Best of Show NAB 2014: Blackmagic URSA

Large camera on a tripod head with an award


Blackmagic URSA review


This looks like a great camera, but this video review with your reporter is very poorly shot. The audio of the guy explaining the features is off mike much of the time and the camera operator doesn't seem to know what frame he is after - lots of annoying wobbles. Plus there's no real B Roll shots of the camera.

What were you thinking? For a magazine/web site that focuses on video, I would have expected a much more professional presentation. Your operator needs to look at your own training videos and learn how to shoot this stuff properly. Maybe give them a copy of 'How to Shoot and Edit like a Pro'.
