Here's how it works:

After you purchase the F5 to F55 Upgrade, you will receive a kit containing a registered Certificate, Instructions and a Registration Card to complete and send in with your F5 camera. You must call or email the Sony Service Center listed for your state to make an appointment. The upgrade must be scheduled, walk-ins will not be allowed.

Make sure you pack the PMW-F5 camera with the Registration Card in a safe case for shipment or bring it to the Sony Service Center on the scheduled appointment day.

Please note that this upgrade is a one-time modification to the PMW-F5 camera, which cannot be reversed once complete. The end-user will not receive back the original F5 components. Additional service requests will incur extra charges and extend service time.
