I don't think I've ever seen a firmware update offer so much... like seriously, that's epic!
Cheers Sony.

Re: Sony will release a firmware update to the NEX FS100

I owe the sony f3 but I can say that the fs100 is currently the best price performance camera outthere...
and would be a great to have a fs100 as b camera to the f3...even for just shooting slow motion shots in full hd...it is still worth it...

does this firmware mean it will become a PAL or NTSC selectable? if I buy a PAL version it will work as a NTSC as well...I live in europe but shoot quite a lot NTSC especially the 60p is vital to me...so will this firmware upgrade allow that?

thanks for the info..

Yes, this is what I understand. This will be a unique firmware for PAL and US version, which will include every frame rates.

Re: Sony will release a firmware update to the NEX FS100

This might be a stupid question but I'm assuming there will be PAL video outs as well, right?

"Camera Profile (camera settings can be saved to and loaded from a memory card)."

I wonder if this means I can also NAME the PPs

(I don't want PP1, PP2, etc.......I want Outside Hi lite, Indoor hi contrast, etc)

Re: Sony will release a firmware update to the NEX FS100

Sony reps at F3 and FS100 demo in Bay Area last week in response to a question told the group the FS firmware update would most likely come late Febuary or early March. I certainly hope they were being ultra-conservative with that forecast.

So no 24/30/60 fps for European cameras?

Yes, there will be an upgrade for PAL models. You'll have to look on the Sony Europe site, if I remember correctly.

Sadly, it doesn't really work this way, in my experience with Sony (and particularly the salesgeeks that come to those schmoozers), what they meant by "late February or March" is maaaaybe by late March, but probably not until April. In reality, this means sometime around November 2012 but even then isn't guaranteed.

For my XDCam, I waited probably close to 12 months, and at the point when I'd given up all hope and started looking for alternatives, it just showed up one day. No call, no e-mail... it just appeared on an obscure link on their website. That version was rough, but the better version arrived quickly.

Re: Sony will release a firmware update to the NEX FS100

you don't ask nobody, the answere is on the web page right now: Sony | Micro Site NXCAM & AVCHD

And will be fantastic if they put 120fps at 720p, and HDR system, as you know this camera can record 60fps over 60p with audio, so you can make a system to choose the best exposure for dark areas first and then a second exposure for hightlights areas and melt it in an smart way as in the NEX-5 or nex-vg10, to obtain a 30p HDR with 2 diferent exposures... tada!!!
