Sony bietet eine neue Firmware 2.00 (2015-06-16) für die Sony ILCE-6000 zum kostenlosen Download an.
Gegenüber der zwei Monate alten Firmware 1.21 bringt diese eine schnellere Hochfahrzeit und Unterstützung für das XAVC-S-Format. Seltsamerweise werden aber nicht alle Verbesserungen früherer Updates aufgezählt. Auf den amerikanischen Seiten wird als letzter Stand zuvor die über ein Jahr alte Version 1.20 ausgewiesen.
