Well, this is interesting. With all the talk of cameras getting firmware updates this year in order to give them the capability to be used as a webcam, we’ve forgotten all about the other devices into which you can plug them. Devices like monitor recorders.
Blackmagic has released a new firmware update for its Video Assist monitors allowing you to use them as regular USB capture devices (like a webcam) over its Type-C connection. So, if you’ve got a Blackmagic Video Assist monitor, it doesn’t matter whether your camera has this feature or not anymore.
