Blackmagic Design Pulls Camera Update Over Bug
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.
