Panasonic AG-AC90 Firmware update
on Jul 7, 2015 at 3:21:22 am

Hi all, couldn't find the right forum to post this but figured some of your FCP users might be AC90 owners...

wondering if any of you have successfully downloaded the firmware updates. I just noticed that i hadn't done done ANY of the updates and figured it be a good idea...but now it's taking forever to download the firmware from parsonic's site... with very little information to go on. Do I need to update incrementally? any help from ac90 owner who has done this would be greatly appreciated

Tom, I'm not a great fan of updates and only do them if I'm sure that I need to. If find that with Apple's updates they tend to give with one hand and take away with the other. If it works don't fix it.

Firmware updates are something else. If you are at all unsure, I would suggest you take your camera to your local dealer to update the firmware, as if things go wrong during the firmware update your camera could be rendered useless. Do you NEED the update and is it worth the risk?

I hear us. I guess I was looking more for direct experience from an ac90 owner on whether they saw the firmware upgrade as useful to them.

Well, I have used the AC90 and didn't like it. I found it lens heavy and didn't balance well. As to the firmware update, I just googled it and it seems un-impressive.

But if there's a "must have" in there for you then go ahead.

Oh I was happy with the form factor and the general feel, so I went ahead and did the firmware update and I'm glad I did... a couple key upgrades - especially the white balance... much better ...

thanks for your input though...
