Sony a6500: Updating The Firmware From v1.01 To v.1.02.
The Sony a6500, though it has only been available as of November 29, 2016, is already at v1.02 of the firmware, 1.02 having been rushed out in early March to fix a rather nasty ‘dead camera’ scenario.
Version 1.01 was released on January 25, 2017 — just 57-days into its product life. Makes you think.
Version 1.02 was released 41 days later.
At this rate 1.03 should be out soon!
To be fair, the updating to 1.02 was easy, painless and quite quick. I didn’t time it, but I think it only took about 6 minutes. I could be wrong since I was not paying attention and was doing other things.
What I wanted to share with you was that updating to 1.02 was NOT an hassle.
Didn’t notice any changes after I did, BUT I have yet to run into any unexpected snags with this camera.
