Some very important stuff that was missing from the orignal firmware of the Blackmagic Cinema Camera and the Pocket Cinema Camera has arrived in the latest version of the software
The big ones: Audio Level meters and Time Remaining.
Time Remaining was perhaps the most frustrating omission. Not knowing how much space was left in your storage device meant that you had to rely on guesswork, or be really good at calculating storage times based on bandwidth for a given codec.
Audio Level Meters will be an enormous help to anyone recording sound in sync with video on the camera, and Histogram will be a boon for gauging exposure and lighting.
Here are the details from Blackmagic's support page:
This software package allows you to update your Blackmagic Camera to the latest software release for new features, bug fixes and other enhancements.
