Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

Actually I don't see it.  So either I'm not looking in the right place or it's not visible because I don't have an adequate memory card installed?  I did confirm with Sony that the circle next to the 4K in the System menu does confirm 4k license is installed.

Ok, Mark, the 4K license is installed, good.

 

Now, go to the System/Rec Format submenu.  You should see SxS Format to the right, click the menu wheel twice and you should see your list of options.

 

The XAVC 4K and QFHD Class480 options should no longer be greyed out.  I don't think it is dependent on the particular cards you have installed.  The options are still available on my F55 with no cards in the slots.

 

Cheers,
Will

Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

Not yet.  The camera is only at v5.0.  So will have have to first update to v6, then go to v8.  I can't wait!  Haha

Oh, well, I understand your anticipation.

Remember to do your All Resets after each upgrade.

Enjoy.

Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

Hi Peter,

 

Another job well done. Will we be seeing a Version 9 firmware for the F5/55 in the future?

 

If you could work on firmware for the viewfinder to apply LUTs in S&Q and then be able to change the false colour between S-Log 2 & 3 then that would finish the camera off nicely. Even if this is a paid for upgrade I believe it would be popular.

 

Anything else is a bonus. Cheers

Re: NEW Version 8 firmware

ok after recording a few interviews in 4k UHD 480 I inserted the SxS card into the reader and see the clips in the Content Browser, but trying to import into FCPX I don't see the clips.  Is there something different that I need to update to be able to see them?
