Sneak Peek: Sony F5 / F55 Firmware Version 7

Sony has done a great job of releasing updates on a regular basis. This time, they have expanded the functionality of the quick menu, implemented Rec. 2020 colorspace (the native colorspace for 4K Ultra HD) and expanded the options available for simultaneous recording. Here is a quick rundown of features in the new F5 / F55 firmware version 7.

Quick Menu

Implementing Rec. 2020


F55 Firmware 7 Color Gamut

In addition to the existing color spaces, Sony is implementing the ITU-R BT. 2020 (Rec. 2020) standard, the native color space of new generation 3840 x 2160 4K Ultra HD.

Expanded options for simultaneous recording


F55 Firmware 7 Simultaneous Recording

Due to popular demand from documentary production needing to shoot 59.94i HD with 59.94p 4K Sony is implementing simultaneous recording to the same SxS Pro+ card of MPEG2 50Mbps 4:2:2 and 10 bit 4:2:2 4K XAVC in either 3840 x 2160 or 4096 x 2160. This is a powerful workflow that will allow productions with high shooting ratios to significantly reduce the time and money to produce 4K content.
