Sony PXW-X70 - S-Log2 and S-Log3 Upgrade

I'm an owner and operator of the Sony PXW-X70 camera.  Sony offers users to pay for a upgrade to 4K, which I did.  There is also a pay imaging option upgrade to MPEG HD, which I have not done. 

 

Sony is now introducing the PXW-Z90 camera.  This camera is the same in design as the PXW-X70.  The difference is it has a different sensor, the Exmor RS sensor and it has a different more advanced fast hybrid auto focus system.  The camera comes with both S-Log2 and S-Log3 installed and has in-camera HDR workflow with hybrid log-gamma (HLG). 

 

I have a request in with Sony Engineering to offer a pay S-Log2 and S-Log3 imaging option for the PXW-X70 to users.  As an example, look what Panasonic has done offering a pay V-Log upgrade for $99.00 for the Lumix GH4 users.  This is a competitive business environment and I believe Sony should offer additional firmware support to existing users and not just crank out new equipment.

 

I am but one person in the grand scheme of things, but each customer should be a valued customer in the eyes of Sony.  I know associates who are "Jumping Ship" to other camera manufacturers, based on what I'm talking about here.  I'm not talking about a free firmware imaging option upgrade, I'm talking about a reasonably priced paid upgrade. 

 

I hope that others will contact Sony engineering as I have done to request this upgrade.  I also hope that Sony Support see's this post and passes it on as quality customer feedback.
