The camera firmware can be updated over USB using the following procedure:
While holding down the Scroll Wheel, press and release the Power Button to power on the camera in Firmware Update mode. Continue to hold down the Scroll Wheel until the Record LED flashes slowly.
Plug in the USB cable. The camera will appear as a USB drive. This drive is separate from the one where clips are stored, so your footage won’t be visible but is safe and not affected by the firmware update.
Drag the new firmware file (WAVE.BIN) into the fw folder.
Click the Scroll Wheel. The Record LED will begin to flash quickly as the firmware is updated.
Wait for the camera to automatically restart with the new firmware. This should take at most 30 seconds.
v1.3.0 (11 August, 2021)
New default color profile (COLOR3) with gamma of 2.2, better matching Rec.709. This is only a metadata hint and does not affect the recorded data. (Applied gamma can be changed at will in Wave Player to suit the scene and exposure.)
File format for the internal SSD changed to exFAT, which has lower overhead, improved write speed margins. (This takes effect the next time the SSD is formatted after the firmware update.)
Internal SSD is now explicitly read-only over USB. This is to prevent cases where files added or deleted over USB create file system fragmentation that negatively impacts peak write speeds.
Improved HDMI playback buffering and smoothness. Dropping to 1x from fast-forward will now resume 30fps playback.
Better indication for internal SSD near-full and full.
Other minor bugfixes and improvements.
