Two new features were included in the firmware update: ISO 100 and small focus points.

ISO 100. In the ISO menu you'll notice ISO 100 is marked as LOW and ISO 200 is Recommended. This indicates that ISO 100 is actually ISO 200 over-exposed by one stop. For example, if the ISO 200 exposure was 1/100 @ f/4, and you shot it at 1/50 instead, you would be over-exposing by one stop. And 1/50 @ f/4 would be the proper exposure for ISO 100. The result would be highlight clipping and less dynamic range because ISO 200 is the optimal ISO for the sensor. As a benefit, shadows would receive more exposure and, consequently, less noise.

Small focus points. To implement this feature, do the following:

1. Click the left arrow on the control wheel to bring up focus points

2. Click on the Info button

3. Click the up/down arrows on the control wheel to select a smaller focus point

A very nice addition!

Thanks Thomas. The small focus point will be very useful!
