Blackmagic Design has unified their firmware through out their camera range. This significant update has been widely expected and I am sure will give many camera owners something to smile about. The unification of the firmware is also a very clever move that hopefully will mean more frequent updates of the software.

Some of the new additions are:

  • Iris setting is retained when switching between camera recording and clip playback

  • Improved support for Sigma MFT lenses
  • Improved support for Lumix 12-42mm PZ lens
