Fairly significant news as this is a first for any Sony digital camera, a user installable firmware upgrade. Sony has today posted firmware 2.0 for the DSC-V1, it doesn't claim to make any image quality or performance related changes to the camera but simply adds language choices for German, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese to the existing English and French. Installation is carried out by simply copying the firmware update file (.ASH) onto a Memory Stick and inserting it into the camera. At long last we may begin to see Sony post user installable fixes for camera issues!
