Over the weekend Sony announced details of the next firmware release for the F5 & F55 cameras. The update contains some much-requested enhancements, namely picture cache and support for user generated 3D LUTs. Picture cache will give you recording up to 15 seconds in 50 Mbps 4:2:2, up to 8 seconds in XAVC HD 2K, and up to 2 seconds in XAVC QFHD 4K. User 3D LUT support means we will be able to load custom 3D LUTs into the camera to create different looks. This is a great feature and we are looking forward to making our popular AbelCine looks into compatible 3D LUTs. This update also features a number of other great features, including a customizable user menu and full HDMI 2.0 support for 4K up to 60p:
