New Sony NEX-7 Firmware V 1.03 now available!

sony-nex-7-03

This is a few days late and some of yuo may already have downloaded it but there is a new firmware out for the NEX-7 which adds a few things including the AF drive system for video shooting as well as the ability to enable or disable the movie button, which I know many have asked for many times. Also improves response times and IQ using wide-angle lenses. Take a look below at the list, and download it HERE for MAC OSX or HERE for Window (choose your version in the drop down menu).

Improvements over version 1.02:

Adds the AF drive system for movies

  • Note: The AF drive system for movies is added in order to enhance the scalability of future E-mount systems.
  • Benefits provided by previous updates and included in version 1.03:
  • Provides support for the SELP1650 automatic compensation compliant lens
  • Enables the SELP1650 lens to retract immediately after turning off the camera
  • Adds the capability to enable or disable the MOVIE button
  • Adds bracket shooting exposure settings (three frames / 1.0EV, 2.0EV, 3.0EV)
  • Improves response for showing auto review images
  • Improves image quality when using a wide-angle lens
  • Improves indication for using the “Flexible Spot” setting

  1. I have no additional options other than 50p 25fps when selecting the video recording setting of my Sony NEX 7 that I purchased in September 2013. Anyone know why?

  2. Hi there…will you kind enough to tell me how to update my sony nex 5n via SD/CF ? I’m having some problems tethering it to the computer and I would like to try to update it via SD/CF.
    The thing is that I don’t really like the version 1.02 and I would like to roll back to the version 1.01.
    Do you think you can help me out with this one?Thanks in advance!

  3. I think the only change for 1.03 is the first one : “The AF drive system for movies is added in order to enhance the scalability of future E-mount systems.” which I need a translation in order to make sense of. Since I don’t have any “future” e-mount systems yet, I don’t think I will bother to install this FW update. :))

  4. Thanks for posting the information on the software update. Can someone post a link to the update as I’ve never updated camera software before and the link would be helpful. Thanks in advance.

  5. anyone have experience with the improved firmware for wide angles? I am assuming this is only for Sony wide angle lenses and not adapted Leica or legacy lenses, etc.
