    FEATURE REQUEST: Fixed shutter speed
    Description/Reason: I've seen that there are some other cameras that allow fixing the shutter speed to a certain value. For people who want to double the shutter speed according to the fps, this feature is really interesting.

    FEATURE REQUEST: Maximum ISO
    Description/Reason: Instead of fixing the ISO, leave it to increase up to a certain value.

    My ideal configuration for this would be something like this:
    1080p60fps - shutter speed 1/120 - ISO Auto (Max:400) - EV 0.0 (if ISO max is reached, then the image will be underexposed)

    If the picture is too dark, then it is my fault for shooting at night :)

    Request/Proposal: To have option while camera turned on, screen off in standby to have option with one press of shutter button to start recording or making a snap.
    This will be especially useful using remote control to avoid 2 press on the RC record button.

    Reason: To avoid miss presses on the RC button without feedback camera is recording or not. With one press of button chances not to start recordings are smaller.

    FEATURE REQUEST: FOV or Zoom on Stills on the camera
    Description/Reason: Having the option for a closer shot for images would help with getting better photos WITHOUT having to edit the photo in post. Even with editing, it'd be nice to be able to use the camera itself to get shots and have a better view of what I want to take a picture of. Also, it would help not to see the attachments I add to my camera at times.

    FEATURE REQUEST: Webcam mode
    Description/Reason: ??If i'm missing something then it's on me but why is this not on here as its pretty much standard??

    FEATURE REQUEST:
    Underwater mode and easier access to modes
    Description/Reason: Because the settings with adjusting takes plenty of time and it would be easier to select underwater mode versus going through several settings (like the SJ6). Not to mention, but a lot of other modes for quick (Like on the SJ6). It would be rather convenient to swipe to select modes for faster set up based on our environment and we don't have to fiddle with constant adjustments. Such as underwater mode, slow motion quick access, quick access to car mode, a motion detection mode (see next request)

    FEATURE REQUEST: Fix the mode compatibilities
    Description/Reason: Its confusing to try and figure out which formats can use which settings on the camera (I understand that some of these cannot be helped, but gyro sensor only being on two of the 1080p settings is a little silly) Wider use of formats compatible with more settings would be appreciated

    FEATURE REQUEST: 1 second time lapse photo
    Description/Reason: Because it looks nicer when strung together and video lapse has 1 sec

    I mean that's all I can think of, and if there is a limitation that I am missing then if someone could explain it to me that'd be great. But overall, I love the camera but i'm confused about why some of these features aren't on there from the get-go (webcam mode). More streamlined access to modes would be fantastic (LIKE THE SJ6!!!).

    FEATURE REQUEST: Download and Upload option for camera settings (.xml file or something)
    Description/Reason: Having the option to download/save current camera settings and upload them after a firmware update would save a tonne of time having to customise settings each time.
    Having date/time stamp and logo set to ON as default is ridiculous, unless you're aware of this and unless you want it on. you're shots are ruined.
    Having an xml file (or other compatible format) to edit in notepad before applying to the camera would be ideal.

    FEATURE REQUEST: Full control over shutter speed in photo mode
    Description/Reason: This is an absolute MUST. At present the only way to invoke a faster shutter speed is to rise the ISO manually. Motion blur is a huge issue in photo mode. ISO can be set to AUTO. Please allow full control over shutter speed.


    FEATURE REQUEST:
    EIS on higher than 1080P please, EIS on 4K
    Description/Reason: none needed, just do it :)

    FEATURE REQUEST: Video Resolutions options OVERHAUL
    Description/Reason: This is a mess in my opinion. Just have one setting for each resolution. Then a sub menu for FPS and aspect ratio. DONE.
    FPS is NOT a resolution.
    Aspect ratio is NOT a resolution.

    Video Resolution:
    4K
    2160P
    2.7K
    2.5K
    1440P
    1080P
    960P
    720P

    (New submenu option)
    FPS:
    200fps
    150fps
    100fps
    50fps
    25fps
    (just grey out the ones unavailable, depending on selected video resolution)

    (New submenu option)
    Aspect Ratio:
    16:9
    4:3
    SV

    FEATURE REQUEST: FOV ON 1080 MOVIES
    Would love the ability to change the FOV on all 1080 Movies. I don't always want a wide angle shot.

    FEATURE REQUEST: IMAGE STABILITY ON HIGH RES MOVIES
    Would also like to have the option to turn on image stability on all moves over 1080

    This is impossible because the FOV it's simple a crop image from larger frame.

    Please do not understand what is meant by '' the FOV is not possible on 1080 because it is a crop of a larger frame '' . Yet from a table dedicated to the SJ7 Star it appears that the FOV is applicable to a wide range of resolutions, small and large. Probably it is I who do not understand the problem. I attach the features report. Hi danny36
