Sony just released new firmware updates for its E-mount lenses, NEX-7, SLT-A36, A57, A65 and A77.
First up are details about αNEX-7 Firmware v1.01. This update will realize two community requests as well as three detail improvements. This update will enable the ability to disable Movie Record button (which will be helpful in avoiding inadvertently starting movie recording) along with the expansion of EV Bracketing to include 3 frame 1EV, 2EV and 3EV increments. αNEX-7 Firmware v1.01 also improves auto playback responsiveness along with improving image quality when using a wide angle lens. Last item to note with this firmware update is the improvement of indication when setting “Flexible Spot” AF mode.
Next is E-mount lens firmware v.2, for use with Hybrid AF E-mount on the αNEX-5R/αNEX-6. This specifically applies to the 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 Standard Zoom Lens ( SEL1855), the 55-210mm f/4.5-6.3 Telephoto Lens (SEL55210), the 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 Telephoto Lens (SEL18200) and the 24mm f/1.8 Wide-Angle Prime Lens (SEL24F18Z) to enable Hybrid AF function with NEX-5R and NEX-6. It’s important to note that our E-mount lens firmware v2 is for the lens not the camera so it can be performed only with these lenses attached to Hybrid AF capable cameras (αNEX-5R/αNEX-6). Since these lenses were designed before the introduction of Hybrid AF, their firmware needed to be updated for Hybrid AF to function.
There is a v1.06 firmware update for SLT-α65V and SLT-α77V that includes the ability to enable/disable movie record button along with lens compensation (Chromatic Aberration, Distortion, Corner shading) for SAL30M28, SAL50F14, SAL2875, SAL1635Z, SAL2470Z, SAL35F14G, SAL70200G and SAL70400G lens models.
And lastly there is a v1.03 firmware update for the α37 (SLT-a37) and α57 (SLT-a57) that also includes the ability to enable/disable movie record button along with lens compensation (Chromatic Aberration, Distortion, Corner shading) for SAL30M28, SAL50F14, SAL2875, SAL1635Z, SAL2470Z, SAL35F14G, SAL70200G and SAL70400G models.

A month ago, Joachem de Vet did this piece showcasing other filmmakers on Vimeo using the Sony A-77 (just like I do). His story:
This video contains work from various filmmakers.
As a former Canon user I have made the switch to the Sony A77. Soon I began noticing that there was little talk on the web about the Sony Alpha A77′s video/film capabilities. The A77 is not embraced by the videographing community. My idea is that it should be, because it is one the most powerful hdslr’s on the market. To showcase the power and beauty of the A77 I’ve selected a few clips from talented filmmakers on Vimeo who had the guts to switch and try something new.

Guys over at the Digital Visual have this great video out shoot great cinematic scenes with the Sony NEX-5N. In order to produce such effects, they also posted a workflow on how to shoot cinematic shots on the Sony NEX-5N. Well as it is pretty standard across the Sony NEX lines and the new Sony Alpha A65 and A77, the workflow can pretty much be applied to all the aforementioned models. Try and out and see for your self.

Well, August is here, and do we have a busy August. Further to our post on the Nikon Press Event for the possible release of the D4, D800 and D400, good sources from sonyalpharumors indicates that Sony is having their own major release field day on 23 August 2011 (US date).
According to sonyalpharumors, Sony is prepping the release of the A77, A65, 16-50mm f/2.8 SSM and 24mm f/1.7 Zeiss E-mount Lens and maybe the NEX-5N, VG20 and couple more E-mount lenses.
