what computer did you get?
Standard practice when shooting with Dragonframe and a Canon DSLR is to use manual Nikon/Olympus/Pentax lenses with an adapter, so there is no lens control, focus and aperture can only be set on the lens itself. The camera body, or Dragonframe, can only change the exposure time. The main thing is that DF can click the shutter, which doesn't involve the lens. So the manual lens shouldn't be a problem with a Blackmagic camera. The difference is that the Canon and Nikon DSLRs send a live view (and the final hi res image) to DF via the USB cable, they don't require HDMI or Thunderbolt.
Good to hear you got it working Demian!

I believe the reason that it isn't working has something to do with the black magic having only manual lenses. Dragon can't hook up to it because there is no motor in the camera to control. Though I don't know why you wouldn't be able to get an image in Dragon and focus manually.
I have a very foggy recollection of being introduced to the black magic, but i do remember something about its limitations associated to being manual that I thought to myself definitely wouldn't fly with Dragon.
Someone mentioned contacting the Dragon team directly. I might too- i really want to use that camera!
