Supplement for Application’s Function

When using “a camera that has a [SteadyS. Focal Len.] focal length setting for SteadyShot” with “a lens that doesn’t allow communication with that camera”:

If a focal length is set in the lens profile, [SteadyS. Focal Len.] is automatically set to that focal length or the closest possible value. Otherwise, [SteadyS. Focal Len.] is automatically set to 8mm.

Focus Area Setting Displays for the NEX-5R, NEX-5T, and NEX-6

On the NEX-5R, NEX-5T, and NEX-6, depending on the firmware version, the terms for Focus Area setting displays may differ when used in applications and when used outside applications, as shown in the table below. The actual functions are the same.
