Full firmware changelogs for sd Quattro (v1.01-v1.12) and sd Quattro H (v1.01-v1.08) - 2016-2018
7

It's not possible to get the entire firmware changelogs for sd Quattro and sd Quattro H from Sigma, so I'm posting them here for convenience.

Sigma sd Quattro

v1.12

  • It has corrected the phenomenon whereby the camera freezes after reactivation from LCD Auto Off if the Viewfinder Mode or LCD Mode settings have been opened from the main menu.
  • It has shortened the time to recognize the card when an SDXC card is used.

v1.11

  • It has corrected the phenomenon whereby X3F files that have been extracted from X3I files cannot be developed a second time, if values are adjusted and saved onto the files using SIGMA Photo Pro.

v1.10

  • It has become possible to automatically retract the lens barrel of the 70mm F2.8 DG MACRO | Art, when the camera’s power is turned off.
  • It has set the maximum shutter speed in SFD (Super Fine Detail) Mode to 1/500 sec., so as not to duplicate shutter speeds of the individual images.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that the X3F/X3I images taken with SIGMA Capture Pro cannot be developed properly when the value adjusted by SIGMA Photo Pro is saved to the file.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that the images occasionally show some green or magenta color rendering after updating the firmware.

v1.09

  • It has improved the camera operation in low temperatures. Inconsistent performance of the viewfinder, main display, shutter and image saving has been improved.

v1.08

  • It has improved the image quality of the displayed files, when checked on the main display or through the viewfinder or output via HDMI.

v1.07

  • It has corrected the phenomenon that it does not display lens names properly or images with accurate brightness in some image processing software. This is due to errors with the lens profiles recorded in the images.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that the cameras do not synchronize properly when the ELECTRONIC FLASH EF-610 DG SUPER SA-STTL is attached and the shutter speed is faster than the fixed synchronization speed selected in the FP Flash mode.

v1.06

  • It has changed the file structure of X3F and X3I files and enabled the camera to offer faster processing speeds.
  • It is possible to start up the camera faster.
  • It has improved the color reproduction performance during indoor shooting when AWB is selected.
  • It has improved the algorithm for the noise reduction in JPEG format.
  • It is possible that selector buttons can move the focus frame without using focus frame button.
  • It is possible to set the slowest limit for the shutter speed while shooing ISO Auto.
  • It is possible to allocate the “LV Magnification Display” function to the FUNC button of the Power Grip PG-41.
  • It is possible to display the shooting information on the sub monitor when checking the recorded images.
  • It has improved the accuracy of dimming when used with the ELECTRONIC FLASH EF-630 SA, the ELECTRONIC FLASH EF-610 DG SUPER SA-STTL, the ELECTRONIC FLASH EF-610 DG ST SA-STTL and the ELECTRONIC FLASH MACRO EM-140 DG SA-STTL.
  • It has changed the specification of the Super Fine Detail (SFD) mode that a warning message appears when the battery is low, and shooting in the SFD mode becomes unavailable.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that the lens description in the EXIF data of JPEG images was not displayed properly. This was identified when the JPEG image was developed from the RAW data processed internally on the camera.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that Auto Power OFF function took longer when some of the lenses with OS mechanism were attached.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that there was some noise in the right side of the images, when DNG files were processed.
  • SIGMA Photo Pro ver. 6.5.4 or later is required to process the RAW data (X3F and X3I files) taken by the sd Quattro with firmware version 1.06.

v1.05

  • It has corrected the phenomenon that some noise in the left part of the display monitor can be found, when the magnification ratio is set to 4x and the focusing of the image is adjusted.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that the images taken by the SIGMA 100-400mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM | Contemporary occasionally show some irregular color rendering.

v1.04

  • It is possible to save images in DNG format (RAW 12bit).
  • It is compatible with the Live View Display of Sigma Capture Pro.
  • It is compatible with the SFD mode of Sigma Capture Pro.
  • It offers faster AF speed of lenses from the Contemporary, Art and Sports lines by about 10 - 30%, and has improved the AF accuracy as well.
  • When used with the SIGMA ELECTRONIC FLASH EF-630 for SIGMA, it has improved the color rendering of the White Balance’s Flash mode in (it requires the latest firmware for the EF-630 for SIGMA as well).
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that the AF Shooting button did not work while the camera was using AF Lock.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that adjustments on the marked images could occasionally freeze the software when the card has an X3I file in it.
  • It has improved the general operation of the software to achieve better stability.

v1.03

  • It corrects the phenomenon where the camera stops responding to any operation after pressing [AF Capture] button, [AF Drive Only] button, and/or [MF capture] button on SIGMA Capture Pro during shooting using SIGMA Capture Pro.

v1.02

  • It has improved the AF focusing speed and accuracy.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon where Auto Bracketing or SFD Mode does not work properly when Custom Mode is selected.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that the camera sometimes cannot be turned off or go to sleep even when Power Switch or LOCK Switch are operated during image processing after shooting.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that the camera could freeze depending on the timing at which the monitor display changes to another display.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that images do not appear when looking into the viewfinder and turning Power Switch on, while LCD Monitor Display is set to Viewfinder Mode or LCD Off Mode and Monitor Select Switch is set to FINDER or AUTO.
  • It has changed the specification to initially display selectable languages when all camera settings are reset to factory defaults with “Reset Settings”

v1.01

  • It has improved stability of the camera’s operation and corrected the phenomenon whereby the camera may occasionally freeze while shooting.
  • It has corrected the phenomenon that, depending on camera settings, shooting via SIGMA Capture Pro 1.2 did not operate the camera properly.
