Just a quick one this morning: Sony have just announced the first firmware update for their PMW-100 and PMW-200.
Available for free from the Sony support site, the updates mainly add extra bits to your menu and give you more assignable switch options. The PMW-100 v1.10 adds White Clip level setting, Audio Reference level setting and Auto Black Balance to the user menu, and allows you to set one of your assignable switches to Steady Shot. The distortion compensation feature has been improved (we haven’t actually seen this yet – if you try it out, drop us a comment and let us know what you think).
PMW-200 users also get v1.10 for free, and will see Auto Flange Back, WiFi Remote Control and Audio Reference Level settings added to their user menu. Steady Shot is now an assignable switch option, and you can save your camera setup data to a USB memory stick, as well as SxS memory.
