Published: April 9, 2020

Sony-a9-II-FW-2-00

Sony a9 II Firmware Update 2.00 adds Hi Frequency flicker function, which allows you to reduce the impact of flickering of artificial light sources (e.g. digital signage, electronic signboards, LED lights, etc.), by more finely adjusting the shutter speed. Additionally, this firmware update adds a menu setting many of you have requested which allows you to select the option to close the shutter when you turn off the camera to prevent dust or debris from adhering to the image sensor when you change lenses.

Benefits and Improvements

• Adds the Hi Frequency flicker function, which allows you to reduce the impact of flickering of artificial light sources (e.g. digital signage, electronic signboards, LED lights, etc.), by more finely adjusting the shutter speed

NOTE: As of April 9th, 2020, Hi Frequency flicker function is only accessible in the updated camera menu and cannot be accessed through Imaging Edge Remote, Imaging Edge Mobile or Remote Camera Tool software.

• Improves the Face/Eye Priority in the AF function:

    • When set to a custom key, the Face/Eye Priority in the AF function can be activated or deactivated each time the custom key is pressed
    • If Face/Eye Priority is already set to custom key, this improvement will be available after the camera is updated

• Improves the Remote Camera Tool function by adding support for displaying Focus Frame for almost all scenes

NOTE: Version 2.00 (or later) of the Remote Camera Tool is required. Please update to the latest version.

• Adds a function to close the shutter when you turn off the camera to prevent dust or debris from adhering to the image sensor when you change lenses
