All Improvements at a glance

  • Optimisation of the delete menu: The graphic user interface for the deletion of pictures has been revised.
  • Longer exposure times: Exposure times of up to four minutes are now possible at base ISO.
  • New continuous shooting mode with lower frame rate: An additional continuous shooting mode is now available (Continuous Low Speed, three frames per second).
  • ‘Load profile’ is now available in the favourites menu.
  • Aperture value in EXIF data: The camera compares the brightness measured through the lens with the measured ambient brightness to estimate the aperture used. This value is then written to the EXIF data. In some cases, the interpretation of the subject or scene may lead to incorrect estimation of the aperture value, for instance when shooting subjects or scenes with high contrast and black or white objects.
  • LED deactivation: The red LED on the back of the camera can now be deactivated in the control elements menu.
  • Auto-ISO setting: Auto-ISO for base ISO is set to the default value of ISO 200 to optimise dynamic range.
