• HDMI OUT terminal
Changes have been made so that the [HDR: PQ] and [HDR: HLG] base luminance corresponds to Diffuse White (100%) being 203nits.*2
4. Support for the [Reset] function that resets the clip number when the reel number is set, has been added.
5. When using an assignable button, the White Balance setting will be maintained after the power has been turned off.
6. Fixes a phenomenon that occurs on cameras with firmware versions 22.214.171.124.00 to 126.96.36.199.00 in which resolution appears to be reduced in SD card recordings and in external outputs when shooting with specific menu settings.*3
*1 When using the continuous recording function, only MP4 format/1920x1080 resolution is possible.
*2 The HLG output is the brightness in the case of displaying on a 1000nits monitor.
*3 Specific menu settings:
• When [Resolution/Colour Sampling] is set to [3840x2160 YCC420 8 bit].
• When [Resolution/Colour Sampling] is set to [1920x1080 YCC420 8 bit], and [Slow Motion Recording] is activated.
• When [Resolution/Colour Sampling] is set to [1920x1080 YCC420 8 bit], and the digital tele-converter and EF-S lens correction are activated.
For further information, please refer to the latest version of the unit’s Instruction Manual that is released with the firmware update.
• You cannot perform the firmware update using CFast 2.0 cards. Please use a commercially available SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card that is 64MB or more for the firmware update.
• Firmware version 188.8.131.52.00 is for updating Cinema EOS C200 cameras running firmware version 184.108.40.206.00 - 220.127.116.11.00. If your camera’s firmware is already version 18.104.22.168.00, it is not necessary to update the firmware. Once the camera is updated to the latest version, it cannot be restored to a previous version.
Preparations for a firmware update:
After the firmware update has been performed, the camera’s menu and custom picture settings will be reset. It is recommended that users save their menu and custom picture settings as settings data to an SD card, separate from the one that will be used to carry out the update, before starting update operations. This saved data can be loaded into the camera and the settings can be changed after the update has been completed. For further information on this, please refer to the section in the unit’s Instruction Manual titled “Saving and Loading Camera Settings”.
The downloaded folder contains the firmware (file name: VCN4.FIM / file size: 39,287,424 bytes), and instructions on the firmware update procedures (a PDF file in five languages: Japanese, English, French, Spanish and Simplified Chinese).
