Sony NEX-FS100 firmware v2.0 removes gain control in lanc

Article Summary:

Wetpixel member Simon Spear writes about his experience with the NEX-FS100 firmware update V2.0, which adds many features but removes gain control from lanc access.  Since firmware cannot be backgraded, this functionally makes the gain controls on his Amphibico Genesis housing useless.  According to Simon, neither Sony or Amphibico gave any notice about this feature removal before he purchased the housing and upgraded the firmware on the camera.  Simon’s correspondence with Sony has come up with a possible fix to retrograde the firmware with some parts replacement for yet unknown total costs.  Stay tuned for updates when Simon attempts to get back gain control through this fix.
