EX-3 Firmware 1.25

I just got my EX-3 back from the Sony Factory Service Center L.A. Calif. with a firmware update to 1.25.
I can not find any info on this 1.25 up-date for a EX-3 but I find it for a Ex-1 or R.
The camcorder I thought had a display problem, when I selected expand focus while recording in 30p the display would show a brief green overlay in the display then go to the correct color view of the expand focus area. I sent it in for repair of the above problem and also asked for and update also.
When I got it back it was noted that the expand focus green overlay was normal when recording in 30p and updated to 1,25.
I checked the camcorder and in the menu it shows 1.25.
Can anyone help as to is this the correct firmware

Jeff

Re: EX-3 Firmware 1.25

To my knowledge, the latest EX1 and EX1R firmware is actually 1.30 and it's not available on the North American XDCAM Microsite.

Latest firmware for the EX3 I could find is 1.16. I'd be curious, if this firmware supports XQD cards, that means it's the absolute latest.

Re: EX-3 Firmware 1.25

Hi,
The last time I had the firmware up date was last march and it was 1.18 and again I could not find any info for that one too, I called the 800 number and talked with their tect support and could not get anything from them then so I don't expect much when I call on Monday.
I did have an e-mail from the tect working on my camcorder who at first did say he would update this camcorder to 1.30 but got another e-mail shortly after saying he was incorrect as to the update number and it would be 1.25 not 1.30

Well you beat me to the answer, I just got off the phone with Sony and this is the same as I got from them.

Thank You for your input and the PDF.

Re: EX-3 Firmware 1.25

Great - Guess the Zoom and focus box only works with the original supplied lens and not a B4 lens via an adapter. Cannot find the 1.25 firmware update on the Sony UK site.

Re: EX-3 Firmware 1.25

Huh... 1.20 for EX3s is equivalent to 1.30 for EX1s and EX1Rs, since that update introduced XQD support.

I found through a Google Search that EX3 version 1.20 may be available on the Chinese XDCAM minisite. Use it at your own risk.
