Latest Raven Firmware Update


Current Firmware update: 09/09/2022
 

Hey Raven users,


We recently updated the Raven's firmware with fixes to battery drain issues of the Raven. Here is the rundown:

 

App:  3.1.0

  • Improved the power down process to reduce the chance of extra battery drain when powered off and charging
  •  

    During recent testing of the Raven battery, we found that the Raven screen powered off well before the internal USB processor and if the USB charging cable was plugged into the Raven while this processor is still powered, it would continue to run even when the USB charging cable was unplugged. This reduces the battery level while the user assumes the Raven is fully powered off. Users should wait at least 3 seconds after the Raven screen is powered off to ensure the Raven is fully powered off before plugging in the USB charging cable to into the Raven.

  • Fixed issue with occasional failure to wake up when pressing the BACK/HOME button
  •  

    This corrects an issue with powering on the Raven shortly after powering it off. There were instances where the Raven would not power back up if the Back/Home button was pressed too soon after power down. This delay has now been shortened from 5 seconds to ½ a second.

     

    Radio: 4.2.31

  • Added PocketWizard support for Manual Zone D for the upcoming MC2 firmware update (for Einstein flash)
  • MC2 firmware update coming within 1-2 weeks. 
  •  

    Raven users will soon have use of all 4 zones (A-D) on the Raven and Einstein strobe. We are finishing up firmware for the PowerMC2 and working with Paul C Buff on firmware for the Einstein strobe for specific use with the Raven.

     

     

    Previous Update: 3/12/2022


    App 3.0.96:
    • Added Multi-Zone trigger support to Master Camera Trigger Mode

    - This affects only people using remote camera control functions

    - This allows photographers to select more than one zone from A to H for Raven to Raven and A to D for Raven to Plus IIIe/Plus IVe when using the Raven as the transmitter in Master Camera Trigger Mode for remote camera triggering.

    • Added Godox manual power display to match 10.0 = maximum like Profoto
    - When Godox is set as 1st option in Brands, the power levels will now show 10 as full power and 2.0 as minimum power. No longer +0.0 to -8.0. This is to match the newer Godox firmware update for their transmitters which has 10 as maximum power and 2.0 as minimum power. 
    • Added User Interface Lock feature
    - Added to the Power Down slider function
    - This allows photographers to “lock” or “unlock” the User Interface screens to prevent unintentionally changing power levels, settings, or changing screens. Test and Back/Home buttons are not locked as those will still be needed. Learn more at https://fusiontlc.com/pages/oled-touchscreen-and-lithium-ion-battery
    • Added Nikon Z9 support
    • Adjusted pre-flash sensitivity for Profoto TTL on Nikon Mirrorless

    • Added redundant pre-flash for Profoto TTL metering for Nikon
    - Improves reliability
    • Fixed timing for remote camera PING response
    - Only for remote camera control functions
    - Allows the Raven to properly read each zone when consecutive zones are used in Plus IIIe/Plus IVe receiver units. Learn more at https://fusiontlc.com/pages/remote-camera-triggering#pingtest
