A1 1.31 FW Update - Better/Faster Bird Eye Focus
4

It cooled down considerably here in Southern California and at this mornings walk in the Marsh it seems some of the smaller birds have returned to the trees.

This was my first opportunity to check out the improved A1 firmware with the 200-600.  It was overcast, and although the light was not great , I could easily see that bird eye focus had improved greatly with the new release.

Particularly, it was noticeably faster and was able to easily identify the birds eye on distant tiny birds where this had been a challenge with the prior firmware releases.

Below is an example of a shot of an Ann's hummingbird at some distance with the crop below.
