Sony a7 II: Updated The Firmware From 3.30 to 4.0.

I have had the Sony a7 II for exactly a month and this was my 2nd firmware update!

I am NOT used to updating camera firmware that often. But, to be fair, for reasons that nobody seems to be able to explain, my a7 II, with zero shutter actuations, came with downlevel firmware, i.e., version 3.10 which had been released in November 2016, 6 months prior to me ordering the camera.

Updating to 4.0 was a breeze. Updater worked, flawlessly, first time around. Took about 14 minutes from my reckoning, but I wasn’t keeping careful track. It was pretty quick and the progress bar was moving along nicely.

Took about 80 pictures following the update. Didn’t notice anything awry.

This is what 4.0, released just a few days ago, viz. June 8, 2017, is supposed to do:

Irony Of Theresa May’s Embarrassment, Margaret Thatcher Had A Landslide 34 Years & 1 DAY Ago!

hjby Anura Guruge


June 8, 2017 vs June 9, 1983.

What a difference.


June 9, 1983 with Margaret Thatcher.

I voted, for her, in this election, in Harpenden, Herts.

June 8, 2017 with Theresa May.

Though eligible to vote, I did NOT because the U.K.
does not have a good mail-in balloting scheme.

Quite a difference. Maggie walked away with 397 seats. May has 317. That is a 80-seat difference.

To be fair Maggie had the BRILLIANT Falkland Island victory to bouy her.

Wonder if Theresa gave the June 9th date any thought when she called the election for June 8.

Notice the wooden paddle in the middle picture of the last row. It was inside the cabin of the BIG yellow amphibian.


It was a good, fun, uplifting ‘day’. The weather cooperated in the end. No rain. Some sun. Some wind, sometimes quite gusty; blew over a vendor tent. But I think everybody had a great time. Way more folks than I had expected given the ‘storm’ overnight. Good job. Well done.
