    FEATURE REQUEST: User Definable File Prefix
    Description/Reason: Allow the user to enter a file prefix which is added to the start of the file names. This lets users with multiples SJ7 Stars distinguish files from different cameras and removes the possibility of having multiple files of the same name from different cameras over write each other

    FOV in photo mode we asked for but Ambarella feels photos can be edited easily already. Distortion correction is still not supported by ambarella...
    the sound from wind would require two internal microphones I believe...... I think the SJ8 will have dual mics which should help with noise cancellation.

    You say that the processor is unable to perform lens correction - however right from the start the camera was advertised as having lens distortion correction as well as other features which it still doesn't have.

    The SJ8 has similar features advertised - are we to assume that we would have to pay twice as much again and buy another camera for these features which were promised on the SJ7 - if the SJ8 were ever to actually get them, which based on the SJ& is unlikely.

    You said that the processor does not support RAW, a script was made on the site of the 4pda, and the camera is now able to do the raw, your developers have already been told about it, maybe you will now finish this in the official firmware

    and please modify the sound, loud sounds cut the microphone, makes the sound deaf.

    FEATURE REQUEST: Raw Photos
    Description/Reason: The SJ7 was originally advertised as having Raw Photos and this was one of the reasons for purchasing it. Raw photos allow greater ability to tweak the results of the final image and will improve the output. Raw should also be available for timelapse and long exposure photos

    FEATURE REQUEST: Photos & videos saved to DCIM folder

    Description/Reason: Can we have the option to save all files in a DCIM folder rather than the current folder structure. This will enable importing files into the iOS photos apps when using a lightning to sdcard reader. Due to the current file structure when plugging the sdcard into the reader they can’t be imported

    I've raised this item before but... after testing V1.19 beta, there is one major mod missing. Specifically, there's no attempt to let the internal battery take over if external power is lost for any length of time. This includes a brief dropout due to a slightly loose connector. As it is, the camera powers down altogether. Which means video is lost.

    Please work on bridging over loss of external power with the internal battery.

    FEATURE REQUEST: Create a WiFi settings menu where we can choose WiFi channel number (@ FW1.20 is set to default channel 1) AND allow channel width 40MHz

    Description/Reason: a fixed wifi channel doesn't allow to avoid interferences on this channel if it's in use by another equipment such wireless routers. A 40 Mhz channel width will allow a better data transfer rate and faster file downloading from camera to the phone.

    I’ve given up on transferring over WiFi, it’s just too slow at present.

    I found on google a ambarella's chipset basic datasheet, but it does not give us more details about wifi connection. However i know if SJ7 star's wifi interface supports a 802.11/n with 40Mhz channel width, it could reach about 60Mb/s of average data transfer rate and maybe, 80 or 90Mb/s of peak. I made some tests and actually it reaches 22Mb/s of peak and about 12Mb/s of average data transfer rate.

    Keep in mind that different countries have different numbers of channels, power restrictions, etc. Some routers can be tweaked to fit the local rules, but adding that option to the SJ7 is one more layer of complexity. Ya win some, ya lose some...
