I’ve just uploaded a new video to my TEDtv YouTube Channel:

There are issues with using the Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini Recorder video capture device with some Nikon Professional Cameras. With all of my Nikon professional cameras I cannot get the Blackmagic software to recognise the HDMI signal.

The support team at Blackmagic Design asked that I make this video when I reached out to them for support. In their user forum there are others with a similar issue with Nikon cameras.

In this video I demo the device with Nikon D3400 (works), GoPro Hero 4 Silver (works), as well as the Z6 & D850 (do not work). However, by passing the signal through an Atomos Ninja V and then into the Blackmagic USMR it will indeed capture on the Z6 and D850. This is also demonstrated in this video. See below for timestamps.
