Re: XAVC on PMW-400

It's on v1.31. You'll find it under the Resources tab for the PMW 400 in the XDCam section on the Sony Professional website. You do have to sign up first. I remember a link also being posted on LinkedIn as well. So a Google search with the right firmware update info may also be successful.

Re: PMW 500 Colour Temperature Readings

Following up on this, I now understand that some 500 's are having the CCD gain adjusted to correct white balance values.
Obviously this would have to be done by an engineer, etc but could help you.

Re: PMW 500 Colour Temperature Readings

That's interesting that you're finding this as I tend to find the opposite!

Compared to my old DVCam camera, the 500's reading are higher. At 5-5600, the 500 would roughly be 6-6500, for example.

Are you're readings down to a setting that you may not be aware of on the camera??

Re: two wireless mics to an xdcam

Which camera are you using? I'm presuming the two mic receivers were plugged into the camera via the 2 XLR connectors? Did you change the microphone settings on channel 2 from the front (top mic) to rear (ie XLR connector) and from auto to manual? Also, be careful not to knock the little switch just...

PMW 500 - What settings do you use?

I have now taken delivery of my PMW 500. I have the BBC settings on a SDHC card for when I work in News which is in FAT mode at 35mbps. But what I would like to know is what settings people are using for when filming at 50mbps for say corporate or documentary/feature work. Ideally I'd like settings ...

Re: What camera top mic do you have fitted to your PMW 350/5

I know what you mean. I've seen pictures of some top mics that are so long they extend past the lens. The one I think I'm going for is the short top mic - about 5 inches long.

Thanks. Probably going to go for the Sony stereo mic with 5 pin xlr.
