Anyone nows how to make it work with the Arduino Leonardo?
I have it working with the uno buy I can't make it work with the Leonardo. I connected GND, sda and scl from Leonardo pins that are different from uno.
Thank you.

Should not be a problem.. The i2c connector on the leonardo is also near the reset button. As well as on the SDI board.

Hello everyone,

I am currently developing a camera remote control and unfortunately hang in one place.
I don't get the following commands to work:

SDI-Overlay.png (10.83 KiB) Viewed 384 times

SDI-FocusAssist.png (21.24 KiB) Viewed 384 times

Did anyone ever get these commands up and running?
Could someone send me a code sample?
Besides, I don't understand how to interpret the int 16 bit-field.
The rest of my code is working fine.

I would be very pleased to receive an answer.
Greetings from Germany,

PS.: I use a shield with the current software version 1.1.
As a camera I use a Ursa Mini 4k. But I also tried it with a Ursa fullsize and a Ursa Mini Pro G1.

Is the shield able to read the incoming tally?
I am interested in hooking up an LED to the Arduino and making my own tally light at a non Blackmagic camera.

Im currently getting started with the shield. Most of the commands I like to use I got working, but my main problem with the shield ist getting my PGM through the device while controlOverwrite ist active. I only reseave a frame at my camera in the second I refresh a command (LED 4 blinks at the shield). This isn't just a problem of my custom sketches, it also takes place with the example PotZoom Sketch.
Did anyone had simular experience and found a solution?

Hi, I'm having in issue with initiating an Auto White Balance command via arduino. I'm able to make the Instantaneous Auto Focus work which uses the same command format.

The Auto White Balance type is void, so calling the command should work, but doesn't. Here's the function I made:

// This sends a white balance adjustment command, with a simple camera control packet.
void autoWhiteBalance() {

1, // Destination: Camera 1
1, // Category: Video
3 // Paramter: Auto White Balance

Can anyone verify if they've gotten this function to work?
