Focus magnification question

On the FS 100, you press the magnification button, and then you use the thumb joystick to move to the part of the frame you need to see. It looks like the fs7 doesn't allow you to ok you to move around the frame. Real pita, especially when you're using a tele prompter. If Inwanted to check focus on the eyes , I had to tilt the head, thereby changing the frame, etc.
I hope this can be fixed in future firmware, because it's an extremely lame system.
Other than a couple of issues like that, I love the image.

Re: Focus magnification question

Anyone know about a firmware update to take care of this problem?
