Really, that doesn't make any sense. All of my computers are running Win 7 64.... Are you getting this from the Sony US site?

Edit: Nevermind, this is only for Vista and XP

Yeah, glad they added more range to the auto bracketing.
The lens corrections could be handy for the coming Zeiss lenses.
The movie button lockout is welcomed, though you have to menu dive for it.

I was hoping for a redesigned menu, more custom settings...

I hope my playback bug is cured.

More range for auto bracketing would be welcome, though both the A77 and the upcoming A99 is quite limited as well (only 3 shots for 2EV-though Canon is not much better). I wish Sony would follow Nikon on this.

Assuming it works with the coming Zeiss lenses. Since they aren't co-branded like the 24mm, I kind of doubt Sony will build correction profiles for them. I could be wrong, though.

also, how would they know which lens you have mounted on the camera to correct for?

i'm pretty excited about the bracketing increase, i thought they'd never do it. still no auto iso in manual mode though. :/


Well, so much for that video button guard that I sent you.

The biggest thing missing to me is still no option to set a minimum shutter speed for auto ISO.

Must been long time since I saw manufacturer actually doing what customers wanted. Kudos to Sony. I actually thought they dont care about their customers at all.. (like Nikon lately).

Yeah, good point. "The Guard" still seems a nice solution, since you can still push the video button with some effort.

Sorry, I am new to NEX cameras and have no idea how to install the firmware. I looked at the Sony website and see only software updates for my PC, nothing at all for the camera. And why would XP or Vista matter for camera firmware, isn't it loaded via mini usb cable?

64bit XP & Vista are not supported for the FW installer, 64bit Win7 is fine.

Download the FW, run it, turn on your Nex-7, go into the menu, head into settings, scroll down to usb, set it to mass storage, plug it in, check that the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon is in the task bar, if it is you're golden, just follow the updater prompts.

Yeah win7 64 pro here, and worked fine.

I was just playing with the bracketing, and found that in lower DR situations, it doesn't shoot 3 shots, just 1.

Also you can't use the remote or timer for bracketing... WTF?? That's retarded, sorry, Mentally challenged.

Can anyone else confirm?

Lightshow...just unfortunately confirmed that you can't use remote for bracketing on my system. Totally disappointed and bracketing is useless. I really hope we are missing something.
