Re: Sony Alpha 1 Firmware 1.30 adds 8K 4:2:2 10bit Recording and S, M & L Lossless RAW

Thanks for the heads-up, installing now.

Strange that I never hear about updates from Sony even though I have an account with them. I always find out here. Must have clicked some "don't bother me" button that turned off notifications or something.

It seems I missed V1.2 completely - oops. I don't use FTP though, and "improves operational stability" just winds me up. I want to know *what* improved, dammit!

V1.3 looks useful. I can use the 8k 10:2:2 (fast image capture for astro stacking and fast focus bracketing for micro) and the S, M, L raws are a nice addition. Be interesting to see what they do to frame rates and buffer fill times. Of course, the "operational stability" mystery tour is still there. Grumble.

...and update has completed while I typed. Thought I'd messed up in my excitement by forgetting to save my settings and custom menus etc. Thankfully,  they were preserved. Phew. Will have a play tomorrow.
