Let's help Sony in making RX100m3 even beter with better firmware.

Let me first say that the RX100m3 is an awesome camera.
We all used the beast for a few weeks now and I think everybody agrees that
the camera can use some tweaks here and there.

Let me start.

1. Let us turn off the GUI while using the Control Ring like in RX100m2.
2. Let us turn off the NTSC/PAL warning when starting up.

I have some points about video implementation.
Let me first say that AVHCD is superb. Please don't change that.

I do not feel the same about XAVC S. Is is good, but when compared to AVCHD is not on par. Check it yourself. Make two movies with the same settings (ISO, Aperture, Shutter) and check it out. You can see it even better when you degrade them both by encoding to a low(er) bit rate.
Summary. I think implementation of XAVC S can be a lot better. I really hope that Sony thinks the same and offer a better encoder so we will be impressed. I know I already am with AVCHD.

Please let Sony know your wishes and please don't start a debate. It is my honest opinion.
