Firmware whishlist ?

Hi,

Is there a way to contact Nikon and tell them about improvements we are expecting ?

The more I read the forums, the more I see things which would be very easy to implement for them :

- total customization of the screen layout (icons, histogram, ...)

- all functions as destination for programmable buttons

- Focus points control with touchscreen

- so many others ...

And one I was so upset not to see on my Z6 : view the current focal length on screen. They are often communicating on the high communication rate of the Z mount, so it should be doable. Even my modest E-M10 provides that.

It's already possible to select an AF point by tapping the rear monitor screen.

My biggest wish is the multi expo in RAW not in jpeg.

Hope Nikon reads this.

I suggest writing a message to support, and asking that your wishlist be routed to the “Z Cameras Product Manager.”

I have a Nikon user account, and every time I email support for feature suggestions, I just get generic auto reply.  Plus the features I ask for (that aren't hard to implement) haven't been done for over a year.  So I gave up.

Focal length on the screen

I'd really like to view focal length, mainly for video.

I have tried the AF point selection on touchscreen. It is working if you are using the screen.

But the function I am looking for is using the touchscreen as a touchpad while keeping the eye on the EVF.

Very efficient comparend to the joystick !

Maybe one day ...
