RAW Coming to the Sony FS5 for $600 plus External Recorder

sony_pxw-fs5

The Sony FS5 did not get off to a great start but on account of a firmware fix and a new firmware coming, along with a paid option for raw (of course you’ll have to buy an external recorder to take advantage of it) things are looking better.  The RAW upgrade will be $600 and will allow for 4K 60fps RAW via 3G SDI.

The new, free 2.0 firmware allows for better control of auto-exposure and the electronic ND filter.
