Hi Tim,

I'm glad to have a new update, I own a Ursa Mini Pro video camera along with all the accessories, I know Blackmagic Design is trying to improve and optimize things, but I'd be delighted if you could add the following in the next update:

1. waveform signal monitor on LCD - very useful
2. maybe enable dnxhd codec
3. in timelapse mode may be able to make full uncompress still frames (18MB vs 11MB)> it differs between "STILL" images and RAW video at the seme frame, in RAW video picture and see artifacts, less details ...

Thank you, all good.

Thanks for the feature requests... We'll look into these and add them to our request list for future releases.

As I'm sure you can understand it's quite a long list.
