Autofocus on 6.6 worse

PostMon Jan 13, 2020 10:44 pm

Can I donwgrade back to 6.5 on BMPCC 6K?

in 6.5, the autofocus was brilliant. My Canon lens responded quickly.

I upgraded to 6.6 because f the promise of improved autofocus -- but instead it's much worse. It searches for several more seconds, where as in the last version it focused almost instantly. I wanna go back!

Nothing stopping you from doing so.

Just remove FW 6.6 using the BMD tool, and reinstall 6.5. I found the AF improved on the Pocket 4K, for native MFT auto focus lenses.
