AX100 Firmware 3.0 is out today!!

Wahoo....we get 100 MBp/s today!!

Looks like Sony has improved the auto focus even more too.

System Software Update version 3.00 (Microsoft Windows) : Download : Sony Asia Pacific

Looks like Sony Pacific Asia is the first to post it. For some reason, they always beat Sony US to the punch.

Enjoy!! Thank you SONY!!!

Very cool.

This guy is still on my radar as a potential upgrade path.

Re: AX100 Firmware 3.0 is out today!!

Has anyone done this upgrade yet? How did it go? I'm doing video with the AX100 tomorrow and would like to have this, but of course concerned that doing an upgrade just before a shoot can be a bad idea.

I upgraded...seemed to all work well, but I haven't had a chance to test yet. You have to reset time and date as well as any custom settings you had..... Now I've got to buy some faster chips so it will work at the 100mbs speed...

Re: AX100 Firmware 3.0 is out today!!

Performed the update with no issues. When selecting the 100Mbps mode of 4K, I get a message saying

"Use UHS-I U3 compatible memory card."

My SanDisk Extreme PLUS 80MB/s U1 SDXC card is not compatible. Hopefully some local vendor has what I need so I can check out the upgraded 4K tomorrow.

Re: AX100 Firmware 3.0 is out today!!

I"m using Kingston 64gb "sda3" cards with 90mbs read and 80mb write speed, would that one be too slow as well for 100mbs? I don't have any issues on my gh4 which does have a 100mbs bitrate.

Thanks Cliff! Autofocus has been SO bad with the AX100. I've very happy that this update is available, will download and install asap.

Re: AX100 Firmware 3.0 is out today!!

Did someone using a PAL model already do the update downloaded from this link ? Does it work flawlessly on the PAL model. Is the HDMI port still only enabled during recording of 1080i/p or is it now also enabled while recording 4K ?

Just installed it, the only thing I hate is that it also resets everything to factory default so I have to customize the camera again.
