Sony has released a new firmware update for the A9 that ‘improves the image quality’ of the camera, and fixes a number of bugs reported by users.

Sony didn’t specify what it meant by ‘improvements to image quality’, nor by its claim that the update boosts the ‘overall stability of the camera.’

Sony A9 firmware version 1.10 also fixes an issue where raw files have been reported to disappear when SDXC or microSDXC memory cards are used in certain smartphones.

Sony adds: “Raw data recorded by the ILCE-9 with firmware Ver. 1.00 or 1.01 could disappear. Please backup your raw data files, even if you’re updating the system software to Ver. 1.10.”

Sony’s A9 firmware 1.10 also adds support for the “Eye AF” function with A-mount lenses via the LA-EA3 mount adapter.

This function is only for A-mount lenses which can adapt to 8 or 10fps (maximum) tracking AF-C shooting, Sony says.
