SLT-A77/A65 Firmware 1.05
March 29th, 2012 - 07:18:25 AM:
Rumor had it for some time, and today Sony has released firmware version 1.05 for the SLT-A77 and SLT-A65.
The new changes are:
- Added more lenses supported by the in-camera auto-correction features:
- Carl Zeiss Distagon T* 24/2 ZA SSM
- Carl Zeiss Planar T* 85/1.4 ZA
- Sony Alpha DT 35/1.8 SAM
- Sony Alpha DT 50/1.8 SAM
- Carl Zeiss Sonnar T* 135/1.8 ZA
- Sony Alpha 70-300/4.5-5.6 G SSM
In total, the A77 and A65 now can auto-correct a total of 12 lenses.
- Improved response time for camera shutdown, auto-review, front and rear dials and playback.
- Improved AF response for the Sony Alpha 500/4 G SSM.
- Improved AF accuracy for high-contrast targets.
Unfortunately, the restrictions of many features to JPEG-only mode (and in particular, the necessity to manually switch to JPEG-only to access these features) were still not lifted. Other improvements of usability, e. g. the ability to remote-start movie recording or the ability to customize more buttons, are also lacking.
