    Hi guys!
    Is it something new for Production camera for last year?
    Maybe new updates? Some new LUTs?

    Thanks!

    I don't think there are any more updates to the BMPC4K product. It has got pretty much what [BMD thinks] is needed, Anything newer will have to be an URSA.

    There will probably be small tweaks every now and then for all the older cameras, to keep them up to date as possible.
    Cheers

    Whoa, missed this. It's super small, but I do like to keep updated. I'm not too bent out of shape about no major updates, they have delivered everything they promised with the camera, anything additional at this point is gravy. Yes, there are a couple things I would have loved to see, but I'm ok with saving up some money and buying an ursa mini pro now. I have used my BMPC a crap ton over the last couple years, it's a true work horse and still making me money.

    I missed that too. So good they are doing updates for the BMPC4K even thought it is very minimal. Now how about for the URSA 4K Major? Can they get it at least to Firmware 4.0 with the new UI?

    Honestly, probably not. It's safe to assume that BMD considers everything below the Ursa Mini cameras "feature complete".

    It is certainly still a great camera, but the now updated touch screen performance and reliability has never been a problem for me. I am more annoyed by black spot issue, the randomly appearing fixed pattern noise, and the inflexible lens mount. Sometimes it is so frustrating to see what is possible with e-mount instead. I'd rather have a real updated version 2, with interchangeable lens. The ursa mini pro is so close, but it misses the global shutter and unfortunately the form factor does not suit my needs. Looking forward at NAB17 or 18.
