I have written a lot of news stories on firmware updates over the past few months, but this is the first for a flashgun. I'm not even sure I was aware that flashguns received firmware updates, but Sony has just released two in preparation for its new sports camera.

The flashes being updated are the Sony HVL-F60RM2 and HVL-F46RM, two of Sony's flagship wireless radio control external guns and the best Sony flashguns on the market. The updates are the same for each flash, and offer an update on stability when charging along with compatibility with the global shutter on the Sony A9 III.
