSA will be shipping soon.
We plan on renting the Blackmagic URSA as soon as it is available.
