Dear Canon,

Constructive Comments and Feature Suggestions

for the next firmware update

  • ADD: FULL MANUAL CONTROL in Movie Mode (that includes Aperture, Shutter speed and ISO settings)
  • ADD: More Frame Rates options in Movie Mode (24p, 25p)
  • Direct access to Movie Mode (instead of browsing menus with many clicks) //apparently already solved
  • IMPROVE: more Flexible and Faster CONTRAST AF in Movie mode if possible. Much useful if achieved!!
  • IMPROVE: Automatic white balance (AWB), specially in artificial light
  • IMPROVE: Auto LCD Brightness to Match recorded image
  • ADD: More Frames in BRACKETING MODE (up to 9, so important for HDR Photography, more and more used these days)
  • ADD: GAIN CONTROL (Mic Level) for external Audio input. Allow AUTO and MANUAL setting Level
  • ADD: CHROMATIC ABERRATION CORRECTION for JPG shoots (AUTO/MANUAL/OFF). Nikon has it (automatically corrects it and improves the image quality VERY much, since almost every lens has Chroma aberration)
  • ADD: Selectable lower and upper limit for Auto ISO
  • ADD: Mass storage device USB mode option
  • ADD: Built in microphone for audio notes (as in 1D series)
  • ADD: New Feature: allowing to REMAP hot / defective pixels by the user (Official function, not a workaround) This will save lot of money to Canon Tech Service.

Thx to “Pablov” from cinema5d

    While manual control is a MUST, can we ad “More Professional Format” to the list?

    Shooting h.264 is pretty lame. I would like to be able to shoot much larger professional formats. Not sure if it would be possible, but its on my wish list!

    Canon has an HD video codec, doesn’t it?
