Bryan R, sent in a link for the newest Firmware 4.0 update for the Sony NEX-5/NEX-3/NEX-5C Series camera.  Many Bangkok Images Readers have purchased this camera and really enjoy it, so I'm sure they'll appreciate upgrading to the latest firmware revision which adds the "Picture Effect" feature and an manual focus "Peaking" function.  It also adds the Sony NEX logo from power on which will now show on the LCD screen when you first power up.

The Picture Effects you'll now have access to are listed as "Toy Camera", "Posterization B&W", "Posterization Color", "Pop Color", "Retro Photo", "Partial Green Color" and "Partial Red Color."  You'll also have manual focus peaking colors you can assign which basically show you in the focus mask where your strong focus is in relation to the frame.

The installation process is straightforward, but it does require a fully charged battery and connection to your computer via a mini-USB cable.  You can get the firmware upgrade here, and the PDF explaining the new functions here.
