With a maximum frame rate of 60 frames per second, the Blackmagic Design URSA PL has a fairly fast maximum frame rate compared to most of the other camcorders that were launched more than two years ago.

We compared all the other video cameras with an interchangeable lens to this camcorder and we think cheaper video cameras such as the Blackmagic Design URSA EF[plb_2446397_price] is also worth considering.

We compared this camcorder to all the other Full HD camcorders and we think cheaper camcorders such as the Blackmagic Design URSA EF[plb_2446397_price] is also worth considering.

Video cameras which are Full HD that might also be worth looking at include the Sony PXW-X160[plb_2512210_price].

8 Reasons Against

Not Cheap

The cheapeast video cameras of this type and age that we found costs £29 and the most expensive costs £6,999. We think that this video camera looks expensive for a camcorder that has been available for more than two years.

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

Like most of the other camcorders of this spec and age, the URSA PL does not have an image stabilizer.

We think you might also be interested in other video cameras which also have an image stabilizer including the Sony PXW-X160[plb_2512210_price].

Does Not Have an HDMI

The Blackmagic Design URSA PL does not have an HDMI. Most of the other comparable spec video cameras that have been available for more than two years also do not have an HDMI.

We think you might also be interested in other camcorders which also have an HDMI including the Sony PXW-X160[plb_2512210_price].

Not Waterproof

Like most of the other camcorders that were released around the same time as the URSA PL, the URSA PL is not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Not 3D

Like most of the other camcorders that were released more than two years ago, the URSA PL is not 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Night Mode

Most camcorders that have been available for a similar time to the URSA PL do not have a night mode. The URSA PL is no exception to this as it too does not have a night mode.

Chart Edit

Like most of the other video cameras that came out around the same time as the URSA PL, the URSA PL does not have a built-in projector.

Chart Edit

Very Heavy

Video cameras of this age and spec have weights of between 59g and 7.5kg, and the average weight is 880g. With a weight of 7.4 kilograms, the URSA PL is one of the heaviest camcorders that came out around the same time as the URSA PL amongst camcorders of this age.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 7.4kg weight camcorders currently available including cheaper camcorders such as the Blackmagic Design URSA EF[plb_2446397_price].

Other video cameras with a heavier weight that you might want to look at include the Blackmagic Design Studio Camera HD[plb_2466905_price] (2kg and cheaper).
