Sony Releases Firmware v.2.0 for the Sony F5 and F55 and AXS-R5 recorder:
When you update and use F55/F5 with AXR-R5, you must update R5 to version 2.0 simultaneously. After updating to version 2.0, F55/F5 and R5 must not be downgraded to previous versions.
Free of charge, this major update contains significant new features that will open up many more creative possibilities. This release has over 30 new features, enhancements.
Some of the major updates are:
2K RAW HFR 120fps, 180fps, 240fps:
This release enables new preset HFR fps values. These are 120fps, 180fps, and 240fps when in 2K RAW mode using the optional AXS-R5 RAW recorder.
Using HFR in 2K RAW up to 240fps is full 2K resolution, with no windowing of the image sensor or other compromises as is the case with some competitor cameras.
XAVC in 2K and HD at 120fps
Waveform and Histogram are now supported in the F5, and F55.
False Color is also being introduced specifically for the DVF-EL100 OLED VF and the DVF-L700 viewfinder, monitor. Both the EL100 and the L700 will require a firmware service update at a Sony service facility.
Support for our new B4 two third inch lens adapters.
Fixed frame rate of 24p:
At the request of feature film Cinematographers we are introducing the fixed frame rate of 24p. This is supported in 2K RAW, 4K RAW, and XAVC in 4K
2K RAW and HD simultaneous recording:
You can now enjoy the benefits of simultaneous recording internally to the F5, F55 while recording 2K RAW to the optional AXS-R5 RAW recorder.
In the case of HFR recording, 120fps is supported in simultaneous recording. In other words, you can record to both SxS PRO+ in XAVC HD, and at 2K RAW using the R5 at 120 frames per second. At this time, higher than 120fps in this simultaneous rec mode is not supported.
When HFR is recorded to AXS media in 2K RAW, you can play back the footage at 24p and use the AXS-R5 RAW recorder AUX as HD-SDI output
