Mathers takes the plunge and orders an URSA Mini Pro 12K

I've been following the CML discussions, sample footage, and posts, mostly by John Brawley and have decided to take the plunge and buy an URSA Mini Pro 12K.  I think it really checks off a lot of boxes required for the- next generation Digital Cinema camera. 

    It is hard to spend money when there is so much uncertainty in the world, and I honestly don't have any imminent projects to shoot with it right now, but I guess nobody really does.  However, I have a couple of films looking very promising once things get going again that I think this camera would be well suited for.  Since I have a significant investment in S35 format glass, I like that this camera fits into my current lens and camera support infrastructure.

    As some of you may remember, I was an early adopter and quite active in the rollout of the RED One, and I plan to similarly share my experience and test footage from this new camera...the good, the bad, and if it happens to be...the ugly. 

    I actually ordered the camera the first day I became aware of it, so I am expecting to receive shipment in the first batch by mid-August.  In the meantime I can only cross my fingers and hope the camera is everything I expect it to be.

If I remember correctly, the article you wrote was titled "How I spent
$90,000 on a $16,500 camera."

It was one of the very few honest evaluations of that beast and what it
actually cost to begin shooting with it.

It was the highlight of CML.  We looked forward to each installment.
