Sony Releases Firmware Update 2.0 for A6000

Sony has released a firmware update for the a6000, which reduces startup time and more importantly adds XAVC S support, giving the a6000 higher bit rate recording. The a6000 with the Firmware 2.0 update can now record 60p/30/24p in NTSC and 50p/25p in PAL.

The update also improves camera functions for several new camera lenses and improves power-on time after downloading the Smart Remote Control application, though that’s not likely a big issue for many users.
