Firmware 1.3.1 Patch Released + Shipping updates!

It’s been a busy summer at Digital Bolex, as we’re hard at work on our biggest firmware update yet, in addition to delivering our lenses and a ton of new accessories.

MFT Mounts are in!

Our new batch of MFT mounts arrived at the end of June, and have shipped out to most users. We’re pleased to say that they’re fully in stock for new orders, and our reselling partners like B&H and Le Cirque are already carrying a D16MFT bundle in addition to C-mount models.

Kish Lenses

Lenses arrived in our LA office a few weeks ago, and have been going through one final round of testing before being sent to customers. We are shipping lenses as the tests are completed, and have a high volume of orders to fulfill, so if you have not yet received your lenses, fear not: they are on their way soon.

Hood & Skin status

Our first batch of monitor hoods has arrived in the Toronto office. They are being prepped to ship this week. Rubber skins are arriving next week to ship.

Firmware 1.3 Patch

We’ve patched firmware 1.3 with a few small updates. These include:

  • removing the blip before a clip opens for playback
  • fixing a bug with timecode recording in 1.3.0
  • fixing a bug with an incorrectly displayed menu icon in 1.3.0
  • smoothing the motion of the HDMI out signal

The new patch is available on our Downloads page.
