Month-Old Sony A-700 Gets a Firmware Update

Sony Alpha-700 DSLR

Barely a month after its release last September 6, the Sony A-700 DSLR is getting a firmware update.

Sony says the update improves image sharpness and reduces noise under certain circumstances, like it was not that good when it was released. It also improves flash control at very short distances with non-ADI control lenses, according to Sony.

It turns out that some of the A-700 DSLRs did not have the version 2.0 firmware when released. If you own the Alpha 700 and your firmware is not up to speed, Sony advises that you download and install the new firmware.

“Although these improvements are subtle, it is recommended that customers make the update to improve the camera and application software performance,” Sony says.
