two suggestions for LX7 firmware upgrade
If anyone at panasonic is reading these forums, I have some suggestions for a firmware upgrade on the LX7:
1. in manual mode, I can no longer select auto ISO as an option. On the LX5, I could use a 400 ISO max in auto mode and not have to worry about ISO settings. This should be an easy fix.
2. I can't help but notice that Olympus has an external microphone that uses the hotshoe and related port to attach to the EPL3. Maybe you could do this for the LX7 with a firmware upgrade. I'll even buy an accessory microphone for your trouble.
Regardless, the camera is a joy to use. Its fast and I love the creative touchups I can do in-camera. Keep up the good work.
