Re: AS test under way

I didn't see your results posted. What did you find?

I installed the BRD file also and I'd swear that the AF is a little faster, but I can't prove it.

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.
