Panasonic AG-DVX200 New Firmware Available

You can now download firmware version 1.25 for the Panasonic AG-DVX200.

The release notes mention the following improvements:

  1. Addition of the fast scan mode to minimize skew image.
    • New mode (Fast Scan) is added to 4K24p, UHD29.97p, UHD23.98p and UHD25p.
  2. Reduction of black dot noise in 4K/UHD modes.
  3. Improvement of playback image aspect ratio.
    • Recording method is improved so that playback image is correctly in 16:9 when a 480i/576i SQUEEZE video is played.
  4. Correction of ISO gain value display in High-sensitivity mode.

These improvements are welcome but not as big as we were hoping but we should reserve judgement until video reviews are done with the new firmware.
