I never understood why a camera with built-in GPS unit is prohibited from setting location and time during tethering. The (RAW) files stored on the cameras memory card will not be tagged. Only if a smartphone/tablet/computer has a GPS active, the transferred files are tagged.
In my opinion it would be far better to tag the files in the camera, befor any transfer.
Sometimes I just want to trigger my cameras through tethering, without the need for the images being uploaded to my computer or smartphone/tablet. The upload process just takes a lot of time, where the camera is blocked. If there would be an option to disable the file upload, this would be nice!
My suggestion would be, to enhance the bracketing possibilities in all cameras. The stock bracketing is limited to 3 or 5 exposures with pre-set steps. I would appreciate an option to set the maximum number of exposures (i.e. 3, 5, 7, 9, ...) as well as step sizes (1/3, 1/3 + 1/2, 1/2 + 1, 1, ...), which will be used in the standard bracketing-drive-mode menu.
For my personal taste, up to 9 exposures with 1EV step size would be sufficient.
By the way: if the bracketing sequence reaches an exposure limit (i.e. 1/4000s where bracketing would go to 1/8000), there should be a warning displayed in the camera!
I know that there is an app available, but the app is far from "professional" as it is advertised. If it would be professional, the app would support any number of exposures with any step size (at least in the range of 1/3 to 2 EV)
Hi Sony! So I thought I would take this time to just say Thank You. I am currently in a safe house because I am a victim of Human Trafficking and Identity Theft and there was some Sony head phones that were donated to the woman here. LOL It just so happened to be the exact headphones that I bought 3 times and lost a long the way due to my situation.
So because of the donation of Sony Headphones I now have a good working pair and am able to better deal with my situation with my music. Thank you Sony!
Why is there no Time Lapse app for the HX80, when it is on my HX60? The camera is for the most part the same, yet it has hardly any apps available for it but the time lapse app would be the most use to have on this camera. Is the camera going to be able to have this app at some point?
After my Sony 50" TV was under water for 3 days during Hurricane Harvey. I let it dry in sun for a week and blew out with a leaf blower. Plugged it in and it is working like new. I now sit in my Hurricane damaged house with no inner walls and enjoy one of my only possesions that survived the Hurricane. My make good commercial on duabilty of Sony products
Seeing as we know that many astrophotographers use your cameras, i would love to see the max shutter speeds increased.
I will quite often capture a number of 30 second exposures and stack them together, Im using a tracking mount that would allow for much longer exposures. I have manually (using "bulb") captured exposures up to 5 minutes with excellect results, being able to automate this would be great.
Any chance you could add something like a 1min, 2min, 5min options to the exposure settings in the app? It would allow the fanstastic sony sensor to gather even greater detail of the night sky.
