  1. Thanks Steve!!!!!!

  2. I have tried the upgrade twice and it still has not executed. There are conflicting directions and a need to start a current MAC with OS 10.6 or 10.7 with the 32 bit kernel startup. I will probably call Sony about this.


  3. Press 3 and 2 simultaniously while booting. Try again.

  4. That doesn’t work even in 32 bits on Mac OSX Lion.

  5. It works now! Sorry!

  6. hi steve, will you test the nex5n again if there’s an improvement indeed in the AF? thanks.

  7. AF is much improved, watch the video

  8. If Sony is listening, numbered power settings for the flash would be welcome. I’d prefer totally manual flash control. I had an old Olympus point ‘n shoot that enabled me to set up a single flash on a scale of 1-10.

  9. a bit reluctant given that I am shooting a dance performance next month. last thing i want is a chasing focus!!! i’d like to see what others are experiencing.

  10. My e-mount lens take way too many revolutions to focus from far to near. I’ve grown quite accustomed to manual focus because of my voigtlander lens, but need the OSS. So I wonder if a firmware upgrade can fix or add an option to change it. Like a mouse setting for acceleration and distance. I’d like to get from near to far in 1/4 turn or so, but am still open to the slower and more careful decellerated focus for micro focus adjustments. Any ideas?

  11. Longer set exposure would be nice

  12. Steve,

    What about the issue of NEX 5N freezing constantly? My unit just got stupid and seems to freeze every time I turn it on and take few pictures. Any reports from other users?

  13. I have personally never had that issue or have I heard of anyone else having it (n one has written me to say so). Are you still under warranty?

  14. Just back from Canada, shooting with NEX 5N. Shutter froze shooting whales over water and again trying to shoot scenery from inside car

  15. I taught i am the only one having the same issue with my NEX5N. I notice it would freeze up when using the 10 sec timer while using the tracking focus at the same time, try tapping the screen twice while holding the shutter button, i can assure you that it would freeze 9 out of 10 times. Does anyone else have the same issue? I am using the kit lens that came with it 18-55 lens

  16. I had my NEX 5N repaired by Sony last year (water damage). I now notice that the Background Defocus feature will not automatically reset to original status. All other creativity features, such as brightness, color, vividness, will automatically reset. Does anyone have this problem? Firmware version is 1.02.
