BL4s camera control unit replacement

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,


The footage/fps readouts on the camera control panel on my BL4s are dead (the unit still turns the camera on and off, just lost the numbers).


I managed to find a camera control unit on ebay but from a BL3 that works (albeit reading in meters).


Does anyone know if replacing the current unit with this one from the older model might harm the camera? (Had a look in Jon Fauer's book but nothing is said about cross compatibility on these units).

In case anyone ever stumbles across this looking for an answer to a similar question... I replaced the unit with one from a BL3 and all seems to be working fine.
