Good comments in reply, thanks. Regarding tethered, it's no biggie (hence bottom of list) but I believe it should be done in a single app. Old fashioned that way, I am. I'll try it again when I have a few of those time units free.
Regarding DNG. Of course they won't ... unless we all demand it.
Full conversion, non-lossy DNG files are 10 - 40% smaller than the ARW's too meaning more storage and faster transfers (image basis).
I've sent my list to David as well (I've known him (electronically) for quite a while). No reply yet. I think he's tired of me as I've been bombarding him with a900 questions over the past month ... he was traveling as well, recently.
I was delighted with a900 last night as I continued the studio tests to discover that (unlike the Maxxum 7D) I can shoot raw only yet still chimp and zoom. This boosts the storage by a good 25% or so. Now if they'd only adopt DNG....
Pls advise on shutter counter as I cannot find it on camera, not in image EXIF data.
Is there a configuration splash screen? How does one display that? (vague memory of such on Maxxum 7D [not the counter though]).
