Sony NEX Firmware Version 04 Released

[Update: 20 June 2011] The Firmware is OUT finally, check it out from your respective country’s Sony Site. I linked the manual here for your reference, same as previous.

[15 May 2011] If you’re a Sony NEX Camera user, you probably knows the blog Sony Alpha NEX Cameras and E mount Lenses. Couple days ago they posted details of the new Sony NEX Firmware Version 04 details, link here.

The new features, the picture effects and the manual focus assist are definitely gonna turn some heads, be it existing owners or others considering buying the NEX cameras.

Picture Effects

Manual Focus Aid

  • Peaking Level (High, Medium, Low, Off) – Enhances the outline of in-focus ranges with a specific color in manual focus. This function allows you to confirm the focus easily.
  • Peaking Color (White, Red, or Yellow) – Sets the color used for the peaking function in manual focus.

So far, no news as to when the firmware is coming out but my guess is anytime now, stay tuned.
