Has anyone been able to find a firmware upgrade for the Vixia GX10 with Clog-3? I checked the firmware file VNA4.FIM version 220.127.116.11 for the GX10 and the XF400 and found the firmware files to be idetntical. Has anyone tried to install the VNA5.FIM on a GX10? I would like to use the C-log 3 picture profile on the GX10 to match my XF400. I did see the Vixia G60 did get a new firmware in Dec 2020 along with the XF400 with the new color profiles.
I feel the XF400 firmware will work on the GX10 as the hardwar is the same. I do not understand why the consumer G60 qwould get the new firware with clog3 and the GX10 would not. The GX10 was marketes as the consumer versiion of the XF400. The G60 is not even as good a camera as the GX10 and both are consumer lines so I would expect a similar firmware to be avaiable as the rest of the line for the GX10.

Canon controls what specific firmware can be applied to any piece of hardware. Firmware specific to the XF400 would therefore cannot be applied to another model.

So update. Yesterday I posted about the GX10 and firmware 18.104.22.168; which was not listed on Canon's website. Today I received in the mail a refurbished (from Canon / B&H) Canon Vixia GX10. The refurbished GX10 did arrive with firmware 22.214.171.124 already installed direct from Canon. SO yes there is a Canon Vixia GX10 firmware version 126.96.36.199 which does have the C-Log 3 picture profile.
Someone at Canon needs to update the avilable firmware on their website. This firmware became availble December 2020.

Is this true ?
When the XF400/405, XA50/55 and HF-G60 models got firmware upgrades with the new Custom Picture feature (the full feature, includiing Clog3) back in December, but the GX10 didn't, I took it as a sign that Canon were maybe phasing out the GX10. I wonder why they've added it now ? In response to public demand and/or maybe sales picked up ?
Good news anyway, assuming of course this 188.8.131.52 firmware update will be posted on the Drivers & Downloads page and the on-line User Manual will be updated.
