Sony released a Sony FX9 firmware 2.01 update that fixes a problem that caused horizontal noise in FF crop 5K scanning mode when the automatic distortion compensation was active.
Sony FX9 Firmware 2.01 Update
Last month, the Sony FX9 received a significant firmware 2.0 update a month earlier than expected. This update unlocked new frame rates and resolutions, 16-bit RAW output with the XDCA-FX9 extension unit mounted, Eye-AF capability, touchscreen operation, and so on.
However, users started to notice a strange image problem in FF crop 5K scanning mode. Indeed, when automatic distortion compensation was active, there were visible horizontal noise issues that also ended up on the recorded footage.
To solve that issue, Sony released an FX9 firmware 2.01 update. Although this image problem can be found only on the first versions of firmware 2.0, Sony recommends that all FX9 users currently running firmware 2.0 update to version 2.01.
The FX9 Firmware 2.01 update can be downloaded now directly from Sony’s website here.
