    Hi everyone

    I'm currently running 1.21 fw on my SJ7 star. I have noticed 2 bugs:

    ISO bug: When I manually set iso to a specified value, only the first shot is taken with the correct value (100 iso, for example). The others are taken at variable iso values (like AUTO setting), but the display shows 100 iso.

    MIC SENSITIVITY bug: When I manually set volume sensitivity to a specified value, only the first video is taken with the correct value (50% for example).
    The others are taken at default value but the display shows 50%.

    I think these bugs were related to similar behaviour, I've noticed them also on older fw versions.

    The mic issue has been reported but, please, report it, too. Someday someone might pull their finger out and fix it. Maybe. Possibly. Some day. Grrrrr...

    It really is distressing and not a little annoying to see the firmware development process run off the rails. In any project, if you can't get the basics right, the advanced stuff stands little chance of coming out right. The SJ7 deserves better firmware than it's getting now.

    FYI - as I posted on the SJ7 forum, this afternoon I shot about 40 minutes of 1080@60 fps. EIS worked, imaging was surprisingly good as lighting went from sunset (clear sky) to downright dark, except for my headlights on the road. Important for this thread, the camera didn't crash or freeze or otherwise misbehave. All of this is, of course, under V1.21, release version.

    Too bad the mic wouldn't switch off and the image wasn't rotated. Feh.
