A little while ago, Sony released the latest firmware for the F5 & F55 cameras, as well as the AXS-R5 Raw recorder. Version 1.15 of the F5/F55 firmware has some small incremental updates, with mostly bug fixes included. However, some big changes include improved naming conventions on the AXS card, de-anamorphic function on the viewfinder, and a warning when you haven’t black balanced in a while. Sony is well on the way toward the next big release, version 1.20, which aims to give a vast array of new functions. For now, you can download version 1.15 from Sony’s website; make sure to read the details on what is and is not currently working. (Note: v1.15 includes all the updates in v1.14, in addition to another small update.) 

Sony has also released new Look Up Tables for use with S-Log2 footage shot in S-Gamut or Rec709 color spaces. These LUTs are 3D cubes and can be used in DaVinci Resolve or other color grading applications. They work as a good starting point when working with S-Log2 footage, especially when shooting in S-Gamut. An S-Gamut to Rec709 color space conversion can be tricky, so Sony has done a lot of the hard work for you already. Here is a shot in Resolve with the Sony LUT applied, converting S-Log2 and S-Gamut to Rec709.

You can find the new LUTs on the Sony Community Site. Also, if you are having a hard time loading them into your color grading application I have made several conversions to different formats including OSD, Scratch, Baselight, and others – download my conversions here. Not sure how to apply LUT’s? Check out my previous blog covering how to do just that in FCP, Premiere, Avid, and Resolve!
