Re: New Firmware - Very disappointed

I don't know the facts, but I suspect the ram as well as storage space for firmware on an A7rii is different than that of an A7 thus physically limiting what software can be added and it doesn't have anything to do with Sony being willing or not.

Having said that, innovation comes with a cost, and to recover that cost there must be a charge for innovation and that charge often comes with the next model.

Cars do it, computers certainly have done it, and the Iphone and Android phones have made a living with their 2 year innovation plan that is dispensed by phone companies all over the world.

Having 20 frames per second would have been nice too and logically having the ability to have rolling shutter in the A7rii already you'd might be inclined to say it was purposely crippled, but then again, the buffer and the speed of refresh on the screen of an A9 is much different so the physical limits of the A7rii do exclude the software that can be used.

The world hasn't changed.  You still can't get everything today offers for the prices of what yesterday had available.
