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).

 

Thanks!

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.
