Sony just released the new firmware for the Nex-5n and it’s a MUST GET!! Significant AF speed improvements and a bunch of other little things that might help a few people here and there. The full list of changes is below, but the Auto focus is really the meat of the upgrade. The firmware is now available Here >>
And Here is the lest of firmware improvement:
Enhancement of AF response: When subject distance changes enormously.
Improved stability in certain camera operations:
When setting [Lens Compensation: Distortion] “Auto” and [Picture Effect] “Miniature” at the same time.
When setting [Exposure Compensation], [Intelligent AF] operation improves.
Restrictions: only for use with cameras sold in Europe. Not all models are sold in all countries.
This is a great news as the Sony Nex-5n is one of the best cameras I’ve ever reviewed. Especially when you consider the image/ video quality vs size and price!! Check out my Full In-Depth Review of the Nex-5n over Here >>
The Canon 5D Mark III has official been announced, and being and owner of the 5d Mark II I’m very interested!! I’ll be doing a full article on it soon, so stand by for that if your interested.
