X70 Firmware: 3.0 vs 3.01

What's different about the v. 3.01 firmware compared to v. 3.0.?
Is this an update worth making??

I think the only difference is the installer. Some people had problems with v3.0

Re: X70 Firmware: 3.0 vs 3.01

I'm reading about 4K 100Mbps, my upgrade seemed to only do it to 60Mbps. Does anyone know would I have needed to use a separate/newer 4k upgrade install, or is there a firmware type update I can look to to update it?

If you had firmware 2.0 and the 4K upgrade installed, then the 3.0 firmware bumped the 4K options from 60 to 100Mbps.

3.02 is the firmware that enables 150Mbps UHD 50p/60p 10 bit 4:2:2. :-)

I wonder if someone could hack firmware...I know the Nikonians site had Nikon firmware hacks for video upgrades, and I saw someone hacked an A7s once!

I think Paul is messing with us, thus the smiley after his post ;-)
