Blackmagic Wasn't Joking

Apparently, BMD wasn't joking around when they said a unified code base for their cameras would speed up firmware updates for their cameras. After just adding a slew of ProRes updates to all their cameras, BMD announced today that they are updating the BMPC4K with options that are sorely needed (I anticipate these will be available for the cinema camera soon):

  1. On Screen Histogram
  2. Time Remaining indicator for storage space
  3. Audio level indicators

More information is available here on the BMD update here. Initial testing on my BMPC4K is stable so far.
