Details Firmware Update NEX-FS100 (Early 2012)

Click here for more information about the Sony NEX-FS100

Information about the first firmware update for the Sony NEX-FS100.
Looks very promising and I'm especially looking forward to the additional 4x and 8x Expanded Focus magnification (with selectable focus area) and that the camera will work on both 50 and 60hz systems!

Scheduled for early 2012. No cost. You will download package from FS100 webpage, connect PC to camera via USB and run user installable update.

Additional Camera Features (subject to change):

1.    Added 50Hz recording system (PAL): 1920x1080 50p, 50i, 25p and 1280x720 50p.
2.    Camera Profile (camera settings can be saved to and loaded from a memory card).
3.    Additional 4x and 8x Expanded Focus magnification: (with user selectable focus area).
4.    Selectable ISO or GAIN sensitivity display.
5.    Selectable Focus indication in FEET or METERS (E-mount lens only).
6.    Selectable Shutter indication as EXPOSURE TIME or SHUTTER ANGLE.
7.    Added the following Aspect-Ratio markers: 2.35:1, 1.85:1 and 1.66:1.
8.    Display ON/OFF button enables Zebra and/or Histogram overlay onto video output.
9.    Compatible with the new A-Mount to E-Mount adaptor, model LA-EA2. One push Auto-IRIS and Continuous 15-point, Phase-Detection Auto-Focus operation with most Alpha A-Mount lenses is available. Lens metadata is displayed onscreen and stored real time to image file.
