Blackmagic Design releases Blackmagic Camera 7.2.1 Update adding some minor improvements to their flagship URSA Mini 12K camera.

Furthermore, these minor improvements for URSA Mini Pro 12K include better time remaining readout and adjustments to the focus assist feature.

Although this is just an incremental update, the top-end Blackmagic camera did get some major improvements and new frame rates in the previous firmware update 7.0, and other significant updates in the more recent Camera 7.2 update.
