Blackmagic's Video Assist Now Supports High Frame Rates for Sigma fp

Blackmagic Design
Blackmagic Design releases firmware 3.2.3 for Video Assist. 

News from the land down under has surfaced this morning in the from of a firmware update.

While not as intriguing as the release of the URSA Mini Pro 12K, or say, a new full-frame Pocket Cinema Camera, the accessories filmmakers use to support workflow are just as important. Video Assist, Blackmagic's version of an external recorder and monitor, now supports 119.88fps and 100fps on Sigma fp for Blackmagic RAW. The minor firmware update also improves other features when shooting with Sigma fp. 

It's important to note this update only applies to the Video Assist 12G HDR models that come in 5" and 7" flavors. We reached out to Blackmagic to see if the 3G models will see the same update. If they respond, we will update this post. 

Firmware 3.2.3 also improves the color temperature of Blackmagic RAW on the Sigma fp, as well as fixes an issue with trigger recording when outputting BRAW to the camera. 

With all the new camera releases as of late, EOS R5, a7S III, Komodo, Z-CAM, the Sigma fp saw a major update in June, which included the addition of BRAW, ProRes RAW, and a ton of other features. 

You can find the Video Assist update on the Blackmagic support page
