Re: AX100 Firmware 3.0 is out today!!

Not familiar with Respeeder but I have Twixtor for creating slow motion. Would be great if there's a noticeable improvement there. Even on static scenes, if I crop in to a ridiculous size, like SD, I can tell that the 100Mbps is less pixelated than the 60Mbps. But I think for 95% of what I typically do with the camera, nobody will know the difference. Great little camera that fits in my dSLR bag along with the 6D. (Man, I haven't picked up my XF305 in awhile now.)

Re: AX100 Firmware 3.0 is out today!!

I agree that the difference is less obvious than I expected, and much less obvious when viewing video rather than screen captures.

I have the X70, and since its upcoming 4K upgrade has been announced as 60 Mbps rather than 100, these clips raise the likelihood (pending seeing actual footage) of my purchasing that upgrade from 40% to 50%. In other words, it's not a deal breaker for me given the things I shoot.

Had the X70 4K upgrade been for 4:2:2, I would then say the differences would be more visible. But then, at only 60 Mbps, the compression ratio would be quite high.

Seriously You need a 4k monitor
There's a reason the 100mbs is only available in uhd
You wouldn't shoot hd to view on a uhd monitor and viceversa

I have also uploaded a screen shot of the toy train that is cropped in quite a bit.

I took 4 screen shots of the tree clip and it does consistently show that the left side holds up better when I magnify in. The 60Mbps looks more "muddier" and pixelated.

Thanks for that Mark - yes it does show a marked improvement, interesting!
