Hey guys. Firmware 3.0 came out and is now on my Scarlet. The problem is still there. And on a side note so you don't make the same mistake: The update deleted my presets, I guess I could have thought of that, but they could have put that into the update procedure txt next to the other warnings.
I did the following test:
Since the framerate the camera really records is set under "project" I thought maybe if I had set that to 25 and the front menu fps to 30 I could have the best of both worlds. Fail. Filming a fan and a lightbulb revealed that there's an obvious difference in the perception of light with the 25 and 30 fps front menu setting even though the file itself is always 25 under "project". That might have been obvious, but I thought I'd give it a try, you never know.
@Martin: I should have seen this problem before my test, but up until recently I had always used the Scarlet handheld or fixed without pans. And during the car chase scene I was shaking and screaming behind the camera with ice blowing around my head...
I cannot rent the camera without a fix for that. The people who rent from me do commercials and I'll never rent this camera again if I rent it like this.
