Sharper shooting with free firmware update for NEX-7 camera

Press release   •   Oct 18, 2012 08:00 CEST

A brand-new firmware update improves handling and expands creative options with the NEX-7 interchangeable lens digital camera from Sony.

Available as a free download for all registered NEX-7 users, the update adds these useful shooting enhancements:

Enable/disable MOVIE button: Operation of the rear-mounted MOVIE record button can be disabled, avoiding the risk of accidental operation during still shooting.

Wider exposure bracketing: The range of exposure bracketing options is increased with the addition of wider 1.0EV, 2.0EV and 3.0EV steps. (Bracketing increments were previously 1/3EV or 2/3EV). In Auto AE bracketing mode, the NEX-7 shoots a high-speed burst of three frames at different exposure values, allowing photographers to pick the best frame.

The update also adds further refinements that enhance operability and ease of use for NEX-7 customers. These include improved auto image review, improved image quality with wide angle lenses and improved indication when setting Flexible Spot AF Area.
