    Is there a video tutorial on PL mount installation for the UMP online? Have't been able to find one.

    Don't you think I already did that nimrod. Only video I've found is a time-lapse. Anyway If you don't have anything constructive just stay off the thread.

    People that know me here know I never call names or respond like that they also know I don't ask stupid questions. Your response just rubbed me the wrong way.

    I'd saying helping you find the answer yourself is constructive. The only video I could find is the timelapse. There are instructions on how to change the mount in the manual. Have you read the instructions for it? This is not meant to be snarky - I'm trying to find out what you've already done to try and find the solution yourself (comes from my time as an educator - give a fish vs teach to fish).

    PS: You can no longer say you "never call names"

    I do apologise for snapping at you. I'm preparing to purchase an UMP with the PL mount so I don't have the manual which I'm sure will be Included with the mount. But since I'm more visual I was seeing if there was a video in it. Between the time-lapse and the manual I guess I should be fine. I'd be using mostly EF but sometimes I want to rent pl glass.

    I completely understand - I'm more of a "hands-on/visual" type myself.

    Please know that I never meant any disrespect - I've seen far too many people just ask questions without ever trying to find the answer for themselves. I have an eduacator's background, and I'll always try to help people find out how to look for answers themselves. I also encourage people that ask questions to start with what they've already tried - the more information the forums have, the better equipped they are to help.

    Here's the manual, by the way :http://documents.blackmagicdesign.co...ini_Manual.pdf

    I have a Pocket4k on pre-order, and I'm also looking at getting a UMP soon after that

    Darren, this is not hard, just a matter of unscrewing the EF Mount, switching the shim and screwing in the PL mount. What yiu will need is a micro torque driver with the correct bit, see https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/v...hp?f=2&t=74805. You can also PM Rick Lang for some help,he does this on his UM. The instructions are in the BM UM Pro manual, available on line from BM Support site https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/sup...sional-cameras
    Cheers

    It is intensely simple. Find a torque screwdriver and the right bits ( I like these because they help with the B4 mount 1/4 Inch Shank 2mm Hex Head Magnetic Screwdriver Bits 5pcs . Then just do it in the order listed in the instructions.
