NEW firmware update v1.2 Major release

[ Edited ]

All,

 

We are very pleased to announce v1.2 firmware for the F5, F55, and AXS-R5 recorder. This is a major update and includes powerful functionality not previously available. Major features are listed below.

 

It is very important you read the release notes, and follow the instructions carefully.

 

ALL RESET is required following the updates, and AXS-R5 recorder MUST also be updated to the latest version at the same time.

 

Do not operate the AXS-R5 with the v1.2 cameras unless it is updated to the latest version firmware.

 

For AXS-R5 recorder, you MUST update to v1.20 BEFORE you proceed with further updating. Latest firmware update for AXS-R5 recorder is v1.21

 

Please download the v1.20 firmware for the R5 recorder, install then proceed with the new firmware update.

Re: NEW firmware update v1.2 Major release

Thanks! Great!

 

Just to make sure I did get it right:

 

The R5 must have 1.20 (which most will already have in the meantime) and I then have to install 1.21 to the R5 BEFORE installing the 1.2 camera update. Right ?

 

Thanks!

Re: NEW firmware update v1.2 Major release

Is there a app for smartphones and tablets ? I was looking in the manual and release notes but I cannot found a explanation how one gets this remote functions onto the phone or tablet.

 

Where can this information or app be found ?

 

Thanks!

A heads up to all who do not own a Sony EVF and use a third party monitor. It seems Sony has defaulted SDI Sub to the ON position now after reset, good news. However I noticed HDMI out was set to OFF after reset, bad news if you only monitor via HDMI.

Bill, I don't have my F55 in front of me right now but does HDMI actually output anything when camera in base frequency of 24p? This was an issue on previous firmware versions.. same thing with the "analog test out" - it also did not work when camera set to base frequency of 24p.
