...with a firmware update? I bought my NEX-5 when it's been released, and though it's nice little camera, I found many problems that could be easily fixed via a firmaware update. I then tried to contact Sony but without any success. Since then we had a few firmware updates wich addressed some problems (custom buttons, full manual video mode with the NEX-5N), we even had new features such as the peaking mode (kudos for that Sony) but the same problems that were present one year ago are still there, even in the new NEX-5N: DMF mode When the camera can't auto-focus, you can't focus manually. For me, the main interest of the DMF mode would be to focus manually when the camera can't, but at the moment it's not possible wich is a big drawback, that's really fustrating. Panorama mode It would be much more easier if each time you enter the panorama mode it asks you the way you want to shoot. Instead of that you have to select the panorama mode, then go back in the menu, select "camera", enter "panorama direction" and finally select the direction desired, boring. Bracket mode The bracket mode is currently limited to ±0.7EV (wich is useless) and 3 shots. I'd like to have the possibility to go at least up to ±2.0EV and 5 shots. What really irritates me is that the HDR mode can go up to ±6.0 EV, so that's clearly a software limitation and not a hardware one! Auto ISO The auto ISO setting will just go up to 1600 ISO (3200 on the NEX-N). I would like the camera to go up to 3200 or 6400 ISO (or even 12800 on the NEX-N) in auto ISO setting if I wish. HDR mode The HDR mode is a pain in the @$$ to use. I shoot RAW, so first I have to go in the image size menu, then quality and select JPEG. Then go back in the menu, then brightness/color, then DRO/Auto HDR and finally select HDR, ouch. First, why the hell the camera doesn't automatically switch to JPEG when you select the HDR mode, it already does it for anti-motion blur and hand-held twilight. Secondly, the feature could be more accessible, it could be in the scene selection. Switching the soft key buttons I mostly shoot with manual lenses and often use the manual focus assist button, and it would be much more convenient if it could be assigned at the top soft key. The menu would be assigned at the bottom soft key. Set the minimum shutter speed When I'm in A mode, I'd like to set the minimum shutter speed (1/30 is not enough for most of the lenses). So here are my griefs I've got with my NEX since a year, wich could be easily fixed with a firmware update, so what's yours?
