Just recently I had tested the new Blackmagic Ursa mini 4.6K PL version mouth with 2 anamorphic lens; Master and Cooke 2x Anamorphic.
I shot in 4.6K RAW, graded in DaVinci Resolve 12.5 and added film look with Fuji Eterna 8553 from FilmConvert in Premiere CC2015.3.

Just recently I had a hands-on Blackmagic Ursa mini 4.6K with a new calibrated sensor for testing. It was in EF Mouth.

I tested it with only 2 of CP.2 lens; 21 and 50 mm.
I shot test with a very dark environment. I had only 1 of 1K Freshnel top down from the catwalk and the candles on the floor. I rated 400, 800 and 1600 ASA mixed.
I shot at full 4.6K resolution, 4608 x 2592, in RAW at 25fps. The DNG files were so huge. When we brought these footage into DaVinci Resolve 12.5 these 16bit DNG was really, really wonderful. It was so easy to work with or to grade. I could say, these files are so powerful with very low noise.

Then, I tried to graded another way.
My editing software was Premiere ProCC2015.3. I ingest those DNG RAW into proxies. This workflow was really helpful. I edited this fighting sequence with my MacBook Pro 2011 edition. When I finished, I exported XML to DaVinci Resolve 12.5 to generate those RAW to 16bit DPX at 3840×2160 25p.

Then I brought those 16bit DPX into Photoshop CC2015.5. I had applied my own Look which I made with the Adobe Capture. This wonderful app is in my Androids mobile. Adobe Capture is my easy way to collect colourful subject from everyday scene to make a LOOK instantly. When ever I had created any new LOOK, I then sync to Adobe Cloud. These LOOK will automatically added into Photoshop CC.

After that I rendered video out in Cineon format at the same bit and same resolution. Then I brought these Cineon files into Premiere CC for final out put. In making sound I had made it in an easy way. I recored foley using 1 microphone captured sound with MacBookAir. And for music I mad it simple with GarageBand.

I love this beast 16bit DNG RAW of the new calibrated 4.6K sensor..
