New A7/s/r and A6000 firmware test videos.

Sony A7 Firmware 1.10 vs. 2.00 startup time comparison

As you know the A7/s/r and A6000 cameras got a firmware update. Here are two new testvideos. The one above shows the very small start-up time improvement on the A7. While the video below shows what could be a slightly autofocusing improvement in low light (too difficult to say if it’s a real improvement or just a wrong feeling).

Sony A7 camera gets “flatten” by a truck :)

Share

This happens when a A7 gets run over by a car. It suddenly looses one space dimension :)
The owner still managed to sell that 2D A7 for $20 on eBay (Click here). Chapeau!

Thanks Alex for sharing this :)
