G1X is a great camera - here's what I would like to be improved

Canon should try and fix in a firmware update:

1. Auto switch to Macro Mode in all operating modes
2. Improve moire reduction in JPEGs (like in DPP, where it is better controlled)
3. Look at red/green horizontal banding at higher ISO in shadows and try to fix

4. Accurate white balance when using indirect external flash (it must be possible since when you use custom WB, the color is spot on)
5. Fix resampling in DPP to display sharp images at all magnification levels

6. Make the movie rec button respond only to like 1 second push. I have activated movie rec by accident quite often.

7. Provide control over JPEG when shooting RAW & JPEG (processing power may be a limiting factor

8. Try and improve continues shooting mode or provide some control over burst mode settings
9. Add an auto ISO mode that covers all ISO settings

10. Add a setting that preserves highlights at all cost (easier to recover shadow details than blown highlights).

Did I miss anything that can/should be fixed in software?
