    I'm guessing yes, because when I updated my firmware to the IPP2 Preview build, it notified me that my calibration was invalid and had to blackshade, or words to that effect.

For reference, on my camera, if I crank it to 12800 and see a blue artificat that kind of looks like a flare, I know I need to refresh my blackshade.

    P.S. Just a heads up for those who don't know, the file name for each individual black shade has all the relevant metadata for the blackshade. It'll start with the shutter speed (or auto if it's an auto cal), then give the temperature, then the date and time of the calibration.
    Excellent advice. Thank you. How many passes should I perform on the manual black shade? I believe it allows You to choose up to 4

    No worries! Glad to be of help!

    And I normally use all 4 black shades, set to different shutter speeds or temperatures.

    Meaning I'll have one for 24fps, one for 60, and one for 96, and then either a second 24 FPS at a different temperature, or 120fps if I think I'll go higher than 96.
    Cheers,
