Sony announced yesterday a new firmware update for the mega awesome Sony A9 Mark II… Details can be found below and it looks like a few great features were included like closing the shutter when changing lenses to help keep dust out and more.
Adds the Hi Frequency flicker function, which allows you to reduce the impact of flickering of artificial light sources (e.g. digital signage, electronic signboards, LED lights, etc.), by more finely adjusting the shutter speed NOTE: The Imaging Edge Remote, Imaging Edge Mobile, and Remote Camera Tool software will not be supported after April 9th, 2020
Improves the Face/Eye Priority in the AF function:
When set to a custom key, the Face/Eye Priority in the AF function can be activated or deactivated each time the custom key is pressed
