Sony has released new firmware updates for their Sony FS7 and FS7 II camcorders. The new Firmware (4.30 for the FS7 and Firmware version 1.20 for the FS7 II) gives users the ability to alter the recorded ISO when shooting in the Cine-EI mode.
Today Sony have done something quite unique for a camera manufacturer…they have released a new version of their firmware 8 weeks early !!! You may think this is no big deal but if you look at similar updates from some of their rivals this is quite a feat.
Atomos unveiled their latest Firmware Update 9.1 for the Sumo19 HDR monitor/recorder. New functionality includes Quad ISO recording and on-screen selectable output switching, plus 5.7K ProRes RAW recording at up to 30fps with the Panasonic EVA1.
Panasonic just released the latest firmware update 4.0 for the Varicam 35 and HS models. The firmware update is free, and it adds support for the Codex Raw recorder on the Varicam 35, support for anamorphic shooting and image flip on the sub-recorder (the Varicam features a dual recording system).
