Sony Firmware Fix 2.10 and 4.10

As promised, Sony just released updated firmware for A7III, A7RIII and A9 cameras. In my previous article I mentioned that Sony will release update in mid-December.

Today they published firmware fixes, versions 2.10 (for A7III & A7RIII) and 4.10 (for A9). You can download the updates here: Sony A7III, Sony A7RIII & Sony A9.

Benefits and Improvements from the latest update for A7III & A7RIII

  • Improves the following:
    • In rare cases, the camera may stop functioning while writing RAW data onto an SD card that has already been used multiple times
      Notes:
      • This may also cause abnormalities in the files managing the images, preventing the images from displaying on the camera.
      • No image data in the memory card will be corrupted or deleted aside from the data that was being written at the time the interruption occurred.
  • Solves the problem caused by a specific third-party memory card, which would not be recognised by Sony cameras
  • Improvement of the overall stability of the camera

[Note 1] When updating to this version from a lower version than “Ver. 4.00”, the FTP transfer feature and Wired LAN settings are initialised.
You will have to configure these two items again. The names of FTP server 1, FTP server 2, and FTP server 3 will be kept, but other items will be initialised. If you have set the Wired LAN Settings to Manual, each of the manually configured settings will be initialised and the Wired LAN Settings will be set to Auto.

[Note 2] When the camera is updated from Ver. 3.00 to this version, the registered settings for Fn (function) menu may not be kept. In that event, please customise the menu to your preferred settings again. Setting: [MENU]-[Camera Settings2]-[Function Menu Set.]

Hopefully, all issues with writing to the SD cards will be solved with these fixes.
