Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K and Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera Update 4.7 Released

Blackmagic has released Camera 4.7 Update enabling RAW via SDI for Micro Studio Camera 4K and Micro Cinema Camera Update 4.7.

Camera 4.7 Update brings a number of significant improvements to both cameras. While raw output via SDI on the Blackmagic Micro Studio Camera 4K may make the headline, many users will most appreciate an extra 2 stops of exposure sensitivity.
