1. Click on the picture of your camera or type in your model in the search textbox.
2. Click on the Downloads Tab.
3. Select your operating system
4. Click on 'Go to Download Page' link
5. Please follow the detailed instructions and illustrations provided by Sony.

Upgrading of firmware is a risky procedure; do it with utmost care and attention:
When performing the firmware upgrade, please use a fully charged rechargeable battery pack NP-FW50 or the AC adaptor AC-PW20 (sold separately).

Do not remove the battery or AC adaptor during the upgrade; otherwise, the camera may become inoperable due to the sudden power shutdown.

Remove the memory card from the camera beforehand.

When using an A-mount lens with the LA-EA2 Mount Adaptor (sold separately) and setting to use the AF Micro Adj. function, the registered value is reset

Izzit? I went to Sony Center at The Curve few weeks ago and saw RM2399 for A6000 body only wo. With the SELP1650 kit lens it cost RM2699. rclxub.gif

If its RM1900 for body + kit lens means body only should be around RM1600-1700?. Then its a no brainer sweat.gif

When you go to Sony center, you should ask them for cash price. They have to display the expensive price because of Sony's requirement. You might be surprised with what they can offer you (very good discount) sometimes. However, that is not applicable to EVERY Sony center. This is what I got from the manager of Sony Center in Sibu, Sarawak.

New Version yah ? hmm.gif I rike brows.gif

yes its still worth it, not the age issue, but the replacement, A6300, cost 5K for the body, so 2399 still worthy, and since a6k has near to zero flaw camera... unless you Need 4k video on the A6300 else A6k is the prefect rounded camera.

ever since the first generation of NEX, the 16mp sensor has provided a very decent usable 1600/3200 iso. anything more is just extra. the color, wb is also very accurate even vs later camera like 5d3, 6d which i used to shoot milkyway with me that result is diff white balance detection in every shot.

here is from nex3, jpeg and stitch over 30 images.
