We would like to share results of our investigations regarding the operating conditions of the Sony “a6400 (ILCE-6400),” released by Sony Corporation on February 22nd, 2019, and SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses for Sony E-mount.
 
With the SIGMA’s interchangeable lenses for Sony E-mount, both the AF and the AE work inter-connectedly, and they are compatible with the in-camera Lens Aberration Correction function:“Lens Correction” (“Peripheral illumination correction”, “Chromatic aberration of magnification correction”, “Distortion correction”). *SIGMA 19mm F2.8 DN | Art, SIGMA 19mm F2.8 EX DN, SIGMA 30mm F2.8 DN | Art, SIGMA 30mm F2.8 EX DN, and SIGMA 60mm F2.8 DN | Art are not compatible with the Fast Hybrid AF.
 
In addition, we found some phenomena particular to some products listed below. Regarding these phenomena, we are going to release a firmware update for improvement. The availability of the firmware will be announced on a later date.
 
Furthermore, the operating conditions of SIGMA’s SIGMA GLOVAL VISION (SGV) lenses via the MOUNT CONVERTER MC-11 are currently under investigation. After completing it, we are going to make an announcement.

Workaround for Malfunction During Use of VPG130 CFast Card
 
Thank you for using Canon products.
 
For EOS C300 Mark II/EOS C300 Mark II PL Digital Cinema Cameras equipped with firmware Version 1.0.6.1.00, we have confirmed a phenomenon in which, depending upon the usage conditions, the camera freezes when a VPG 130 CFast card is used simultaneously with a non VPG130 CFast card.
 
We are currently making preparations to correct this phenomenon with the release of a firmware update in mid-May. In the meantime, please use the method described in the workaround below.
 
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience caused to customers, and we ask for your ongoing patience.
 
Phenomenon
 
When a VPG130 CFast card is used simultaneously with a non VPG130 CFast card the camera may freeze. If the camera freezes, even if the live view image is displayed, all buttons and switches, including the POWER switch, will no longer respond, and the footage will not be recorded on the cards. (The time code and the recording indicator may continue to work.)
 
The camera can be released from the freeze condition by detaching it from the power supply (or removing the battery)
 
Workaround
 
If you experience this phenomenon please follow the steps below:
 
  1. Detach the camera from the power supply or remove the battery.
  2. Remove both CFast cards from the card slots.
  3. Use two of the same type of CFast cards: Either VPG130 or non VPG130.
Note: If there is only one CFast card inserted, you may continue use with no issues.
 
Affected Products
 
EOS C300 Mark II/EOS C300 Mark II PL Digital Cinema Cameras (with Firmware V1.0.6.1.00).
 
Support
 
We are planning to release updated firmware in mid-May 2017.
 
If you have not already done so, please register the EOS C300 Mark II and EOS C300 Mark II PL. By registering, we will be able to notify you via email about future announcements.

This symptom may occur when a Canon Battery Pack LP-E6 has been discharged due to being unused for a prolonged period of time, such as when it is first purchased. If this occurs, please follow the procedure below.
 
Procedure

  1. Plug the Canon Battery Charger LC-E6, with the Canon Battery Pack LP-E6 inserted, into a power outlet.
  2. Wait for 20 seconds.
    If during this time the orange lamp blinks once per second, please continue to charge the battery until the green lamp lights up, which indicates a full charge. At this point, the battery is ready for normal use, and there is no need to follow the remaining steps.
    If during this time the orange lamp blinks rapidly, please move on to Step 3 of this procedure.
  3. If the orange lamp blinks rapidly, remove the Canon Battery Pack LP-E6 from the Canon Battery Charger LC-E6.
  4. Wait for 10 seconds.
  5. Reinsert the Canon Battery Pack LP-E6 into the Canon Battery Charger LC-E6.
  6. The Canon Battery Charger LC-E6’s orange lamp should begin to flash slowly (once per second) and charging will begin.

  8. Charge the Canon Battery Pack LP-E6 until the green lamp on the Canon Battery Charger LC-E6 illuminates, signifying that the Canon Battery Pack LP-E6 is fully charged.

Use of non-genuine Canon Battery Packs
The situation may also occur when attempts are made to charge non-genuine Canon Battery Packs in the Canon Battery Charger LC-E6. However, the procedure provided above does not apply to the use of non-genuine Canon products.
