Firmware 1.1 and S-log available June 1

Here from Sony...

INTRODUCTION OF THE NEW CBK-RGB01 4:4:4 RGB AND S-LOG OUTPUT OPTIONAL SOFTWARE FOR PMW-F3K/L
TYPE: INTRODUCTION
Sony is pleased to announce the introduction of the CBK-RGB01 Optional Firmware Upgrade for the
PMW-F3 XDCAM EX 35mm Camcorder. This new upgrade enables the following functions:
1. S-Log gamma
2. 3G-SDI output
3. Dual Link RGB444 video output
4. User LUTs
5. Pre-loaded LUTs
RGB 4:4:4 Output
RGB 4:4:4 1080 23.98/ 25/ 29.97PsF signal is available over an HD-SDI dual-link interface or 3G HD-SDI
output (menu defined), allowing the use of an external recorder such as the SR-R1 SRMemory Recorder
for the highest quality output for VFX works such as Chroma-key, compositing, and CGI. The Dual Link
HD-SDI option enables 10-bit RGB 23.98/25/29.97PsF or 10 bit 4:2:2 108050P/59.94P uncompressed
external recording – ideal for integration with high quality production workflows such as HDCAM SR.
S-Log Gamma
S-Log mode is available with a wide dynamic range (800%) in the RGB 4:4:4 10-bit signal.
Built in LUTs
Retain the maximum dynamic range from shadow details to highlight. Exactly the same S-Log workflow
as for high-end products such as the Sony F-35.
LUT (Look Up Table)
LUTs can be applied to HD-SDI output and SxS recording off-line. User-defined LUTs (created by CVP
file editor) can be stored by using an SxS card. LUTs can be used for off-line edit with the SxS
recorded content. Users can also transfer user-defined LUTs from one camera to another for ease of
set up.
*
This new software upgrade option requires the installation of v1.10 operational firmware for the PMWF3K/
L. The PMW-F3K/L v1.10 firmware is user installable via an SxS card, and downloadable, along with
instructions, from the Sony ServicesPlus website: https://www.servicesplus.sel.sony.com/sonysoftware.aspx
*
List Price Qty Available
CBK-RGB01 - 4:4:4 RGB and S-Log output option software for PMW-F3K/L $ 4,440 - 1 June, 2011
Features and specifications are preliminary and subject to change without notice.

Re: Firmware 1.1 and S-log available June 1

Did this info come from a Sony USA source?

I'm a little irked at the rollout of the SLog upgrade. No dates, confusing pricing (I've heard $3300, $3600, now $4400 all from trusted sources, two of which were Sony). Hopefully it's $4400 Canadian? Australian?

I'll let the fact that back in November it was slated for April slide...nobody seems to remember that bullet point except me I think.

For your info, the Canadian dollar is stronger than the the US one in the moment. I hope for you that's NOT 4400$ CDN ;-)

Haven't been paying attention. I knew somebody would take that one and run with it.

It doesn't look to be posted yet. I did not receive any update from Sony on that yet. Hopefully in a couple of hours it will be up.

Good news and bad news. Upgrade went fine. All my MXM adapters now no longer work in my F3.

Now that sucks.

What happens? Do you get an error or does the camera not recognize them?

Re: Firmware 1.1 and S-log available June 1

Nothing at all happens when I put them in with the SDHC cards in them. I've found if I put the adapter into the SxS slot without the SDHC card inside, then slide the card into the adapter, they are recognised. Not sure if reliability is affected yet. Rebooting dismounts them again.
