  • CAMERA(HS):7.00-00-0.00
  • RECORDER :7.00-00-0.01

AU-VCVF1G Ver 1.10

  1. [35 | HS] There is an error in Capture Frame Rate, which is metadata of a clip recorded in VFR mode. This is corrected.

    Occurs with Ver. 7.00-00-0.00 (released in February 2017) and later


    When the system frequency is 23.98p/29.97p/59.94p, the value of Capture Frame Rate (metadata of a VFR-recorded clip) is rounded down and shown as an integer.

    Example 23.98p for SYSTEM & 48fps for VFR
    False: 47 True: 47.95

    Therefore, the motion speed in VFR was not correctly calculated by application software that refers to the metadata.

  2. [35 | HS] Some operations cause E-36 or E-37 system error. This problem is fixed.
