If you could give canon your wish list for improvements to the software/firmware of the EOS what would it be?
Three come to mind for me at present:
1. Replace the IMG prefix on file name with your Initials like the Nikon does.
2. expand the serial count in the file name. Could give you a better image count and less Roll over? (in Camera)
But I bet there is a Rule when dealing with file folders and such.)
3. ability to see how many total times your shutter was fired.
Good ideas Ronald. I second your suggestions.
You ideas are easy and cheap to implement.
As a software project manager, analyst and team leader programmer I
estimate each of these would cost Canon less than $1,000 to add and debug them.
It would not cost much more than that for documentation and tech support.
(And even if they keep compatibility with the filename 8.3 system,
they could get 99,999 image numbering just by dropping the "_"
and lose nothing.)
My requests are for:
1. Focus Bracketing
: automatic and Training modes
(as used by other cameras and add-on devices)
2. Time Lapse images
: by including minimal Intervalometer functions
Same thoughts - Canon can invest a few hundred dollars to add these functions -
and make so many photographers happy.
