New Focus / Zoom Demand Controls with URSA?

PostThu Jul 29, 2021 8:21 pm

Hi All,

With today’s update BMD released new Focus / Zoom demand controls for the new studio cameras.

Surely they could be used also with URSA Mini Pro.

Any Thoughts?
4K setup with 6 x URSA Mini Pro 4.6K (G1 & G2), 2 x BMDPCC 6K, BMD 4/ME Broadcast 4K, 6 x Hyperdeck Studio 12G's, CCU, Advanced Panel with all the other BMD units for Live Production.

Likely possible with a firmware update... will have to wait and see. I am sure someone will buy one to test it with at some point.

These look very interesting depending on the latency they offer. LANC is not good enough, but if these are more like the broadcast-style zoom / focus demands I can definitely see the new cameras as interesting even without B4-lenses.

I bought the Focus Demand and it works great on the 6K and the 6K Pro. Negligible latency and the knob feel is awesome.

Really wish they'd update the Ursa 12K firmware so I could use it on that camera!

What lens do you use with focus demand? I have problems with all of my EF glass - focus is not smooth and often goes through whole range instead of moving just a bit.
