    A Xmas present from BMD I cant believe it.
    Its addresses a few things that Mini 4.6k lacked which the Mini Pro has such as SSD module support and latency for the screens.

    I just tried it on my UM46. The decreased latency in the viewfinder and on the screen is very helpful if you want to follow fast moving things or do whip pans!

    Well the SSD module was already confirmed to support all Ursa Minis not just the UMP back in September at IBC, it is not a matter of if but when

    Although the FW 4.8 is very welcome indeed I felt I have to correct my initial post. It is not so much a Xmas gift but something that was either promised as in the case of the SSD module for all Ursa Minis, or inevitable. We have play back scrubbing on the Video Assist and we all know the Ursa Mini screen is essentially a 5" Video Assist. Since UMP is essentaily similar to the UM 4.6k it is only a matter of coding to bring screen latency up to the same as the UMP as indeed the SSD module to work with all Minis. So while Xmas beckons these features was more expected than anything new, it is just the timing that made it special.

    I love the scrubbing on my ursa mini pro.

    2 problems though.
    - But when toggling between playback and shooting, seems to take longer then before? Can someone verify that?
    - Also I am unable to playback footage shot before 4.8. When I playback footage shot with 4.8 it is working fine, but whenever I want to playback footage from 4.7 it does no longer show the images on the cards.(CF or SD).
