NEW Firmware update v1.22 for F5 and F55

[ Edited ]

All,

 

We are releasing an important update for the F5, and F55 cameras. v1.22 addresses an issue found in the HDCAM SR File recording codec during play back.

 

Fix: HDCAM SR File codec

 

We have fixed an issue where frames may not be represented correctly on playback. This will manifest itself in different ways, depending on the software application being used. The video essence however is fine. This firmware update is being issued to address and repair the problem for future recordings.

 

If you have existing SR File recordings that exhibit this issue please contact Sony Product Operational Support Center (POSC) at 1-800-883-6817, and select option 2, 5, 2 on the phone tree.

This firmware can be updated from any existing firmware version of PMW-F55 and PMW-F5 directly.

 

When you update and use F55/F5 with AXS-R5, you must update R5 to V1.21 simultaneously.

Attention:

 

When you update F55 and F5 to V1.22 from V1.15 and earlier, you must do “All Reset” in System menu. Otherwise V1.22 software becomes unstable.

 

If you want to maintain your menu settings before the update, please save “All File” in File menu and load it after updating. If you had already updated F55 and F5 to V1.20 or V1.21 and did “All Reset”, you do not need to do “All Reset” again.

Peter,

There is an issue with the SR viewer that when you get a screen grab from the software a complete blank image appears. FYI

Re: NEW Firmware update v1.22 for F5 and F55

I am not seeing this with 1.5. What OS version are you running? I am testing on 10.8.4 using SR files created with 1.22. Is the png created when this happens?
