These presets are available in two varieties – one for 23.98fps UHD or 24fps DCI. Each preset sets up your FX3 so your “Fn” Menu will be customized to provide quick access to the following menu items:

  • Base ISO
  • Type of Auto Focus
  • Auto Focus area
  • Markers
  • Frame Rate
  • Auto Focus Transition Speed
  • Zebra
  • And Steadishot among others

The presets will also update the “My Menu” settings so that users have easy access to:

  • Marker Display
  • De-Squeeze Display
  • Format
  • HDMI Output Settings
  • And HDMI Info. Display**

**Please note that when HDMI Info Display is turned on then the FX3 LCD viewfinder will go to black when an external display is connected via HDMI. The On-Screen Display (OSD) will appear on the external monitor.
