・Improves the precision of bounce flash shooting when ELECTRONIC FLASH EF-610 DG SUPER SA-STTL and ELECTRONIC FLASH EF-610 DG ST SA-STTL are used.

CAUTION:This firmware update requires two files. Firstly, download and save those files on a SD/SDHC/SDXC card. Secondly, start updating the firmware with the saved data in the card.
Once you finish the firmware update of DP1 Merrill to Ver. 1.03 or of DP2 Merrill to Ver. 1.04, or if your camera is DP3 Merrill, it is necessary to install Sigma Photo Pro 5.5 to develop the RAW images.
The previous versions (Sigma Photo Pro 5.4.1 or earlier) cannot process it properly.
