Re: Fusion live preview on S8

 

Hi @royalcave50040

Re: Fusion live preview on S8

Yes I know that you officially do not offer downgrade, but since obviously not all testing on your side was properly done, I am kindly asking you that you send me older files for manual upgrade.

Or give me some other useful suggestion what to do. I can not afford to leave my eur 750 camera in the drawer since I can not use it and wait several months if someone will do something.
