9 Reasons For

Blackmagic Design Camcorders Have Excellent Reviews

On average Blackmagic Design video cameras have excellent ratings compared to other manufacturers as do all video cameras produced by Blackmagic Design.

Fairly Fast Maximum Frame Rate

The slowest maximum frame rate of video cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the URSA PL is 25fps and the fastest is 60fps. The URSA PL has a fairly fast maximum frame rate (60 frames per second) compared to most of the other similar spec camcorders that have been around for a comparable time to the URSA PL.

Full HD HD Type

The HD type of this camcorder is Full HD, which is typical of many similar spec video cameras that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Has an Interchangeable Lens

The Blackmagic Design URSA PL has an interchangeable lens, which is unusual. Most of the other camcorders of this age and type do not have an interchangeable lens.

We compared all the other video cameras with an interchangeable lens to this video camera and we think the Blackmagic Design Production Camera 4K[plb_2643988_price] which has better reviews; or the Blackmagic Design URSA EF[plb_2446397_price] which is cheaper are also worth considering.

Full HD

Full HD

The URSA PL is Full HD, unlike most of the other video cameras that were released around the same time as the URSA PL which are not Full HD.

We compared this video camera to all the other Full HD video cameras and we think a cheaper video camera such as the Sony PMW-200[plb_1558790_price], and the Blackmagic Design URSA EF[plb_2446397_price] or you might consider a better rated video camera such as the Blackmagic Design Production Camera 4K[plb_2643988_price] are also worth considering.

3840 X 2160 Pixels Video Resolution

The URSA PL supports a 3840 x 2160 pixels video resolution which is higher than the 1280 x 720 pixels video resolution supported by most camcorders that were launched around the same time as it. This Blackmagic Design video camera also supports a video resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Has a Built-In Display

Like most of the other comparable spec video cameras that were launched around the same time as the URSA PL, the URSA PL has a built-in display.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative video cameras with a built-in display currently available including the Sony PMW-200[plb_1558790_price], or the Blackmagic Design URSA EF[plb_2446397_price] which is cheaper.

We compared this video camera to all the other video cameras with a built-in display and we think the Sony PXW-X160[plb_2512210_price] is also worth considering.

8 Reasons Against

Expensive

The price range of video cameras of a similar spec and age is from £39 to £4,990. We think that this camcorder looks expensive compared to other video cameras of a similar spec and age.

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The URSA PL does not have an image stabiliser. Most of the other video cameras that have been available for around the same time as the URSA PL also do not have an image stabiliser.

We think you might also be interested in alternative camcorders which also have an image stabiliser including the Sony PMW-200[plb_1558790_price] which is also cheaper.

Does Not Have an HDMI Port

Other video cameras which also have an HDMI port that you might also want to consider include the Sony PMW-200[plb_1558790_price] which is also cheaper.

Not Waterproof

The Blackmagic Design URSA PL is not waterproof, although this is within the context that most of the other similar spec camcorders that have been around for around the same time as the URSA PL are also not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Like most of the other video cameras of a comparable age and spec to the URSA PL, the Blackmagic Design URSA PL does not have a night mode.

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Most camcorders of this type and age are not 3D compatible. The URSA PL is no exception to this as it too is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Projector

Like most of the other comparable spec video cameras that were released more than two years ago, the URSA PL does not have a built-in projector.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

When compared to other video cameras of a similar age and spec to the URSA PL that we have checked, the weight of the URSA PL of 7.4 kilograms is one of the heaviest. The lightest video camera of this age and type is 59g weight, the heaviest is 7.5kg, and the average weight is 880g.

We compared this video camera to all the other 7.4kg weight video cameras and we think cheaper camcorders such as the Blackmagic Design URSA EF[plb_2446397_price] is also worth considering.

If you would consider a video camera with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Sony PMW-200[plb_1558790_price] (2.7kg and cheaper).
