FS5 Auto ND

I've upgraded to version 2 firmware and I was trying to enable Auto ND.

I followed the instructions in the V2 manual but Auto ND is still disabled in the menu.

Has anyone had any success with this?

Re: FS5 Auto ND

Have you got the switches on the side of the camera set to ND and Variable and the ND filter in?

Re: FS5 Auto ND

Yep, done by the book.

Preset/Variable = Variable
ND Filter Dial = 2

Re: FS5 Auto ND

Sorry if this is obvious...but you have to assign a button (within the Camera Setup Menu functions) so that Auto ND can be switched On or Off - and then activate it by turning it on! Have you done this?

As an aside, I currently use the button called Picture Profile by Sony - as I almost always shoot with Doug Jensen's 'Vortex FS5 Pro' profile now/rarely have need to change that. I should also add that I rarely use this new Auto ND feature (or indeed Auto anything), much preferring to adjust manually with the original Variable ND feature - adjusting exposure at any chosen Iris setting via the scroll wheel on the left hand, controls side of the camera. Superb way to shoot!

No I haven't done that Andy. I don't recall seeing that in the release notes either.

By the way, where can I find details if Doug's profile?

Re: FS5 Auto ND

Well that's why you can't get the Auto ND to work then!

More info about Picture Profiles here. There are other threads about Picture Profiles - and indeed anything you want to use/learn about on your FS5. The simple to use Forum Search function is your friend :-)

Picture Profiles for FS5.
