Viewfinder - How do I update it?

PostMon Nov 26, 2018 5:08 pm

Hello,

great new camera 6.0 update especially with the ISO 3200 feature, nice!

What I encountered after some testing was that the URSA Viewfinder in my case shows
1. no number instead of the 3200 when selected
2. 24fps when 25fps is selected

Someone else having these issues?

Regards Timo

Did you update the EVF at the same time you updated the camera to 6.0? After updating the camera, you need to connect rhe EVF to the computer and run the update on it. See the manual.

As Denny mentioned you will need to update your viewfinder using the 6.0 camera utility.

I updated the viewfinder now and the ISO number shows.
But the frame rate is still not correct. It shows 24fps instead of the 25fps set in camera.

Anyone else still having issues with a different frame rate being displayed on the viewfinder?

Mini ursa EVF issues.
Yes, same issues.
Didn't know there was an update for the EVF, however yes, have the same problem.
ISO displaying 800, when I'm at 200, and FPS displayed at 24, when I'm at 25, 60, etc

Hi Guys,
Like to thank Warwick from Blackmagic for rendering assistance in the EVF Update issue, and anyone else who may have posted some advice.
Problem sorted.
