We have stopped download of PXW-FS5/PXW-FS5K firmware for issues below.

Issue 1:
Video image may be recorded with short delay of 2 or 3 frames of audio in other recording modes than AVCHD. The signal from output connector(s) doesn't have a delay.

Issue 2:
When choosing [HLG1],[HLG2] or [HLG3] in the PictureProfile and CENTER SCAN in the CAMERA/PAINT menu, rebooting the camera may cause brightness and color shift. Deactivating and activating the CENTER SCAN can correct this.

Please install the latest firmware(V4.02 or later).
