HPX300 Firmware Update

Panasonic just released new firmware for the HPX300. There are a couple big updates in there including the FBC (flash band correction) function that Panasonic announced a couple months ago. This function works in 1080/60i and 720/60p, and from my tests it seems to do the job - Watch a video on the Abel blog - New HPX300 Firmware | CineTechnica

Also they have reduced noise in 1080 24p, 25p, and 30p modes. The effect seemed noticeable right away. There are also several other updates including better support for E-Series P2 cards. If you have the HPX300 then download the firmware here - https://eww.pavc.panasonic.co.jp/pro...sk/e/index.htm and read about the other changes they made as well.
