Hi, what do you think of an open petition towards Canon to add camera features to R5/6 like the pre release capture function, and variable burst shooting speeds for the silent mode/electronic shutter, and last but not lease add the function to simply play optional click sounds when taking photos without the mechanic shutter.

I mean, to me these all doing sound like too difficult features to be implemented and would help out tremendously in certain cases and increase the value of these beautiful and capable cameras...

What do you think? And who’s with me?!

It’s not can they, it’s will they.

Granted, features do occasionally get added via firmware. Not too often, though.

My reaction was mainly the method. I suggest rather than posting here, you call Canon and ask for the feature(s) you want. Particularly if you’re a CPS member. A wishlist posted here won’t help.

I am a CPS member, have been for 30 years or something. But the thing is the firmware is written in Japan, and Canon Japan is closed as an oyster.

I'm with you, but I think it's very hard , if not impossible, to get any idea through to the developers in Japan. I'm just posting my ideas in several places in the hope it might be seen by someone with some influence..
