    Has this been shared? but it looks like the dual link upgrade will be 3,300. I'm thinking thats pretty resonable with lenses that makes the camera 22,250

    "Dual link" is already active standard. It's selectable in the menus in the current firmware for the PMW-F3. I've previously heard on this forum that the S-Log/4:4:4 upgrade will be $3,500.

    I saw on Abel Cine Tech's blog that the upgrade was $3300. I believe $3500 is the MSRP. You would think the price is the price with a firmware upgrade. Maybe Andy Shipsides from AbelCineTech can chime in.

    ...All I can think is, bricking a PMW-F3 is far more expensive than bricking a Canon 5DmkII.

    I agree with Nate. Since Sony controls the box and it has an embedded OS in it and the ability to make unique hardware IDs in the camera, Sony would not be daft enough to have this camera go out, knowing they were going to be charging a hefty upgrade fee and not have an identification scheme to prevent firmware piracy or forgery. If this camera had limited distriubtion to TV stations and film studios they MIGHT approach things differently.

    Is there a firmware upgrade price?

    RED doesn't do that. RED doesn't do that. I think it would be incredibly silly of Sony to do that, they'll just lose a lot of credibility. And as have been mentioned:
    The upgrade can probably easily be shared.

    guys, the 4:4:4 upgrade you have to pay for is a hardware upgrade, swapping out a pcb board. this is bundled with new firmware, to allow the coprocs to correctly interact with the new board. It is not possible for any amount of hacking to accomplish this. It is not possible for any amount of hacking to accomplish anything really, in professional, high end equipment. These aren't dslrs with consumer grade firmware not fully utilizing the procs given to them, under lousy encryption, these are $14,000 pieces of equipment.
