Optimized functions in detail

Focus on DNG

Thanks to a separate DNG mode

Firmware update 2.0 now makes it possible to shoot DNG RAW files separately, rather than in combination with JPG files. The benefits for you: save space on your memory card and you no longer need to delete unwanted JPG files. JPG mode and the combined JPG-DNG mode are still available for whenever you need them.

More creative freedom

Thanks to a three-fold optimization of the autofocus function

The 1-field autofocus metering area can now be selected in three different sizes: small, medium and large. However, AF point movement in digital zoom mode for focal lengths of 35 and 50 mm has now been limited, to avoid focusing on objects outside the zoom range. The Face Detection function has also been optimized: as soon as a face is detected, AF now automatically reverts to multi-field autofocus mode.

Improved user-friendliness

Thanks to an expanded EVF mode

Simplified navigation makes it possible to shoot even faster. That is the reason for the optimization of the camera’s EVF mode: pressing the menu or play button now allows the photographer to switch straight to menu control or picture review on the LCD screen.
