I was (finally!) able to test my SJ8 with 1.2.8. If it improves something, I don't know what. Image quality remains as poor as it was when using 1.2.4. In anything less than full sunlight, paved roads show significant pixelation. Even in full sunlight, grass along the road turns into a mottled green surface with no significant detail. Objects like buildings, telephone poles and wires, trees, all show a white edge and a line of distortion following the edge. In short, image quality remains as unusable as before. The SJ7 V1.15 remains the high water mark for the SJ7/SJ8 series of cameras.
