4) Lumina Camera LED Indicator
Lumina has two LEDs, the camera LED and the microphone LED. In our latest firmware 2206290301, the microphone LED is set to never turn on. This is because in the previous firmware, we had a known issue with MacOS Monterey where the LED would always be on even if not in use. It happened on some computers and not others. This caused confusion with some users (wondering if the mic was in fact on when in reality it wasn't), so in our latest firmware we turned it off altogether.
5) Difference between Firmware and Software
Firmware is the program inside the camera. Software is the Lumina Studio App you installed on the computer to help control the colors and use the AI features.
Updating both the firmware and software regularly is essential to getting the latest bug fixes and ensuring they work properly.
