    Hi all

    Just a quick question to anyone who knows how these things work. I've just bought a Ursa Mini Pro and very happy with it indeed but I was wondering whether it's likely we can expect a firmware update to allow certain things that were announced for the new Pocket 4k. I'm thinking specifically about baking in LUTs and the Expanded Video mode? I also notice that the UMP has a USB-C port - is there a chance a firmware update could allow SSD recording through it like the Pocket or would that be impossible for hardware reasons?

    I tried searching to see if this has been asked/answered before but couldn't find anything. Apologies if it's a repeat.

    Thanks!

    Nic

    Grant Petty has already said that Color Science 4.0 is coming to Ursa Minis and maybe some others so I assume some other features might as well. Pretty positive there's nothing hardware-wise preventing SSD recording the USB-C on the Ursa. Data can already be sent through the connection for firmware updates so clearly the data pins are in-tact and the interface is exposed to operating system so I think there's a good chance they'll add that feature.

    My only question is when. Because the broadcast is already released. I figure it would be released already. (Color science 4 that is).

    Is there somewhere I can read about the different versions of Colour Science? I've heard people talk about BM cameras' colour science but I've only been hearing version numbers of it talked about in the last couple of months.

    Yes, but the various versions are close, with minor tweaks and improvements in each version. The original Cinema cameras were ver 1, the Ursa line ver 3 and the new Broadcast and Picket 4K ver 4: which adds Extended Video setting (there was no ver 2).
    This was in a post from Captain Hook (BMD), if I remember correctly.
    Cheers
