BMPCC Firmware Update 1.9.3

Although I am a little late reporting this (due to my involvement in upgrading my edit bay), there recently was a BMPCC firmware update to version 1.9.3! (Applause goes here). Yes, some of the main gripes about this camera have been addressed. No more shooting blindly and not knowing whether you are about to run out of space on your media card. There is also less guessing on the audio as well as a histogram on the display. Those folks at Blackmagic Design are proving that they have a desire for more satisfied customers wanting to produce quality motion pictures without breaking the bank when purchasing a camera. I’m still waiting for mine to show up that I ordered from B&H Photo Video. Of course, it was on backorder, but it was nice that they decided to still honor the temporary low price, making it entirely worth the wait. In fact, I am counting the days. September 11 will make 6 weeks from the day I ordered it. Anybody else take delivery on one from B&H yet?
