  • • Made the following improvements:

    • – The camera would sometimes fail to focus on the subject in the focus area in pictures taken immediately after the battery was inserted.
    • – Reactivating the standby timer in User Settings mode U1, U2, or U3 would cause the shutter speed to change if the stored value was slower than 30 s.
    • – Pictures viewed by rotating the main command dial after zooming in on an image in “tall” (portrait) orientation in the viewfinder would not display correctly.
    • – Jitter would occur in movies recorded while footage was being output to an HDMI device with 3840×2160; 60p or 3840×2160; 50p selected for Frame size/frame rate in the MOVIE SHOOTING MENU.
