Re: FDR-AX53 - FW1.02 is out

Actually, I use my two 53's in auto mode now - I use spot focus and have tested on several shoots, comparing manual focus work and touch focus - basically, it works fine for me - I set the AGC limit to 6dB and have iris on the lens - so with zebras and peaking on, I can tweak the exposure and see the focus peaking guide.

All this said, I shoot live recording sessions with Soloists, Quartets to full Operas, Jazz sessions and so on, so the long record times/battery life are perfect for this...

AX53 might be tiny but the quality out of the box is really something, the Timecode and User Bit is brilliant, I'm beginning to prefer it to my AX100 :-(

"I" would not update the firmware - but that's just me. I also think you will only get cams with FW1.01 or later these days.

Re: FDR-AX53 - FW1.02 is out

All 7 of the new cameras arrived; AX-53 (x2), AX-100 (x1), X-3000 (x4). They all had the latest firmware installed. The AX-53 takes about 2 revolutions of manual focus to go near-to-far. I'm curious to see if there's any difference between 60Mbps and 100Mbps in 1080p 120fps mode, and how the hi-speed footage compares to the AX-100 set up for 720p 120fps.
