    "About Blackmagic Camera Utility
    Welcome to the Blackmagic Camera Setup!
    This software package allows you to update your Blackmagic Camera to the latest software release for new features, bug fixes and other enhancements.

    The software installer no longer installs the Desktop Video or UltraScope applications and they will need to be downloaded separately from the Blackmagic Design website: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support

    To use UltraScope via Thunderbolt with Blackmagic Cinema Camera or Production Camera 4K, download and install the Blackmagic UltraScope software. If you want to use Media Express with the supported cameras, download and install the Blackmagic Desktop Video software.

    Please ensure that your device is plugged into mains power before running the software update. For users updating URSA Mini from 4.0 or above it is advisable to export your presets and LUT’s onto a card as they will be removed during this update.

    Installing Blackmagic Camera Utility
    Before installing the software on Windows, we recommend that you run "Uninstall Blackmagic Camera Setup” first.

    The Blackmagic Camera Installer package installs:
    Blackmagic Camera Setup
    Uninstall Blackmagic Camera Setup
    User Manuals
    While installing Camera Update on URSA Mini and URSA Mini Pro you may notice a pause around the 10% mark in the install process, this is normal and will continue installing after around 20 seconds.

    After loading the software on the Blackmagic Cinema Camera PL, EF or MFT, you may notice a slight flickering on the built-in LCD screen. This is normal and expected behavior. The flickering will go away after a few minutes of operation.

    Does the "vertical pixel offset" fix mean that we no longer need to shift the pan and tilt by 0.5? or is this simply a viewing fix?

    I'm planning to use the Micfro Cinema with a web presenter. I wish they have the ability to output LUTs like the Ursa Mini.

    from my quick test i can't seem to see the crosshatching pattern. zooming in, zooming out. can't see it.

    So i'd say it seems fixed. can others test it out if they get a chance?

    This one sure caught me by surprise tonight! Great update, thanks BM.
    Homie, do you think the increase sensitivity update,on the Micro Studio, going from -12to +12db in gain, is adjusting the native ISO from the previous 100 to 400? Before 0 gain was ISO100 now that is -12, so 0 is ISO 400. We should see a cleaner image at 400 than previously?
    Cheers

    Ok. 17 S.Bus channels support is great and makes all existing controllers with fixed buttons outdated
    But after so long time there is still no clear 16:9 output without safe zones This is the main thing that many users ask for this camera. Just add one more line to the menu. 16:9 WITHOUT safe zones. Just full sensor output with information overlays. Why are they forced us to use cropped 1.85:1 for that?
