Sony NEX-7 in Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Camera

Sony NEX-7 Front Angle
Sony has announced a new firmware for the Sony NEX-7 that adds additional functionality and improved image quality with wide-angle lenses, among other updates: 

From Sony: Sharper shooting with free firmware update for NEX-7 camera

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.

Registered NEX-7 customers can update their camera from 18th October by visiting www.sony.co.uk/support/en/product/NEX-7/updates
