UPDATE: The Camera 6.9.3 update now has a fix. You can download the software package here.
Blackmagic Design Camera 6.9.3 update didn’t go quite as planned. The company pulled the update from its support page because of a highlights bug, but was quick to fix the issue.
Blackmagic Design urged everyone to roll back to Camera 6.9.2 if they received the Camera 6.9.3 update. The update was aiming to allow users to load LUTs and more into the URSA Mini Pro 4.6K camera. However, the update was pulled from the support page after a bug was found. The bug caused a problem with noise in highlights.
Blackmagic is working on a solution
Blackmagic said they were “working on a fix” and “would have an improved update soon.” They have since released a fix for the issue. The Camera 6.9.3 update rollback applied to the original USRA Mini Pro 4.6K, G2, and the URSA Broadcast camera.
The statement from Blackmagic Design about the bug read as:
“Note: We have been told of a bug in our recent Camera 6.9.3 update that can cause a problem with noise in highlights. We are working on a fix and have temporarily removed the link. Please revert to Camera 6.9.2 update if you see any problems, we will have an improved update soon.”
