Sony will release a firmware update for its F55 (pictured) and F5 cameras this summer that will allow users to record in XAVC 4K Class 480 at 23.98p, 24p, 25p and 29.97p.


XAVC 4K Class 480 is a higherdata- rate version of XAVC, the recording format based on H.264. At the same time, the manufacturer will bring to market a Raw recorder, the AXS-R7, that works with both the F55 and the F5, and two higher-speed AXS memory cards. The latter will have capacities of 1TB and 512GB.
