Firmware update to bring 3D assist features to XF305 and XF300 camcorders

April 08, 2011

Exciting news for 3D content producers: With the new firmware update (available summer 2011), XF300-series camcorders will get the same 3D assist functionality currently available in the XF100-series.

These features include: Manual OIS Lens Shift to aid in optically aligning two cameras, and the Focal Length Guide for displaying the zoom position of each camera in relation to each other and calibrating the zoom distance.

Additional Scan Reverse modes are also being added, to allow for easier workflow when using mirrored 3D rigs. The Scan Reverse modes now include Up/Down reversal, Left/Right reversal, and both.
