Re: Firmware 1.1 and S-log available June 1

As I said in an earlier post, the new firmware works fine with both my Sony adapters (SD and Memory Stick) so I'm sure it was tested with them.

Re: Firmware 1.1 and S-log available June 1

For anyone that is nervous about the upgrade. I was able to install the firmware on an e-films MxR card (with a PNY 32GB class 10 SDHC card inside) and afterwards was able to record and play back on the e-CLR and the MxR cards with the PNY 32GB cards inside.

So in my experience I have had no ill effects with the install using the MxR cards nor have I had any issues after the upgrade with the MxR cards.

That being said, I had a funny thing happen immediately after the camera was upgraded where on the reboot nothing happened. I pulled the power supply and battery and the powered it up again and had no issues. I'm going to attribute that to some weird firmware strangeness and the camera waking up dumb, no issues afterwards though, and like I said all sdhc sxs card adapters are currently working. I'll post an update if something changes.

Just upgraded without any issues.
I did have some problems accessing the download site using Safari. No problem with Firefox.

Updated yesterday with Hoodman adapter and Lexar SD cards.

No probs with update, and no problems rolling a little footage so far.

Re: Firmware 1.1 and S-log available June 1

Have any of you guys gotten the S&Q dial working? There was a thread that said you need to hold the cancel button down (or push S&Q and cancel at the same time?) to enable it for menus and again to return to S&Q mode.

Re: Firmware 1.1 and S-log available June 1

Just tried it. Yeah you have to hold the cancel button in then tap the s&q button. It then pops up and says "s&q dial: jog dial mode" Tap the s&q button again (while still holding the cancel button) and it changes to "s&q dial: s&q dial mode" a little convoluted but i prefer that dial to the menu dial in the back.

Weird, it worked with the MXR adaptor and a Sandisc 32gb, but the Sony MEAD adaptor wouldn't run the upgrade. Anyway, the firmware is updating now...

Re: Firmware 1.1 and S-log available June 1

I put the card in and it does not see the firmware upgrade? Is there some secret?

Re: Firmware 1.1 and S-log available June 1

Never mind I got the firmware to the root directory. But my Hoodman Raw sxsxsdhc adapters do not work. The Hoodman 16 gb sdhc 10 raw steel cards do work but in my e-film MxR adapter cards and my Transcend sdhc class 10-16gb cards work fine.

I am returning my Hoodman card adapters to Hoodman for replacements.

Re: Firmware 1.1 and S-log available June 1

A flashing "Rec 2" comes up screen left of the HD SDI output while I am recording.
I can not get it to go away with display mode. It stays on flashing all the time while in record.
Distracting and annoying.
Anybody have any ideas on how to disable this?
Why does it flash Rec "2" ?
It does not change depending on what card I am recording onto or what record button I push.
Thanks Sam

Re: Firmware 1.1 and S-log available June 1

You have SDI Rec Control enabled in the Video Set menu. The camera can send a "record" signal down the SDI to trigger external recorders.
