Re: Announcements - Odyssey7, New Firmware

Dear Patrick,

Our Number One Priority for our next firmware release is to support recording 4K in a compressed codec.

Part of this project involved creating support for recording, in a compressed codec, up to 1080p60.

This part of the project is done, but we finished this part too late for inclusion in 2.10.141, which we released yesterday, as the thorough testing would have delayed this release.

I asked our team yesterday if we can get the testing done for our next release, and I am hopeful that we can.

--------------

Later, we will definitely be adding a RGB 4:4:4 12-Bit codec, for free, in the Odyssey7Q.
(This codec will not be included in the Odyssey7.)

-------------

But, there is a way to get Apple ProRes 4:4:4:4 (one example of an RGB 4:4:4 codec) right now.

Record in DPX, a full uncompressed recording of the output of a camera, which is 100% perfect.

Then, using DaVinci Resolve Lite (free), use the DPX file as input and render out to any codec of your choice.

This will be essentially the same as if the camera was capable of recording Apple ProRes 4:4:4:4.

I hope this helps.

Respectfully,

Dear Scott,

I am sorry it took me so long to answer your question.

I needed to get confirmation from our engineers, to ensure that I answered your question accurately,

Our next firmware release, which is expected to be numbered 2.11,xxx will add the following recording mode for the C500:

4K (4096 x 1080) at 120 fps, will be recorded in Raw, in any Odyssey7Q with our C500 Option.

(120 fps is actually 119.88 fps)

You have not stated which of the two 120 fps formats that you want.

The second one is 120 fps in HD.

We have two choice for recording HD in 120 fps, in Apple ProRes 422 (HQ) or in full uncompressed.

We do not feel anyone would want full uncompressed HD at 120 fps due to the size of the files.

We are not ready to announce recording HD in 120 fps.


Respectfully,

Re: Announcements - Odyssey7, New Firmware

Hi dan,Ii wrote into the website but have received no answer. Do you guys have an estimate on when you will add a vectorscope? That was in the original literature when I bought this but it seems to have fallen to the side with the new features that are being added.

Also on the table mount that you guys offer, mine has a lot of play in it so that it wobbles back and forth about 1/4" is that normal? I would expect that a piece of custom metal that costs 80 bucks would be set to exact tolerances, is there a reason for this "play"?

If we are going to talk about new options is there anything planned for the sony a7s?

Re: Announcements - Odyssey7, New Firmware

Dear Nick,

I do not have an estimate of when we will add the Vectorscope, sorry.

Yes, other priorities got in the way. We definitely plan on adding this feature.


I will the discuss Table Stand problem you are having with our manufacturing team.

And we will correct whatever is wrong.

Please call me at: seven one nine -- nine three zero -- one three seven six


We will make an announcement about the A7s later.

We love this new camera and want to support it as soon as possible.

Respectfully,

Re: Announcements - Odyssey7, New Firmware

I just downloaded and installed the firmware. I'm trying to play back some clips that were recorded to my ssd's prior to the firmware upgrade...does that matter?

I ask because I'm getting an error message:

Can't play=6 check ssd's

I have 50 clips and can't play back any of them...and I could and I did with the previous firmware.

Re: Announcements - Odyssey7, New Firmware

Dear Robert,

Yes, that is the case.

The new Playback Features require clips that have been recorded using this firmware.

Re: Announcements - Odyssey7, New Firmware

Hi Dan,

Thanks for the firmware update, I'm looking forward to installing it.

On an unrelated note, can we expect any protective SSD cases soon? I, for one, am not so keen on leaving them in the open and is currently somewhat of an issue for our shooting locales.

Thanks,
David
