    FEATURE REQUEST: DISABLE THE START OF THE PIXEL NOISE REDUCTION PROCEDURE ON LONG PRESS OF THE SHUTTER BUTTON.
    Description/Reason: This is most unwanted procedure: it has barely any effect on pixel noise and should not be so easily available. Any accidental longer pressure starts it without user's consent. It is not possible to cancel this stupid procedure and it wastes a lot of time and it is COMPLETELY USELESS and potentiially HARMFUL, if started without proper preparation (lens should be covered fot that in advance!).

    FEATURE REQUEST: RESTORE FOV 170 DEGREES
    Description/Reason
    : The camera was advertised with a property: 170 degrees FOV. But when some complained, that there are obstructions visible in the picture corners, when the camera is at maximum FOV and in the watertight case, the SJCAM team did reduce the FOV in updated FW-s, eliminating the 170 degrees FOV. This created many other problems, like white pixel noise, etc. Now a new type of the case is available. Please, let us to use 170 degrees FOV again! Those, who are bothered by the visible obstruction, can use smaller FOV, that could be selected manually.

    FEATURE REQUEST: RESTORE STARTUP ON SHORT PRESS OF THE POWER BUTTON.
    Description/Reason:
    The camera is not the fastest starter, by far! It got much worse, when the long press for startup was introduced. Please, restore the quickest possible way to get the camera operational!

    FEATURE REQUEST: PLEASE, LABEL THE VIDEO LAPSE SETTING '1 MINUTE' CORRECTLY, ACCORDING TO THE ACTUAL INTERVAL.
    Description/Reason:
    This setting (the label in the menu) does not correspond to the actual interval inbetween conecutive frames.
    The actual interval is more like 10 minutes, not 1 minute. The same problem is present also in firmwares of the 4000 series cameras. When the '1 Minute' Video Lapse setting is selected, then 5.5 hours of videolapse recording produces only ca 1.1 second long video at 30 fps. Should be 5.5 x 60 / 30 = 11 seconds.

    Other camera models (maybe even the latest model) may also have this problem present, so please, test other models too! It is not nice if users must find out by themselves, what are actual intervals. For an interval so long, it takes hours of recording time to figure out, that the label is wrong.

    Everyone can check if this problem is present in his/her camera by recording 1 hour of video lapse at 1 Minute setting and then at 30 Seconds setting. The first setting should result with 2x shorter video. If the problem is present, then the video at 1 Minute setting is much shorter than the video with 30 Seconds setting.

    See this video, for example:
    The first 8 seconds are recorded at 1 Minute setting, the last 8 seconds at 30 Seconds setting. The decceleration in frames speed is clearly more than 2x (notice the difference in night lengths).

    FEATURE REQUEST: AUTOMATICALLY SWITCH TO BATTERY POWER IF EXTERNAL POWER IS LOST AND RETURN TO EXTERNAL POWER WHEN IT'S RECONNECTED, WITHOUT INTERRUPTION IN VIDEO RECORDING, IF IT IS GOING ON AT THE MOMENT OF SWITCHING THE POWER SOURCE.
    Description/Reason:
    It is really annoying, that the camera stops recording, when an external power source is switched.

    Please, add exFat fs support.

    Now, if file size limit exceedes, there is 3 seconds gap between files, and also, if wifi is turned on, camera just freezes, when exceedes limit.

    FEATURE REQUEST: When in car mode, auto switch to motion detection when power is lost. Once power is available again, turn on to car mode.
    Description/Reason: This way, the camera can be used as security camera when car is parked. It can detect the vandals or car hit in a parking lot.
