SONY NEX Firmware Released


Shortly after SOny released their mirroless NEX-3 and NEX-5, they released the first firmware upgrade today.  Got my Sony NEX-5 two days ago (review and pics later), and I can say this update came at the best time.  So what’s new with this firmware? Sony added 3D sweep panorama (but only viewable on their own Sony Bravia TV, gee!). Apart from that,

  • Improvement of ‘normal’ 2D Sweep Panorama shooting;
  • Decreased power drain when the camera is switched off;
  • Quicker start-up in low-light conditions.

You can find the download page here. Oh, one more thing, the firmware upgrade is for PC only, Mac users, eat your heart out.

    Fucking tethering – it is sadly the future of the commerce, branding and indeed the internet.

    What’s next? Reebok shoes only work with Reebok socks?
