    * The effect may not be obtained depending on the shooting environment and the scene where the subject is moving, when the face is small, oblique face/side profile, part of the face is hidden.
  3. [Save/load communication settings to card] has been added to the menu. Network settings can now be inherited between cameras of the same model.
  4. [Panning Assist] has been added to the menu. When panning with a compatible lens, “camera shake correction” and “subject blur correction” are performed during exposure.

  8. After updating to firmware version 1.4.0, when using the electronic shutter for high-speed continuous shooting, the phenomenon that the original tracking performance of Servo AF may not be obtained depending on the shooting conditions has been corrected.
