This was with ND 2 engaged.

Of all the BMD camera issues, this one is the prettiest.

The rainbow flare is horrible... I didn't know about it and shot outside all day with my UMP 4.6 for a client using lots of ND. Lots of great footage is unusable in my opinion. It's a shame to have a camera with such great potential, but also so many significant problems.

The newer ones have the mask installed. There was a lot of publicity for the retrofit of the earlier cameras and so unfortunate that not everyone may have been aware of it.

This seems a bit trolly. It was fixed long ago and like Rick said, the new ones come with the mask. So what's going on here?

Well, we know that some folks buy a camera in the hopes of big chances coming along. Then these don't arrive and the camera sits in a cabinet. Finally it's sold, without taking care of any updates.

How can I get a hold of this IR filter/fix? That little rainbow cloud has ruined one too many shots for me...

Contact your regional BMD Support and they’ll send the appropriate item for you to install.
