Great news for underwater photographers using the Sony RX100 series! Sony has just released a firmware update – version 2.0, aimed specifically towards underwater photographers with two incredibly helpful updates:
- Underwater Auto feature in the White Balance settings.
- Flash Off mode when the Flash unit is popped-up (finally!).
The firmware update also improves the overall stability of the camera.
Up until now, the two above features were the major disadvantages compared to the Canon G7XII, but luckily Sony realized this in time and issues a fix.
The Underwater Auto mode is a blessing for those who don’t like messing around with custom WB and Kelvin settings and the Flash Off mode is excellent news for Fantasea housing users, who up until now were very frustrated that the flash can’t be turned off once it has been popped up!
We strongly advise updating your camera firmware, according to the instructions here*:
* Choose your operating system and go to the Firmware tab to download.
