iPad Camera Control App won’t “Stop” recording

PostTue Mar 13, 2018 7:27 pm

I’ve posted elsewhere and emailed BM Support twice, with no response thus far, so I thought I’d try here.

I can pair my Mini Pro 4.6k to my iPad fine, but there are two glitches.

1 - The most important one is that I can start recording from the app, but not ‘Stop’. The record button does not change into a stop button as one might expect, and no matter what I do on the screen, I cannot get the camera to stop recording without going to the button on the camera itself.

2 - If I change the shutter angle, the App button bounces to “0” and then on the camera itself will only toggle between 172.8* and 216*. Nothing else is available and I have to shut down the app and re-pair it to get 180* again.

Thoughts? Ideas?

Same here..BM replied to me on the forum and said they are working on a fix. I have a feeling we’ll see a new version of the app around NAB
