Firmware updates for Sony’s α7 Mark III, α7R Mark III and DSC-RX0 cameras add new features and apply bug fixes.

Sony’s α7 III and α7R III gain firmware version 2.00 which adds the following new features and bug fixes:
1. Support of “SEL400F28GM”and “SEL24F14GM”

Optimisation of the optical image stabilization performance, and addition of a new image stabilisation mode of the lens (Mode 3)(Only “SEL400F28GM”).

Addition of a Function Ring(Lens) to the menu. Note: For the SEL400F28GM lens, the APS-C S35/Full Frame Sel. setting is assignable to the Function Ring in addition to Power Focus.

Addition of [Aperture Drive in AF] setting in the menu. *Using the lens “SEL400F28GM” or “SEL24F14GM”, when [Silent priority] is selected, the sound emitted by the aperture drive will be reduced. This is useful in shooting conditions where camera noise should be kept to a minimum. Note that Auto Focus may become slower when [Silent priority] is selected.

New features:
[AF Track Sens] can be assigned to a custom key.
When used with the LA-EA3 mount adaptor, all focus areas are supported. Note : Focus Area options added : Zone, Expand Flexible Spot, and Lock-on AF.
Bracket shooting is available during silent shooting when [File Format] is set to [RAW] or [RAW & JPEG] and [RAW File Type] is set to [Uncompressed].

Other improvements:
Improvement of the performance and the overall stability of the camera.
Better reproduction of the gradation of RAW pictures. Note: Imaging Edge software needs to be updated to benefit from the improvement in the RAW processing.
When shooting with a flash in an environment with flickering light sources, the stability of the exposure is improved.
Improvement of managing continuously shot images as a group.

Firmware version 3.00 for the DSC-RX0  adds a zoom function with three settings: Smart zoom, ClearImage Zoom and Digital Zoom, which are also supported when using the optional shooting grip VCT-SGR1. It also improves the overall stability of the camera.
