Turn off Tally?

Hey everyone,

I'm wondering if there's any way to turn off the tally light on the viewfinder for the Ursa mini Pro G2. Does anyone know?

On the URSA Mini 4.6K original you cannot turn Off the tally light. On the BMPCC4K you can turn it On and Off.

Internal menu, you can choose different luminance or off

I think from memory it’s the third page of Setup on the BMPCC4K.

Ah, good find, Robert, that tiny light doubles as a tally light for the URSA Mini. Not sure if someone 20’ away or more will see it compared to larger tally lights.
