NEX Firmware to be Opensourced!
Dec 12, 2013

...I wish!

It's the most flexible, adaptable, and quality system out there. Why are they hampering the possibilities (and sales) with this camera? Lego, Microsoft learned their lesson with their robotic-adaptable firmware/software and it boosted sales of some of their niche products. Sony should do the same with the NEX line: cut the number of models down to two.... and RELEASE THE KRAKEN of open-sourced firmware for those models! Think of the possibilities:

  • Remote tethering- wirelessly, over IP, worldwide of ALL of the camera's controls
  • Plug-In development for camera control through LabView and other tech software
  • Remote Flash integration
  • Improved wireless/IP download

What cool or hugely useful thing would you have your camera do?
