Welcome to the Blackmagic Camera Setup!
This software package allows you to update your Blackmagic Camera to the latest software release for new features, bug fixes and other enhancements.
The software installer no longer installs the Desktop Video or UltraScope applications and they will need to be downloaded separately from the Blackmagic Design website: https://www.blackmagicdesign.com/support
To use UltraScope via Thunderbolt with Blackmagic Cinema Camera or Production Camera 4K, download and install the Blackmagic UltraScope software. If you want to use Media Express with the supported cameras, download and install the Blackmagic Desktop Video software.
Please ensure that your device is plugged into mains power before running the software update. To update Blackmagic Camera Fiber Converter you will need to ensure that the unit is powered from the camera using the URSA 12V power supply rather than SMPTE fiber during the update.
For updating URSA Mini or URSA Broadcast from Camera 4.0 or above it is advisable to export your presets and LUT’s onto a card as they will be removed during this update.
