Some good stuff in the new Nikon firmware.

Just reading through the updated items makes me wish that Canon would add some of those features to my old 20D. But Canon never offers increased utility or features in firmware updates for old cameras.

Darn, I really wish they would

Here are some of the things in the Nikon update that I'd like to see added to my 20D - along with the base features that are required to support them, of course!

A Save/load settings item has been added to the setup menu.

Max. sensitivity and Min. shutter speed options have been added to the ISO auto menu.

A Recent settings item has been added to the setup menu.

Latitude and longitude GPS data now displays up to 3 digits* for each segment.
3-digit display may not be possible with some GPS devices.

A compass bearing is displayed in the GPS data, if used with a GPS device is equipped with digital compass.

Autofocus subject acquisition and tracking performance has been improved.

What do you think, any chance?
