AS test under way

First, thanks a lot to siuba for telling us about the firmware being available on the web!

I first tried to rename mlt16us.app to mlt16.app and install it on my A1, but that caused a "card error" on the camera. Then I tried to install the file with original name mlt16.app, and that went thorogh without errors, allthough I had not included mlt16.brd on the cf-card. I had read somewhere that the .brd file wasn't needed.

After spending hours testing the AS performance togwther with my Olympus tcon-17 I found that the new firmware made no difference. The only difference I found was a difference in the focus distance reading in manual focus mode when Tele was selleted in the setup menu.

Then I reinstalled the firmware with the mlt16.brd file included on the cf card, and repeated the AS test shooting. I am just about to start processing the results, but it looks like I am now getting a significant improvement. I'll post the results as soon as I have completed the processing.

improve performance with ANY tele/WA converter such as .8x Ily 08b
or 1.8x Raynox?

Would just add my two cents here: updated my A1 bought in Russia
with mlt16.app and mlt16.brd from links below, went without a
glitch. Followed instructions to the point. Camera had Ver. 1.02e,
now lists Ver. 1.10e. Used a separate (bundled) CF card, took one
picture right before updating, hence file numbering preserved.
