The noticeable time interval from which A77 and A65 SLT cameras have suffered for amending exposure settings along with other things is of no secret for any one. Those who are annoyed with it, will be glad to know that Sony has updated both its cameras to firmware version 1.05, declaring that this will sharpen their responses. Particularly you will notice quicker cold startups, rapid response times from the front and rear dials and faster access to images in auto review. This doesn’t end up with it; furthermore the company has also added in-camera shading and chromatic aberration compensation for 11 of its A-mount lenses that would take less time processing your images in post. Lastly, the A77 has upgraded with its autofocus system which will in turn improve its abilities in high-contrast environments. However the SAL500F40G 500mm F4 G SSM super-telephoto lens will now focus faster with both shooters. Go for the press release for full on details to it and download information is available on Sony Press Centre (EU).
Firmware update sharpens camera responses for α77 and α65 cameras by Sony
29 March 2012
Latest firmware Version 1.05 also supports aberration/vignetting compensation for more lenses
A new firmware update further boosts operability of the α77 and α65 Translucent Mirror cameras from Sony.
Available for free download from 29 March 2012, firmware Version 1.05 adds several enhancements to both cameras. Alongside heightened responsiveness, it improves operability of both cameras with a wider choice of A-mount optics by Carl Zeiss and Sony.
Shading and aberration compensation
Both cameras can now intelligently correct vignetting, lateral chromatic aberration and distortion for a total of 11 A-mount lenses, including a further six models that are now supported:
SAL-24F20Z (Carl Zeiss)
SAL-85F14Z (Carl Zeiss)
SAL-135F18Z (Carl Zeiss)
SAL-70300G (G Lens)
Operability of both cameras is further improved with a number of refinements that facilitate smoother, faster handling.
Auto review responses are now quicker, without a ‘processing’ message being displayed
Time between power switch operation and power off has been shortened
Front/rear dial responses are improved
Autofocus responses and precision
Autofocus accuracy is now improved when focusing on scenes with wide contrast difference between objects (applies to SLT-A77 only). In addition, AF speed is improved when using both cameras with the recently-announced SAL500F40G 500mm F4 G SSM super-telephoto lens by Sony. You’ll be able to focus faster on athletes, wildlife and other distant subjects with this bright, high-magnification lens that is available exclusively to order.
Firmware version 1.05 for the α77/α65 Translucent Mirror cameras by Sony is available as a free download to registered owners from 29th March 2012
