Sony a7S III gets S-Cinetone color profile with new 2.00 firmware update

Earlier this week, Sony Nordic accidentally sent out a newsletter with details of the next firmware update for its a7S III mirrorless camera. Now, firmware version 2.00 for the a7S III is live and ready to download for all. As mentioned in our initial coverage, firmware version 2.00 now includes Sony’s S-Cinetone color profile, first seen in its F6X Cinema Line camera and ‘inspired by the color science used in Sony’s flagship VENICE cinema camera.’ The color profile, which Sony says ‘delivers natural mid-tones, plus soft colors and gorgeous highlights’ can be used for monitoring only or as a ‘baked-in’ look so the footage is graded for less work in post-production. The update also improves Active Mode with 5-axis optical in-body image stabilization. You can download firmware version 2.00 for the Sony a7S III on Sony’s support website. Sony notes macOS Big Sur is not supported at this time.
