Recording codec for editing on Premiere on PC

PostMon Jan 29, 2018 2:41 pm

Hi all,

New to the forum and shooting with the Ursa Mini 4.6k tomorrow for the first time, having some hard time making out the best preference to shoot at.
The video will be distributed online mostly (youtube, vimeo...), probably exported on 1080p, but we want to take advantage of 4k for manipulation and intentional re-framing and digital zooms in post.

I will be editing, and grading the video on premiere pro on a laptop pc (a much capable one, but not of immense strength, i7 7700hq, 16gb, gtx 1060), but I haven't edited 4k on it yet and not sure how to best set the cameera for recording. We will be using some slow motion (hopefully up to the possible 120 on windowed mode), if that's relevant for the question.

I've been reading a lot but of course like anything, the answers are varied and I can't find any notably more recurring one than others.

Any help would be very much obliged.
