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:

  1. Added more lenses supported by the in-camera auto-correction features:
    In total, the A77 and A65 now can auto-correct a total of 12 lenses.
  2. Improved response time for camera shutdown, auto-review, front and rear dials and playback.
  3. Improved AF response for the Sony Alpha 500/4 G SSM.
  4. 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.
