Sony a7R III Firmware Update v1.10 adds Pixel Shift Multi as a Shooting Mode menu option, allows bracketing during silent shooting with uncompressed RAW and the ability to fine-tune the peaking display level for S-Log shooting
This update (version 1.10) provides the following benefits:
• Adds the menu option to select Pixel Shift Multi Shooting (On: Shooting Interval 0.5sec)
[Notes: When the camera is connected to PC, please use the latest version of the Imaging Edge software
When using an A-mount lens via an adaptor (LA-EA1/ LA-EA2/ LA-EA3/ LA-EA4), the interval might be slightly longer.]
• Adds support for bracketing during silent shooting with uncompressed RAW
• Adds support for tuning of the peaking display level for S-Log shooting
• Makes improvements for a condition where the Eye AF does not work with certain camera settings
• Makes improvements for a condition where Viewfinder Brightness is not reflected correctly in the Manual setting
• Improves overall stability of camera
Before Updating Firmware Please Read:
DxO Mark has awarded the new Sony a7R III a score of 100 – the highest score DxO has ever given to a mirrorless camera.
“Sony A7R III achieves an overall DxOMark sensor score of 100 points, the same as the Nikon D850. This makes it the highest-scoring mirrorless system camera to date, beating the A7R II by two points.” — DxO
Bear in mind that his upgrade focused on performance. The boost in image quality is a bonus! Squeezing another 2 points out of an existing sensor is no small feat – especially when it takes it to a best-in-class 100 point score!
