The current Ursa's *terribad* for low-light (a compromise made to get the global shutter in there) but this may change with the new 4.6k sensor - too early to say yet though. The Pocket and Cinema...

That's pretty normal - adding filters plays havoc with flares unless your lens has a hood or matte box - so long as the Firecrest isn't affecting the colour-cast of your image then it's working for...

Yes - knowing your way around a light meter is a useful skill - I have a rather lovely Gossen light meter but I rarely use it any more - still, better to have one and not need it eh?

1) it doesn't come with the shoulder-mount and the EVF - those add an extra $1,900 to the price.
