  1. Hi Alister. I have one PMW-200 with the 1.01 firmware. In the page of Sony Pro, i’ve found two firmware updates. If i go to the camera page ( http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/cat-broadcastcameras/cat-xdcam/product-PMW200/), in the right side, in the “Download Software”, is the 1.1 firmware. But if i go to ” Microsites>XDCAMS>Resources>DCAM HD 422 Memory Camcorders and Recorder/Player”, i have the 1.2 firmware. Then i ask you. Why Sony have two firmwares updates? Why in the camera page they dont show the 1.2 update? Should i first update to 1.1 and then to 1.2? Or can i go directly to 1.2?
