BMPCC 6K Control with RS2

PostMon Apr 26, 2021 11:55 am

Hi everybody,

Since the 7.3 update, it seems that the BMPCC 6k cannot be controlled via usb cable anymore on the DJI RS2.

I have an exclamation mark in the DJI app next to the "camera control", and what seems odd is that I can "middle push" the button and it starts autofocusing but stops right in the middle.

Maybe something in the 7.3 changed something in the signal coming out of the USB ?

Anyone experiencing the same issue ?

Thanks !

I'm having the same issue with the Weebill S. Can't control the camera any longer.

Yes i can also confirm using the record button on the DJI RS2 to control the pocket 6k pro record function via USB-C is broken after this update.

Hi,

The guys from DJI have been in touch and we're looking into this.

Hi, the same here:
after the update 7.3 the wheel on the RS2 can not control the focus on my BMPCC 6K anymore. I love the RGB-Parade and the BRAW 4K recording option along with the other cool new features, but I am glad that I was able to dial back to 6.9.6. Without camera control the RS2 is almost useless for my kind of shooting. Please get that bug repaired soon. Thank you!

Is there any documentation somewhere on the usb-c camera control protocol ?
I checked the manual again and couldn't see anything related in the "developper informations" section of it.

EDIT: Nevermind, it's standard USB PTP class control.

No more communication between the 6K Pro and RS2 since the update to 7.3.
Thx.

Thanks everybody, in a sense this means it's not a problem with my gear but this coupled with the other problems of the 7.3 starts to feel like I will stay on 6.9 for a while.

Thanks !

Same exact problem here on my RS2.

How long do they expect this to be fixed?

Is it possible to downgrade? My 6k Pro is fairly useless without focus and record start/stop.

Every appropriate camera update earlier than 7.3 can be used to revert to a previous firmware level.

I am having the same problem with Zhiyun Weebill S and BMPCC 4k after update.

I have emailed Zhiyun but no reply as yet.

The focus wheel is now a defocus wheel.

The Weebill S cannot connect directly to the camera any more it needs the Zhiyun Wireless Trasmission accessory. But still only can defocus.

Hopefully Blackmagic are using their black arts to magic up a solution. Hope I"m not getting too technical for you.
