Sony Releases Firmware Update Version 1.20 for RX100 IV and RX10 II Cameras

I just learned that Sony has released a firmware upgrade to Version 1.20 for both the RX100 IV and RX10 II camera models, which are quite similar in their menu options and operation. The upgrade provides the same change for both cameras. According to Sony, the purpose of the new firmware version is to “improve a focus shift condition with HFR (High Frame Rate) recording.” That problem evidently is the one discussed in this thread at the dpreview.com forums.

That is all the upgrade is designed to do, so, if you don’t use HFR recording (super-slow-motion video recording), you may not need the new firmware. However, I always install new firmware versions as they become available, and it probably is a good idea to install this one as well.

To get the new version for the RX100 IV, you can go to this link at Sony’s support site. You then have to select your computer’s operating system to get to the page with the file to download and the instructions for installing the update. Here is a link to the similar page for the RX10 II.
