This camera shake compensation system is effective for shooting steadier, clearer movies and still images. Initially different firmware was used in GEN1 and GEN2, but later on the firmware for GEN1 and GEN2 was merged into 1 firmware release and the colour scheme became a run-time configuration item. The α6500 even offers 14-stop latitude at S-Log3 setting. How can I get a copy of the manual? Individual chapters can be downloaded directly from this web page.
The current version date for each chapter and appendix is shown in the right column of the table of contents on this web page. However, unlike NTG1 models, the NTG2 COMAND was unable to play MP3 discs. To use the navigation at the same time as listening to an audio disc requires the optional CD changer. Like NTG4 models, it supports the Media Interface.
