Sony Venice Firmware V5.0 now available[10:54 sun,19.January 2020 by Thomas Richter]
As announced in May 2019, the firmware update 5.0 for the Sony Venice is now available. The new firmware allows frame rates of 90fps in 6K 2.39:1 and 72fps in 6K 17:9/1.85:1.
A further improvement concerns HD recording. Here, firmware v5.0 enables recording with ProRes 4444 to the regular SxS PRO+ memory card even without the optional AXS-R7 recorder. There are also some minor optimizations in the area of image preview, such as flip-flop via SDI and viewfinder, and high-resolution enlargement via the monitor output.
Here our review of the Sony Venice.
