joel avery: Timed exposures up to 30 minutes - that's excellent.

I know there were decent reasons for the limitation in the mechanical days but have been longing for the builtin feature for the modern devices. I was disappointed that Sony didn't add it, not even when going to their mirrorless marvels that are more digital than ever.

Has camera shutter speed improved via firmware before or is this a first?

joel avery: Vindicated. Firmware fix is indeed possible.
Good job Sony.

When DPreview posted the original article I posted a comment asking if it was just a matter of a firmware fix and some said there were larger issues - beyond an update.
I'm glad they were wrong. :-)

p.s. I like everything I post - I'm a genius! ;-)

I do like it....but I didn't like it. I just tested by "clicking" and it will let me.
Do you like yours? :-)

Simultaneously intriguing and repulsive.

What are the technical limitations - buffer filling too quickly?
Why wouldn't Sony go ahead and put an uncompressed RAW option in the camera even with a firmware update?

Full size seems to be almost uniformly suffering from over compression.

I'm seeing lots of individual feathers there. Not bad at all.

In reply to:

AutoMatters: The article says that Amazon now offers FREE UNLIMITED PHOTO STORAGE for Prime members. I went to the Amazon website to verify that. Here is the fine print:
"All plans are for your personal, non-commercial use, which means that, for example, you may not use Cloud Drive to store, transfer or distribute content of or on behalf of third parties, to operate your own file storage and sharing application or service, to operate a photography business or other commercial service, or to resell any part of the service. Also, all cloud services are dependent on network conditions, and we may impose limitations on uploads and downloads, sharing, number of enabled devices or IP addresses, or other restrictions."
I write & shoot photos for a freelance column, published in community-type newspapers and magazines, and online. I have little doubt if I tried to upload my several TB worth of photos, that Amazon would exclude me, calling my column a "photography business or other commercial service."

I hadn't seen this disclaimer before. Am curious to see if there is a response to this. I've tried several times to review the terms on several CloudStorage webpages (including this one https://www.amazon.com/clouddrive/pricing?ref_=cd_lm_navpricing ) and got an error message. It seems like, if "professionals" weren't covered they'd need to mention it a little more boldly.
