What a gift to me on my birthday today.
Happy Birthday Stewart!
Hope you check out the Mahout Short. We just released it here in LA yesterday!
Thanks for the wonderful report John. Sam Nicholson says he used Litepanels for the elephant film. I have Litepanels and have notice their shortfalls in colour spectrum (like all LEDs) when recording at hd 8 bit 422. Given the F55′s massive colour gamut etc, I would expect LED sources to display this problem even more starkly; is there any chance of Sam (or perhaps his colourist?) to post some feedback on this? Thanks.
The color shift in the LEDs or any other light are much better handled by the F55′s color bandwidth. It’s easy to pull out or change color in 4K RAW.

Although this was a very good and helpful report I would have liked to see some criticism or a few pages about the disadvantages of the camera.
Does anyone know the voltage/current rating for the two 4-pin hirose connectors on the V-mount adaptor plate? I cannot see any other DC-out ports apart from these so it would be good to know what onboard accessories they could power.
according to B&H:
11 V to 17 V DC (MAX 2.0A)
Does anyone know where I can download this from still? The download link no longer works…
We continue to update the F5-55 Booklet. Latest version is 5.3.
