Sony F5 4K Hack


I was browsing online trying to discover some new media and a new podcast to listen to and came across this little beauty. The guys at ‘Extra Shot‘ have been playing around with the F5 and trying to make it shoot 4K – internally!

And, well…..sorry F55 owners, they did it!

It’s a simple little bit of code that simulates the camera to believe it’s an F55. It doesn’t involve any Firmware updates or opening the camera body, meaning you don’t actually void Sony’s warranty…. If you want to know more listen to their podcast to get the full details on how they did it and how you can too.
