I dont know is it the right place for what i am looking for but I need an advise regarding a firmware upgrade of the Sony XDCAM-HD PDW-F335L. The main reason of the firmware upgrade is the extra features added to the current firmware version. My camera details and current firmware is:
Model: Sony PDW-F335L
Serial No: 10435
Currently available firmware according to this address https://servicesplus.us.sony.biz/sony-software-model-PDWF335.aspx is:- Package: 1.98 (According to Broadcast Products Technical Bulletin 20-2009-109), Package: 1.96 is also available through that site, but the upgrade procedure described in the Broadcast Products Technical Bulletin 20-2009-028 states that
"Firmware can be upgraded directly to V1.96 ONLY from V1.93 or V1.95. If firmware is earlier than V1.93, upgrade to V1.95 first as described in the following technical bulletins:
As my current Firmware package is V1.76, I can't upgrade to the current V1.96 or V1.98 (According to Technical Bulletin 20-2009-028). I have searched a lot for the V1.95 but its missing from the Sony site and already have been replaced by the V1.96 before my necessity reaches priority, bad luck for me.
Now my mind is full of many types of confusion and question, like the following:
What is the proper AT and PKG version required for my current firmware to be upgraded to the latest firmware V1.98?
Where/How can I get the proper/intermediate AT and PKG firmware to do the rest of the upgrade?
Do I realy need the so called MOUNTED C.BOARD, MS-69A board or Special Jig to upgrade from my current firmware version?
Will I have to use the older version of Memory Stick 128 MB for the upgrade job or can I use the currently available Memory Stick Pro Duo 2 GB card?
