I'm hoping that with the requests and showed interest that has occurred recently that DNxHD and DNxHR will come to the camera by IBC 2017. That's about a month away. My fingers are crossed. Chances are that's also when we'll get the full release of Resolve 14, the SSD Recorder for the URSA Mini, and the Nikon Mount. Those are my guesses, and no hard evidence to back any of it up.

+1 and I own three URSA Minis.
What's baffling here is the Blackmagic Video Assist 4K supports all flavors of DNxHD and DNxHR. How the heck is this not also in your cameras, Blackmagic?

You can process ProRes on PCs without QT, using DR 14 or even Premiere Pro (but it's more mature in DR).

No one should have to ask for what was already promised. We still have an version of the firmware that has DNx grayed out. Which means it was planned. If the video assist can do it, the cameras should, as well.

Why? You can read ProRes on the PC, just not write it.

You can read it, but at least the QuickTime version is highly inefficient. It takes 60-70% of my i7-980's 6+6 cores just to play ProRes UHD 25p. While Cineform or DNxHD only take ~15%.

I think many of us didn't think we needed to ask for it since BMD had said before it was coming. I really want it.

My hope right now is that this week we get a firmware update that includes it. They announced the Nikon mount as shipping at IBC 2017, so fingers are crossed that any firmware updates they release for that support include DNx. They also have the SSD Recorder for the UMP shipping in about 4 weeks from what was said at IBC, so hopefully the firmware update that includes support for that also has DNx if it's not in the one for Nikon lens support. Either way, I hope it's in a firmware update soon.

Facebook recently blew up with some new demand on the Blackmagic Ursa Mini & Ursa Mini Pro Users group.

Tim..

Why the hell are we begging for a feature that was already promised to us? Why is Blackmagic like this? This is the ONE thing that has kept me from having faith in you guys, between this and the og ursa being "upgradable"... there's always something that you all don't fufill on.

And then again they do deliver things that weren’t promised. For example, Bluetooth in the Pro. I’m not implying that you’re wrong Jeffrey, but there’s more to BMD than a company that doesn’t deliver everything promised.

Now that Cineform codec is open sourced and cross platform, wondering if this high quality codec would be a viable alternative with no licensing issue.
