LED screen going black or Camera is powering off

PostMon Apr 07, 2014 12:46 am

Hi Everyone,
I just got my Black Magic 4k camera and just started shooting with it just for fun. After the battery indicator went down to 10% I noticed that sometimes when I hit record or any other button the camera powered off. Is this happening to anyone else? I have to turn the camera back on to get the lcd display to come back up, but the battery indicator still shows 10%. Is this a known bug or is there something wrong with my camera or battery? Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated! Thank you.

Have you updated the firmware on the camera? It could be a solution but I'm not 100% sure. If it doesn't resolve your problem, contact support and they should be able to run you through some tests to address this.
