A7III no longer works with UltraStudio Mini Recorder

PostFri Nov 09, 2018 3:50 am

I've been tearing my hair out with this today. Recent firmware and/or software updates have lead to the A7III (one of the most popular cameras in the world right now) not working with the Mini Recorder. There's no longer any way to stream footage to my Mac.

This is an issue that many people seem to be having, including well-known vlogger Jason Vong who mentioned in the comments of his video about live streaming with Sony cameras that he no longer uses a Mini Recorder for this reason.

I'm not sure how to contact the engineering team, but is this something that could be looked into? Has anyone out there with the A7III managed to get it working?

Is this an A7 III only issue? I recently purchased the Mini Recorder for use with my A7R III - not getting any picture and even QuickTime says "This Operation could not be completed" when I select the Mini Recorder as an input. Any help appreciated.

Did anyone already check the Output resolution and framerate on a normal tv?? Hit the INFO button and see what it says.

Ultrastudio mini recorders only support up to 1080i50/60. I bet the camera outputs 1080P50/60 or some other resolution not supported by the UMR ;)

720p50, 720p59.94, 720p60
1080p23.98, 1080p24, 1080p25, 1080p29.97, 1080p30
