Sony PMW-F3 S-Log Firmware news

On Thursday, Sony released the firmware update v1.1 for the PMW-F3. It's free, and includes the following enhancements: Dual Link HD-SDI output 4:2:2 10bit 1080 23.98/ 25/ 29.97PsF, Planning Metadata, S&Q Wheel as a Menu Dial, and ND Adjustment.

The firmware also includes the capability for S-Log gamma mode, 3G-SDI output, Dual Link 444 RGB video output, custom user LUTs and pre-loaded LUTs (look up tables). BUT you have to buy the CBK-RGB01 upgrade key, which is now available for order from several retailers for $3,680. (I've checked and two retailers are stating that delivery will take about three weeks.)
