    Short anwer your crazy, so YES!! Did you guys at ANY point ask yourselves: Do we produce Hollywood blockbuater Movies? Answer is NO, so you didn't need these! Nor does ANY NOlocalr, your content is not worth It. Not for historical Archiving, even at the moment, or for future BluRay releases in 20years...

    my biggest question is why do you have a camera capable of shooting fucking 12K@60fps or 8K@120fps but you still only post to youtube at 30fps????

    12k comes with huge recuirements for optics and focus. It would be interesting to see discussion on what kind of optics can even draw 80 mpix worth of details and if the difference is noticeable vs 8k considering this and possible imperfections in focus.

    I haven't used this camera but I have used the Arri Alexa Mini and LF for several projects... and all I can say is you guys made the wrong choice, of course it costs more BUT skin tones and DR/noise is simple put stunning and unbeatable. That said I use a mobile phone and a Fujifilm X100T in my personal life for photography and I am completely content so I guess everything has a use case and you guys probably would be just fine with a Sony A9/A7 camera let alone a URSA. Also anyone saying its overkill, it sure is NOT overkill on my 65" OLED its very much appreciated.

This is a youtube tech channel not a hollywood enterprise. You guys must be making massive amounts of disposable income and just have nothing else to spend all that money on. In that respect it is a cool camera 🤣

    LMG should focus less on the high-end features of a camera and learn to nail your focus, exposure and overall learn to shoot better video. They are a channel that's way too "Run and Gun" for the kinds of cameras they buy. They have great content, you should have higher standards for hiring cinematographers... If you insist on using stupid high-end systems. Especially when there are channels out there using basic lighting and a single mirrorless camera setup that look better than LMG videos.
