Sony has released the Ver. 2.02 firmware update for the FX3. Ver. 2.02 Firmware is not a big update I am sure some owners of the camera would have liked to have seen Sony ad some basic features that they think are missing from the camera.
What’s new in Ver. 2.02?
- Fixes an issue where the camera may not operate properly after installing the System Software Update to Version 2.01. Sony apologizes for the inconvenience.
- Fixes an issue where a movie file rotated in the camera may not be rotated on the computer
- Fixes an issue where the touch operations do not work in the Imaging Edge Mobile apps when the DISP (Screen Disp) Set option is set to No Disp. Info
- Improves the operational stability of the camera
With the addition of the new Log shooting modes that were introduced in the Ver. 2.00 firmware update, Sony has reviewed the picture profiles and the gamma settings and concluded that S-Log2 is no longer needed. Therefore, it will no longer be an option on your FX30 once you install this new firmware. After the update, you will need to use the gamma setting S-Log3.
Ver. 2.02 also adds improvements when connecting to the Imaging Edge Mobile app so that it is easier to do. After pairing the app with the camera, you can transfer images and shoot remotely just by operating the app. You can refer to Pairing the camera with a smartphone (Smartphone Regist.) in Sony’s Help Guide for more details. Please note that you will also need to update the Imaging Edge Mobile app to Ver. 7.7 or later, and register as a new camera after the update.
The other thing to be aware of is that the NFC one-touch connection function used up to Ver. 1.01 of the camera will no longer be available.
Precautions when updating from Ver. 2.00 and Ver. 2.01
You really need to be aware of one caveat before you update your firmware so you don’t end up crying later on! When you update to version 2.02 it will delete the LUT (Look-Up Table) settings in the camera. You will need to re-register the LUT settings after the update is complete.
Precautions when updating from Ver. 1.01 or earlier
After updating to Ver. 2.00 or later, the camera settings will be reset to the default values. Since this update adds functions and makes major specification changes, the camera settings will be initialized as part of the update process. It is recommended that you make note of all the camera settings before proceeding. Even if you have saved the settings using the various save features available (such as Save/Load Settings and Save/Load FTP Settings) the settings before Ver. 1.01 cannot be read by the camera after the upgrade to Ver. 2.00 or later.
