Here's a short, energetic video shot on the Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6K and the DJI Inspire X5R that delivers fireworks and "fun on the midway."

While the Blackmagic Ursa Mini 4.6K has been out in the wild for a few months now, we're still getting new videos crossing our desks that shine a light on some aspect of the camera. The following video was submitted by Gary Yost, a photographer, cinematographer and filmmaker, on his excursion to the Marin County Fair on July 4th, 2016 (Independence Day, to you Brits). Of note: the video was shot in available light at night in 4.6K raw, with additional footage captured on the DJI Inspire X5R (also in raw) for aerial and hyperlapse, which consisted of the X5R mounted on a DJI Osmo). Roundtripping from FCPX (edit) and Resolve (colour) was done via Primaries Exporter to ensure accuracy trip-to-trip.

The video is an interesting showcase for the Ursa Mini 4.6K and the X5R and their ability to render pleasing images in such a difficult shooting environment. Let us know in the comments what you think of the performance of these cameras, as exhibited in Fun on the Midway @ Marin County Fair.

[A word of warning: Much of the imagery in Fun on the Midway @ Marin County Fair is fairly fast-moving and frenetic. If you are sensitive to such material, please exercise caution in viewing.]
