New Firmware adds FS5 Raw recording, A/V Align and other features // News Shooter

Convergent Design has just released a major firmware update for the Odyssey 7Q/7Q+ 4K recorder and Apollo recorder/switcher. This is the thirteenth firmware update since the original Odyssey 7Q was announced and its good to see a company continually updating their products like this. The previous firmware updates weren’t just simple bug fixes – they added a lot of functionality and features over time. The latest firmware, previously shown at NAB 2016, follows this trend and provides a host of great new additions.

If you have the optional Odyssey Raw bundle you can now record from the Sony FS5 in 4K or 2K Raw in CinemaDNG, or take the Raw signal from the camera and convert and record it in Apple ProRes (although the FS5 must be set to Picture Profile Slog2 with Standard Gamma for this to work). The 4K FS Raw ­to 4K CinemaDNG is available at frame rates up to 60p. There is also the option to record short 4K FS Raw bursts ­in CinemaDNG at frame rates of 100 or 120fps. If you are shooting 2K FS Raw ­to 2K CinemaDNG you can get higher frame rates up to 240fps.
