As you can see for yourself the WORKFLOW part of the USA Sony FS100 brochure states RGB 4:4:4 from the HDMI socket while the UK version states 4:2:2.
This is causing a great debate and confusion amongst my readership who surprisingly come from all parts of the globe and the US chaps are telling me that the Sony FS100 is 4:4:4 while it is clear that the UK info from Sony tells a different story.
It won’t be the first time that the same camcorder has slightly different specs depending where in the world it is sold in fact I remember the good old days of DV when the firewire input was disabled in the UK to save paying extra import duties.
Sony Broadcast UK are on the case I hope to get a definitive reply via Japan later on today.
