FS5 - New firmware fix in February!

Phillip Johnston is reporting this Sony firmware update on his site:

HD Warrior Blog Archiv Sony have admitted problems with the FS5

This is fantastic news. Thank you Sony!

I do have to chuckle though, Sony was able to spot this problem in their labs while some ardent Sony defenders tried their best to state this basic concept:

"Nope, it's the camera operators fault, quit complaining, everything is normal with the FS5"

Thank you Sony again. You were honest with your customers and really moved fast on this one.

Bravo!

Re: FS5 - New firmware fix in February!

thats great news.

I think the confusion was due to the fact many of the posts about fs5 issues were operator error mixed in with the real problems. I know I tried to help people with problems that were 100% operator and got scolded it was a Sony issue and could not be fixed.
