    Thanks, Ken! Yes, the whole point of this was to reset CF19 to 1.

    Wouldn't it be nice if Phase provided some documentation! It seems documentation is inversely proportional to the cost of the product. The manual is useless for how to set the functions.

    Hey Doug... how about writing the missing manual for Phase One?

    Ken, need to have another party at your house!
    Happy New Year!

    I hope Phase is not following the example of Arca-Swiss with the Cube. All I got there was a bad photocopy of the scant instructions. (no joke). Phase is actually not bad---it's when they change the default settings around in the firmware!

    Yup! I think another Pigs is in order---but somewhere along the lines of Wine, Dine, and Schwein!

    Have a great New Year!

    The CF settings appear to reset spontaneously with 2.01. Has happened to me twice. I set AF to accuracy and to work off of the AEL button. All is well as I shoot. I can turn everything off and then back on and all is still as I set it.

    Put the camera away for a few hours and everything goes back to default.

    Anyone else seen this?

    Just tried it on my DF. CF settings do annoyingly reset to "new defaults" on updating firmware, but the settings on my DF do stick. I tried several times checking the CF settings CF19 (AF) and it sticks; tried with turning on the IQ180 and with leaving the IQ180 off (camera body only). So my DF seems to be fine.

    Maybe if it seems your update isn't holding the settings, suggest reverting back to previous firmware versions, and then re-installing 2.01.
