Firmware update with MOS sensor fixes for HPX300 camcorder
Panasonic Broadcast is now providing a free firmware update for new performance enhancements to its AG-HPX300 10-bit, 4:2:2 P2 HD camcorder.
The new firmware update improves CMOS imager performance and compensates for the “flash band” effect that plagues most MOS-based imagers. The update allows the camera to use a specially developed LSI signal process that removes flash artifacts commonly caused by the rolling shutter feature in these imagers. It detects the flash band frame and combines it with the previous unaffected frame image to compensate for divided flash band frames and maintain the natural frame sequence.
Update is available at Panasonic Support site.
