Blackmagic Design recently released its 1.8 update for its Blackmagic Cinema Camera, Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera and Blackmagic Production Camera 4K,. A new code base offers improved performance and a new user interface similar in design to Blackmagic’s recently-announced URSA camera. It also brings compressed RAW DNG support to the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K model. With this update, users gain enhanced lens control support for EF lens mount cameras such as the original Blackmagic Cinema Camera EF and the Blackmagic Production Camera 4K models. This means customers can now get auto focus when pushing the focus button on active EF based lenses. The release also improves the focus peaking display. The original Blackmagic Cinema Camera gains enhancements to the camera’s dynamic range when shooting at 1600 ISO. For the Pocket Cinema Camera, the 1.8 update includes the new interface, focus peaking and improved de-bayer quality, plus additional active MFT lens support for lenses including Sigma and Lumix. 7.H20.
