New Sony Menus Are For Future Cameras Like Sony a7SIII, Sony a7RV, Sony a7IV, Sony a9III, etc…


Sony told tweakers.net that the new Sony menus won’t be coming to old cameras via firmware update because they were designed for Sony’s new chipset. It sounds like the BIONZ XR chip is substantially different from the previous BIONZ X which is featured in cameras like the Sony a9II and Sony a7RIV.

I’m pretty sure Sony could do it if they wanted to so it might be worth the community applying some pressure, but Sony generally doesn’t dedicate resources to improving their cameras after launch. The only major improvement I can think of that Sony has offered is real-time AF which was a big deal, but they haven’t offered much before or since and the cameras that received the update all use the same chipset.
