Re: How about initial activation?

No insights on the policy. Yes, just the D no log.

Now you can switch between AFS - which gives you touch focus and locks - to AFC - where AF moves automatically - right on the camera. The ability too use AFS for static scenes completely eliminates focus pumping of course, and ensures what you want is in focus. AFC is improved - it is faster and less pumping and can deal with infinity (like focus on the sky). And there is focus tracking (just double tap the subject), which locks onto moving subjects, and that is improved too.

Basically now you just need a phone to activate and to carry out firmware updates. You could borrow someone's phone to do those things. The camera/gimbal is now self-contained.
