Attention Mac Users:

Due to a recent Mac OS X update, users of Solo 8 may experience performance degradation in both preview and recording modes when using the camera connected through USB3.0 under OS X Yosemite. Our engineering team is working to fix this issue. We expect Mac users will soon be able to enjoy the same outstanding performance from the Solo 8 again as they did prior to this Apple OS X update.
