Write out your suggestions for nex cameras here.
Please try to describe desired feature as clear as possible.
Please add model number to yor wish
Audio level control
On screen sound level bar
WB adjustment while recording
HDMI full screen display while recording
Creative style and Picture effect can be adjusted at same time
First and foremost:
Better bitrates and color depth
Safe way back to original Firmware!
EU and US Video option, unrestricted for regions (US 1080/60/24 and EU 1080/50/25)
unlock 60fps video recording for the region-discriminated euro models artificially limited to 50!
Auto-ISO in manual mode!
I wish NEX to have support for m43 & NX & EF lens protocols, so adaptors would need only to be simple rings with minimum electronic.
Webcam mode ;-)
@someone100 let's point which features you can realistically implement, to avoid useless posts here
This may apply to NEX but I am an a77 owner...
Auto ISO in M mode.
So, I set the shutter and aperture and the camera determines and sets ISO (within the auto ISO range) to determine the correct exposure. Also allow exposure compensation to operate as in other modes, adjusting the camera's chosen ISO value.
I this hack project takes off, it would be great. Many of the "magic lantern" ideas for canon would be great too.
increased bitrate on every nex and STL camera
4:4:4 output on HDMI and SDI (NEX 700)
4k on FS700 now!!!
cleam HDMI output on every cameras
just a few small things:
- wider bracketing range on lower models,
- jpeg+raw mode when using picture effects, hdr, panorama (save raw along with processed jpeg),
- more colors for the focus peaking indication (not just white, yellow and red),
- RGB histogram
Shutterless mode for silent shots
Ability to use regeneration time > 1/50 sec for "night vision" mode (currently cannot focus/frame in darkness)
Timelapse: What would be enough is just that camera could start taking another picture as soon as the last one is finished and is being written to card. Another way would be putting camera into bulb and setting up how many, how long, with what interval photos camera should make. hope you understand.
Battery compatibility: I have heard, some chinese batteries works after firmware patch, some dont, they get message 'incompatible battery'. Maybe this restriction could be lifted?
Turning off the screen: turning off while still taking pictures using IR could increase battery life for timelapse using IR commander.
UI improvements: the menus are endless, maybe they could be at least aranged into 2 levels, or maybe its possible to completely overhaul UI (e.g. fuji x-pro1 type).
HDMI Live view: you plug in camera to TV using HDMI cable and see live view in your TV. I think this feature in NEX-5, but is now gone with NEX-5n, if its gone, any way of bringing it back?
Ability to use focus ring for something else in AF mode (e.g. aperture control)
For NEX7 Tri-Navi.
In photo review mode, when Zoomed, the back scroll wheel controls the Zoom, the two Top Wheels could control
Wheel 1 - changing photos keeping the same pixel coordinate and Zoom level
Wheel 2 - move presets of selected Zooms levels
my ridiculously lofty wishlist for the nex-5n (especially since it caves in to overheating after only a couple minutes of NORMAL use)
higher framerates. (reasonably slotted to each resolution, i.e. 1080 - up to 80 fps, 720 - up to 120fps, etc...)
higher bitrates and options for either 422 or 444 and raw video (i know im dreaming)
hdr in video mode
Coming from a landscape shooting perspective for Nex7, although applies mostly to 5N as well:
That ought to do it for starters :) Good luck with the project guys. I'm happy to provide some financial support if possible.
-higher bit rates
-high color bit depth
-4:4:4 output via SDI
-Super slow motion output via SDI
Able to set minimum shutter speed at aperture priority mode.
Able to set the maximum value of iso in auto iso for all modes.
Using the autoring of the lens for changing the aperture or shutterspeed when using autofocus.
Turning off screen during long exposures (even if it's black, the lamp is still on) and USB connection
Simplification of NEX directory structures (finding movies on flash is a bit tedious)
@beetwo77 -- You cannot have real ISO50 in NEX, it exists in A77 because it is a SLT (sensor capacity is the same, just it takes more light BEFORE mirror to saturate sensor)
FULL HD VIDEO FOR NEX 3. The camera has same specs as nex 5 and sony disabled Full HD!!!!! Please, enable it! ISO 100 would also be awesome!
increased bitrate ..nex 5n
Still shots during movie mode.
ON/OFF switch to turn video recording on and off (with turn on/off function removed to a combo of shutter+play). To me video button is very inconvenient, mainly because it is sometimes ignored when camera is busy...)
If you could try to include: Improved AF-Speed.
Customise auto ISO Settings (for instance from 100-800)
ISO 50 would be perfect.
Improved Image Noise when using ISO 800 and above.
Double-Lock for the Video Button to prevent mispress.
Improved auto HDR, meaning rather have extreme HDR settings than a 5photo bracketing.
And one of the coolest features would be integrated Time-laps.
Thanks for yor work guys, if Sony can't do it for us customers, maybe you can!
Anything for the F3, or at least the below:
ISO 100 (don't think 50 works)
60 FPS video instead of the 50 FPS for EU models
Safe way to go back to official firmware if necessary
lock auto ISO between certain values (eg 100 to 1600)
Much appreciated :)
X. - I would give you anything for audio in :D :D :D audio implements dont really make too much sense with the stupid sony microphone that broke itself off the camera after about 5 minutes of using it.
Thank you so much for your hard work. If there is going to be an option to pay a bit of cash for this, I will use it.
Manual controls in video mode (set ISO and Shutter Speed)
24 fps video
60 fps video (720p and 1080 if possible)
