Blackmagic Camera 4.7 Update - RAW Output for Micro Studio Camera

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

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. The update makes these already flexible cameras even more powerful.
