Would you consider paying for firmware updates that add new functionality?
Jun 25, 2013

It's clear that the cameras we purchase are capable of more than manufacturers sometimes let on. Manufacturers could unlock the full potential of these devices via firmware updates but almost never do, as it might deter sales of higher-end models and future hardware. But are these companies stuck in an outdated hardware mentality? Couldn't they make purchasable firmware upgrades part of their product cycles? It might help them bolster thinning margins while making owners happy, and might prevent a lot of e-waste too.
