Blackmagic Design Pulls Camera Update Over Bug

Blackmagic pulls update
The company reverses on Camera 6.9.3 update. 

As reported by No Film School last week, Blackmagic Design rolled out Camera 6.9.3 update which allowed users to load custom LUTs and more to the URSA Mini Pro 4.6K cameras. The company has turned course and pulled the update from its support page and are now urging customers to roll back to Camera 6.9.2

A spokesperson told No Film School that a bug has been found in Camera 6.9.3 that causes a problem with noise in highlights. Blackmagic Design also said they "are working on a fix" and "will have an improved update soon." This rollback affects the original URSA Mini Pro 4.6K, G2, as well as the URSA Broadcast camera. 

This isn't the first time a company has pulled or changed its software on consumers. Most recently, after announcing Apple ProRes RAW support would be made available for the Panasonic LUMIX DC-S1H, Panasonic and Atomos pulled the support, saying they will need more time in order to correct a technical issue. To download Camera 6.9.2, visit the Blackmagic Design support page.

the good thing (that not all company do) you are allowed to downgrade firmware of your bmd tools to their born, on website are present all firmware versions of all products.
think to smartphone (i had iphone, it's a flame against it) that when you update it, see that work bad, you can't downgrade it legally.
Think to win10 that modify you bios (officially to write down license code), but you start to have problems to install other os (many unix distro), reflash firmware bios, and all problem disappears, install fresh win10, same story.
Think panasonic gh series, i founded a bug on a firmware update about using active adapter, that in previous firmware work fine, i must wait the update of active adapter, panasonic not allow to downgrade firmware of your device.
Toshiba smart tv, upgrade Os, all automatically by lan connection, problem of lan during upgrade, and i discover that on 1500$ tv no one genius install a small cache/recovery os if during ipgrade you miss lan... something that is present on motherboard of 50$ ...
i talk about my recent experience with my hardware but the list could longer...
i'm happy to invest to bmd, be great is also admit their errors.
