According to Sony, some users were seeing horizontal noise in the FF crop 5K scanning mode when the automatic distortion compensation was active.
To be clear, this anomaly was only found in the initial versions of v2.00 software. Sony requests that users who have already updated to the v2.00 software are requested update to the new v2.01 software to fix the issue.
Sony will be releasing Ver.3.0 firmware sometime next year. It will include the following key features:
- S700PTP Remote Protocol
- Center Scan mode for Super 16mm lens
- B4 Lens support when using an adaptor
