Re: With the latest firmware...
In reply to photohounds, 7 months ago

I don't find eye focus, or indeed face recognition, work with dogs.

Thanks folks - no I have not upgraded the firmware, I'm a computer person in another life, so I don't risk bricking things for no reason, and as at now I've seen nothing in the FW upgrades that I want.
I set the camera to 14x by instinct as soon as I pick it up. I leave it set there anyway, but I like to be sure!
14x is just not enough. Would more recent firmware let me take it in tighter?

This might be a stupid question already covered by others, Louis, do you set the eye focus feature as well?
That of course, is presuming you want a dog's face in focus in the first place?
I think you are unlikely to brick the camera/lenses as they download the file first, then apply it - like a phone does. At least that's my experience.
They DO advise a full charge which is only sensible.
I even got 100 ISO with my OMD EM-5 a few weeks back!

Well designed gear performs better for longer than well marketed gear.
