HM-600/650 Firmware v3.0 update

Great news: HD Warrior Blog Archiv Great news for JVC GY-HM600/650 owners…”FW v3 50Mbps”

50Mbps recording @50/60p after a free firmware update in May. Very happy about this!

Re: HM-600/650 Firmware v3.0 update

The link I posted above:
"“The virtually lossless 50Mbps XHQ 60p recording mode is commonly found in DSLRs, and we’re pleased to add it to our 600 Series cameras"

Re: HM-600/650 Firmware v3.0 update

Thanks. I don't know how I missed that. I skim-read it twice. :)

Anyway, that is good news, especially after JVC said said they wouldn't be able to add 50p/60p to the 600/650.

Re: HM-600/650 Firmware v3.0 update

No love from the update for my 650. The camera won't take the upgrade file.

I get all the way down to "Put in the card". I put it in #2. Brief red flash, then green on outside status light.

Then nothing.

Instructions say a blank SDHC card. I tried a card erased in my mac and when that didn't work, I formatted it in the camera and tried again.

There are 600 and 601 files in the download, but no 650 file. Is that the problem?

Still at 0205

Re: HM-600/650 Firmware v3.0 update

Thanks Peter,

Every page I saw said 600/650 but only took you to the 600 sites. I finally called the place I bought the 650 and they had the 650 firmware link on their site.

PS: 600 firmware won't work on a 650.

Regards,

Ty Ford

There stands for GY-HM600 a new Firmware V 3.1 at JVC. Can find no change in menus, what things are the adjustments?

Re: HM-600/650 Firmware v3.0 update

The 3.0.1 firmware seems to be a maintenance update according to the JVC download page.

For the 650E:
Maintenance update. Add new features (e.g. AF Speed menue, Add RTP/RTSP and Zixi into Live Streaming Type.......)
JVCPro-MSIS


For the 600E:
Maintenance update. Add new features (e.g. AF Speed menue..)
JVCPro-MSIS

Re: HM-600/650 Firmware v3.0 update

Yesterday on JVC download page was firmware 3.01. Today is just update firmware 3.0. Is something wrong with firmware 3.01?

Re: HM-600/650 Firmware v3.0 update

Version 3.03 firmware has appeared on the download page now !

Bit too early to expect even more functionality, seems to just be fixes.

Also v5 of 'LST1424-001D-M.pdf' User Manual is available, at least in English, presumably including some of the recently added functions.

Re: HM-600/650 Firmware v3.0 update

Does anyone know if you can go back to the previous firmware version? I have the 600u and currently have v. 0400. My SD files are not compatible with my NLE which is Edius 6.08. HD files are fine and JVC has no fix at this time. Also does anyone have a link to the previous version which I think is 0306? Thanks.
