I am very pleased with my HX9V, but I do have a few suggestions for possible firmware updates.
Does anyone else have any ideas?
How can we best communicate our ideas to the developers?
Here are my thoughts:
Suggestions for firmware updates to HX9V (and other Cybershots)
1/ Option to turn GPS on (or off) from position information page
2/ Add a continuous shooting mode
ie hold down shutter button and camera continues taking pictures (refocusing for each shot) as quickly as possible (depending on shooting conditions and file size) until finger lifted from shutter button (or card is full)
Include this function as fourth option: single / continuous / burst / bracket
3/ Increase bracket range to +/- 2EV
4/ Add function to ‘DISP’ – hold down 2 secs to enter panel brightness menu
(failing this, include panel brightness in top menu )
5/ Provide ‘automatic’ panel brightness option
6/ Save display detail settings separately for playback mode
eg detailed when shooting, clear screen on playback
