NEX Firmware to be Opensourced!
2

...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?
