Blackmagic Camera 4.7.1 Update and Ursa Mini 4K

PostWed Nov 22, 2017 2:55 am

Hi there

I have not updated the firmware on my Mini 4K for a while and tried to update to the latest today (Blackmagic Camera 4.7.1 Update) form the website.

When I run the program it says my camera is up to date - It has software 4.4 on it.

Does that mean there are no updates and 4.4 is where it should be?

It does say in the readme for this update (4.7.1):

"URSA Mini 4K and URSA Mini 4.6K
Fixed an issue where URSA Mini is updated incorrectly."

So it sounds like it should update it?

Just checking I am not missing anything with this update?

Thanks

I have found the answer.

Apparently 4.4 is the latest for the Mini 4K. If you don't have 4.4 the new update will update it to that correctly.

Thanks

Yes, 4.7.1 is a corrected update for the Micro camera’s replacing some issues with 4.7.

I have the URSA Mini 4.6K and it also says up to date with FW 4.4. If your URSA Mini has FW 4.4, you're good to go.

I tried installing 4.7.1 on my Ursa Mini 4.6k and I got the same message telling me that it's up to date even when the firmware on my camera is 4.4. I don't see anything wrong with the camera, but I like having my equipment up to date, and this confuses me a little.

Ruben, FW 4.4 is the latest FW version for the Ursa Mini! If you read the 4.7.1updste notes, you will see this update is for the Micro Cinema and a Micro Studio cameras only. Not all FW updates are for all BM cameras.
