Just reading about the v.4 update that is just out it seems.
Looks like a good move by all accounts.

Looks like a no-brainer to update, better high ISO noise reduction and 2EV step bracketing for HDR fans
Though it looks like the Sony Japan site is overloaded so I might have to wait until it is released worldwide.
I'm going to try after work, but the worldwide release must be round the corner.
The A900 is due a press release today also I think.
The Sony Press Release is out now.
Or you could even use the ePz front page
I've just updated to V.4 and its a great improvement in noise reduction, ISO3200 was usable before in some instances, but now even more so, and going down to 1600 - 800 is really good.
The 2 stop bracketing I'll have to try in the field sometime in the week.

About time they brought this out for the a300/350.
The official release of the A700 v4 firmware is now out on the Sony Support site, complete with installation instructions.
They also now list the changes made:-
Improvements and solved issues
* The choice to select auto exposure bracketing (single & continuous) with 3 shots in 2 EV steps has been added.
* The choice to turn [Off] the High ISO NR feature has been added.
* Improvement of the image quality in high ISO setting.
* Improvement of the auto white balance and D-Range Optimizer performance.
* Improvement of reliability for communication between camera body and vertical grip.
one minor irk with the firmware updates - does it really have to reset my file numbering each time?
