I wonder how upset people would be if say Microsoft would do the same tactic. What if in order to get a new version if IE you had to just buy it?


To get any new features added to windows you just had to buy the next version of windows. ...

THAT is how Microsoft makes money, all of Microsoft's product is "just" software... so that in-itself is completely counter to your point.

My 6 year old computer can technically do everything today's computer does, why do I have to buy a new one to get Windows 8....

But on a more serious note, this does leave open the door for software as a service on cameras, I think being able to buy firmware features for your serial model is an interesting proposition, certainly a possibility for cameras that start running full blown operating systems like android
