Merci a mes amis Canadiens!

In English that translates to "Thanks, eh."

Downloaded from Canadian site but may not get around to installing until tomorrow.

I updated mine tonight. Everything went fine.

This may be a silly question, but do we need to uninstall the S-Log key before upgrading the firmware?

Nope, just leave it on there.

Upgraded fine as well.

Used a Sonnet SxS SDHC adapter with 32gb SDHC card. No problems at all

Please excuse my ongoing ignorance, but why is it good that we can now access the HDSDI A port whilst using s-log. This was apparently a very popular request, according to Sony's website.

That allows you to send a LOG 4:2:2 signal to your external recorder and still use the monitor port with a viewing LUT to help judge exposure and general look of the scene being captured. Before this update the camera wasn't 4:2:2 recorder friendly.

Thank you.

Do you need to install 1.2 before 1.3?

Chris Medico January 14th, 2012 01:39 PM

Re: Firmware 1.3 is out
 
Nope. Just install v1.3 from a card and you are good to go.

Be sure to use a power supply or a FULLY charged battery. If the camera looses power in the middle of the upgrade it could mean a trip to Sony for repair.
