WF is excellent news, Any chance on spot meter? Is quick and easy to read over skin, grey or white card?

Re: Update - Important information

I would like to request AES42 support - it should be pretty easy, as it's AES with Phantom Power.  This will enable the use of digital microphones, such as the Neumann KMR 81-D.

WF is great news. I suppose there's not much chance it's RGB?

Speed up the menu.


It's always jumping to the next point and way too slow. Probably because its loading the whole info directly instade of only showing only the menu piont.


After a facture reset, because we wanted to start our project with clip Clip001 (there should be other ways!), 10-15min to set all the things in the menu to starts shooting.

For two reasons. The menu is not shrinkable and it's slow.


Slow Thumbnail's


If the script comes to me "what was the last clip" and I clip there I just too slow.


Menu only on the Video out

if an AC want to see some infos the dop has the whole VF full is infos. 




I don't konw when the camera is running the dop tells me.


Playback rewind should stop at the end of the clip


is that a walkman function

agree with the slow menus and really agree that clip naming / numbering needs to be user definable, but for now before you do a factory reset and once you have settings/menus how you like, put an SD card in the side, format it then got to the 'File' menu, 'All File' Option, then 'File ID', enter a name such as 'Base Setting', then go back one level and push the 'Save SD Card' option.


Then when you do the factory reset to reset the clip numbering, you can go to 'File'->'All File'->'Load SD Card' and choose the file you saved earlier and all your menu settings should be back to how you like them!


But Sony, please fix the clip naming / numbering soon.
