    A700 Firmware Update

    From our friends over at DPREVIEW

    http://www.dpreview.com/news/0710/07...nya700firm.asp

    Sony has released the first firmware update for its α700 DSLR, improving image sharpness and noise performance as well as tweaking flash performance with non-ADI lenses. Also available are patches for the Alpha's bundled Image Data Converter and Image Data Lightbox software. The update is applicable only to early production cameras with "Ver.1" software which may be checked by pressing the Menu and Display buttons simultaneously.

    Hey, thanks for the update, Rich

    I do believe this will find some use in my system.

    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.

    Exclamation Some fine tuning with installation

    An important point to this upgrade

    One point of the Firmware Ver. 2 install that slipped my notice and that of quite a few others was that to get this firmware download into the A700:

    It has to be the ONLY file on the "freshly camera-formatted" piece of memory you load it from.

    There can be no other files, images or what-not on the CF or Memory Stick ... otherwise it will not load.

    That being said ... let the update begin.
