Last week I wrote about a possible new SLT A-mount firmware release in early July. Now SAR reader Laszlo (Thanks) spotted that hint about a new 1.05 firmware update for the A57 on Sony UK’s website. So many times we were a bit disappointed about the Sony firmware update fixes because they didn’t actually improve the JPG engine. But if the rumor we posted last week is correct than we will finally get a noticeable improvement on the JPG engine. These could be the new fw updated:
1) Added Lens Correction
2) Updated Jpg Engine (based on the honami smartphone project).
3) Revisions to menu structure
4) Revisions to video capture rates
keep fingers crossed!
