[Version 1.10]

• Modified the following phenomena.

• Improved the accuracy of level compensation at taking a picture with Auto Levels in the Image setting.

• Corrected the information of shooting setting in the captured images to correspond to them in the both a DNG file and the JPEG file recorded with a DNG file.
