The "INFO" key or "Info" Menu Selection
« on: January 07, 2009, 05:08:14 AM »
Professionally, I have been with IT (Information Technology) for a real good number of years and understand that documentation can be compressed quite nicely in little files within media.  One of the aspects of digital cameras that I believe are NOT being used to its fullest is this ability to recall these files and display them on the camera’s or an additional LCD screen.
Consider this:

How about a complete tutorial (at selected levels: beginning/advanced) built into every single camera (& the entire user’s manual & more) and displayable through the camera’s rear LCD or out to additional video through the USB or Video Out jack?  Cool, huh?

Imagine, other "downloadable" material (from the manufacturer) that can augment the additional lenses or the flash units you use, to help you get the most out of their operation?  (Third party support or OEM).  Personally, I would love to have this just to be able to quickly reference answers to questions and other routine questions we field.

Any discussion or additional thoughts would be appreciated.  I feel this is a real cool and doable idea, for all future upgrades or cameras, no matter what manufacturer … or language.

(It appears that Nikon may have something similar in the D300 camera, that I have been recently informed of ... so I guess it is nothing new ... but, SONY does NOT have it ... and I would like to see it put into every intro-DSLR they make as, at least, a MENU option.)
