PMW-F5 to get 240fps and Anamorphic De-Squueze.

Great news for PMW-F5 owners. The F5 will get the ability to record 2K raw at 240fps (with the R5). In addition it will also get 1.3x Anamorphic De-Sqeeze. Sony have just released an updated firmware timeline. There are no major changes to the timing of the already announced features, but now we can see that in the July release (as well as HDCAM SStP) the cameras will get Reel Number and Camera ID for SxS recordings. In the September release as well as 2K raw, the cameras will get waveform and histogram exposure tools as well as rotary knob audio level setting. Then in the December update we’ll see S&Q motion up to 240fps and monitor LUT’s for both the F5 and F55. Now I also notice something else on the sony chart for the F5 in December— Quad HD XAVC and 50Mb/s simultaneous recording!!! Really, is this correct, will the F5 really get the ability to record 4K XAVC???? I hope so, but somehow I think this is a typo. Lets not get too excited just yet.

Unfortunately for F5 owners they were mistakes in the graphics. The F5 will not get 4K XAVC. It will however still get the 240fps raw capability.

Don't you mean that it won't get 4K XAVC? It has always had 4K raw.

Shame that it isn't being added though. The error rather got a few hopes up!

Your quite right Mike, thanks for picking that up, my post corrected to avoid confusion. It won't get 4K XAVC, it does of course have 4K raw with the R5. 4K XAVC was shown in an incorrect and now replaced upgrade chart.

Yes it's a shame, I didn't think it was correct, but I had my fingers crossed just in case. There are a few rather embarrassed people at Sony keeping a very low profile right now.
