These magic settings are a MUST HAVE.

Don’t take my word for it though. I am biased! Other filmmakers and Sony users have been busy shooting with EOSHD Pro Color 3.0 and Pro LOG. It’s interesting to take a look at some of the reviews, tests and films shot this way.

Sony’s response to PXW-FS5 issues and why I am keeping hold of my camera

Comment on the forum

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.
