Access Firmware Update

 

EVF-V70 OLED Electronic Viewfinder Support
This optional EVF-V70 OLED Electronic Viewfinder is now supported by the camera, offering industry-standard operability and quality. The 1920x1080 resolution currently outclasses many competitors, helping to make 4K video production easier.

Shutter Angle Priority
A constant shutter angle can now be maintained, regardless of any other camera settings being changed.

Zebra Range Expanded Below 65%
The range of the Zebra 1 setting has been expanded to between 5% (±5%) and 95% (±5%) in steps of 5%. Previously, the Zebra 1 setting range was between 70% (±5%) and 95% (±5%).

The range of the Zebra 2 setting has been expanded to between 5% and 100% in steps of 5%. Previously, the Zebra 1 setting range was between 70% and 100%.

While higher numbers can help facilitate correct overall scene exposure, helping to prevent over-exposure, the expanded range in the lower end can help correctly expose a variety of skin tones.

2K Crop Audio Recording
Audio can now be recorded when the camera is set in 2K crop mode. Audio must be recorded in the following combinations with a resolution of 2048x1080/1920x1080:
 

System Frequency Frame Rate S&F Frame Rate
59.94Hz 59.94P
29.97P

Built-in Mic Audio Off
The internal microphone on the camera body can now be turned off.

WFT-E8 Wireless File Transmitter Support
The optional WFT-E8 Wireless File Transmitter is now supported, adding wireless operation, metadata input and speedy image transfer from the camera, while offering expanded versatility with an enhanced user interface.

Dual Pixel CMOS AF Function
The camera can now take advantage of the Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology when used with the CINE-SERVO 17-120mm (EF-mount) and COMPACT SERVO 18-80mmm lenses.

Grip Zoom Function
The zoom functions of the CINE-SERVO 17-120mm (EF-mount), CINE-SERVO 50-1000 (EF-mount) and the COMPACT-SERVO 18-80mm lenses can now be controlled directly from the camera’s grip unit.

Auto Iris and Push Iris Support
The Auto Iris and Push Iris functions will now work when the camera is used with the CINE-SERVO 50-1000mm, CINE-SERVO 17-120mm (EF) and COMPACT SERVO 18-80mm lenses. The Auto Iris feature allows the camera to automatically adjust to maintain proper exposure. The Push Iris feature allows the camera operator to temporarily take control and adjust the aperture (f/stop) for an optimal exposure.

Peripheral Illumination Correction
The camera can now collect Peripheral Illumination Correction data when used with the EF24-105mm f/4L IS II USM lens. This allows the camera to automatically adjust the picture to correct for corner shading, helping to maintain consistent brightness across the image area and reduce vignetting.
