Re: C100 Firmware Update: Feature Requests

The ISO+ and ISO- custom buttons for changing ISO when you shoot without a hand-grip.
The exposure and CP save in the clip metadata (C100 can save these parameters only for stills).

Re: C100 Firmware Update: Feature Requests

+1 for Duration
+1 for Interval recording
+1 for Move Magnification area (though this may be a v2 thing)

+ FIX MALIGNANT 25PSF MODE!!!
+ Spot white-set (choose centre area for white set, not whole screen)
+ AUDIO PLAYBACK ON SHOT REVIEW!!!!
+ Separate levels for single audio input
+ Powered 3.5mm jack (so we can use real microphones with it - 2v excitation/tickle voltage - junior 'phantom power' required
+ A/B/A record (don't stop recording when you open the SD hatch)
+ Allow more flexibility with custom button assignment (I'd like to assign the WB button to the front one currently assigned to one-button AF, but many functions aren't assignable)
+ Negative gain in Fractional Gain (not just ISO) mode
+ 4:3 'portrait iPad' and '9:16' 'portrait widescreen' guides instead of 1.75:1 guide
+ Slower settings for shockless WB settings

Re: C100 Firmware Update: Feature Requests

Yes, please give us a proper 25p. The 550d had it so why can't a 4k plus camera?

I know its not firmware related but on the hardware end, I wish Canon would offer a rubber eyecup to attach to the EVF or even an option to upgrade the EVF for a few quid... I'm not holding out for the second one!

Re: C100 Firmware Update: Feature Requests

Actually, I'd be fine with just 720p60 mode. With 1080p60, you're going to be hard pressed to find an external recorder to record in that mode, so if it came down to ONLY being either/or, I'd prefer 720 for that reason.

Now, if they would give us BOTH options, that would be awesome.

This breaks the AVCHD spec, and so won't ever happen. Besides, it's really a non-issue.

According to Planet 5D blog there's been a firmware release:

I'm out so I can't check this out.

Re: C100 Firmware Update: Feature Requests

Ditto to all the other requests PLUS:

Allow the magnify to work on the HDMI out as well. A must when using an EVF. I know I can do it with my EVF but it requires me to take my hand off the camera to do it.

Re: C100 Firmware Update: Feature Requests

1. Please, please add a auto ISO option!

2. the dial for the aperture a custom button so you can use it to change your ISO if you wish. I mostly shoot wide open all the time so I never really use the dial. It is a real shame!

3. I also 2nd that clip duration should be an option.

Re: C100 Firmware Update: Feature Requests

Fix the magnified image so that it doesn't suck so much. ( alias, pixilation issues) the magnification on the mk2 and mk3 is great! why is the c100 magnification so bad.
