FS5 UG copy v2

Upgrade done via my PXW-FS5 and it works a treat, this is a lens I could not rely on before the FW upgrade.

Its slightly obvious that Sony knew they would not have a new 18-105mm servo zoom lens to replace this one at NAB so they decided to fix the older lens. You need to connect your computer to your FS5 via the micro USB socket inside the SD card compartment and run the upgrade…it only takes seconds.

Sony FS7 owners who have the 18-105 lens are asking how do they update their lens ?




Having been working in the video business since 1988 I have amassed a great amount of knowledge of both the kit and production values over the last 30 years.

  1. If you update the lens firmware on the FS5 body.What happens if you then decide to use the lens on the FS7? Does the lens still work on the FS7 or do you see any improvement on the FS7?
