Will the zoom control work with BMPCC 4K using the ATEM Production Studio 4K? And if so, would that work with Optical HDMI?
Asked by: David
I understand from the helpdesk at BH that this lens, when mounted to the bmd micro 4k g2, and connected to the atem mini extreme, via a single optical hdmi cable with arc, that you can control focus, zoom, color correction plus transmission of video. So no other cable is required besides power. Is this not true?
