    I heard that the SDI connectors of the URSA cameras are finicky when it comes to connecting SDI devices to it. So after connecting the SDI cable to the device and camera, do you turn on the camera first then the device or the other way around?

    Make all your SDI connections, power on the camera then the accessories.
    Cheers

    Thanks Denny. I just want to make sure I got the order right before I damage the SDI port of the camera or the device.

    URSA cameras are not more or less finicky than other SDI devices, it's the nature of the beast.
    Back in the days, wehen dinosaurs roamed the earth, there was a sticker on every device with SDI connectors that says that you have to turn off everything before concerting - back than it was pretty much common knowledge.

    And yes, you can get away with hotpluging a 1000 times, but one day, it will hit you.
