  • • Made the following improvements:
    • – The camera focuses more readily on the subject in the center of the frame if it fails to detect the face or eyes of a portrait subject when Auto-area AF is selected for AF-area mode.
    • – Memory recall has been altered so that regardless of the focus mode selected, the focus position chosen via autofocus does not change if the shutter-release button is pressed halfway while memory recall is in effect.
  • • Fixed the following issues:
    • – 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.
    • – The movie-record button would not function with certain gimbals while video was being recorded to an external device via HDMI with 3840×2160; 30p3840×2160; 25p, or 3840×2160; 24p selected for Frame size/frame rate in the MOVIE SHOOTING MENU and 10 bit selected for Advanced > Output data depth in the SETUP MENU.
