RED’s DSMC2 BETA V7.1 firmware was only available to select number of beta testers, but now the company has made it available for anyone to download.

DSMC2 BETA V7.1 adds a host of new features to a range of RED cameras. Probably the biggest additions are 5K 4:3 and 5K 4:3 2x anamorphic support for the EPIC-W 8K S35, DSMC2 5K S35, DSMC2 8K S35, and DSMC2 8K VV. There are also lots of added lens support updates including, Zeiss XD lens metadata support, Sigma Art lens for Nikon support, Sigma lens firmware v2.0.1 support, and Sigma 50-100mm F1.8 DC HSM Art Lens for Canon support.

If you happen to be a RED RAVEN owner that camera gets support for Avid DNxHD/HR HQ,  Avid DNxHD/HR SQ, R3D + DNxHD/HR HQ, and R3D + DNxHD/HR SQ codec recording.

The feature most RED users seem to be most excited about is the addition of a focus peaking tool, something that is long overdue.
