A great feature few have really talked about so far is that the Panasonic GH5 will allow LUTs to be loaded onto the camera.
At NAB 2016, Sony announced the free version 2.0 firmware upgrade for the FS5 and the paid RAW update. This will enable 4K 60fps RAW and 1080/240fps RAW via 3G SDI to the Odyssey 7Q+ external recorder.
The Canon C300 Mark II appears to have a firmware bug. This will need a fix from Canon if the C300 Mark II is to be completely bullet-proof on a shoot.
Highlights burn to black in certain situations (as with car headlights or the sun).
Friday 7am London time sees the release of a firmware update for the Sony FS5 which optimises the performance of internal recording, fixing the issues spotted by early adopters of the camera including myself (Andrew Reid) and Paul Antico.
Last week I had an insight into just how responsive Sony are becoming in rolling out support for their cameras. As users like myself and Paul Antico discovered soon after the FS5 was released the image had some issues. The very week I bought my camera Sony were in touch by email – I was then tasked to shoot some tests and send the XAVC footage to their engineers in Japan so they could work on analysing the problem. The detective work complete, Sony have now just released a statement saying they’ve identified the bugs and will squash these in upcoming firmware updates.
Sony’s goal is to release the firmware at the end of February 2016.
