VOTE: the ultimate Kaizen firmware poll!
“Kaizen, continuous improvement philosophy. Japanese for “improvement” or “change for the best”, refers to philosophy or practices that focus upon continuous improvement of processes in manufacturing, engineering, and business management.” src-wikipedia

Do you remember Marco Ricci’s (website) firmware wish list the article “because we love Kaizen” here? Well, there where 163 comments with further suggestions for firmware improvements. I promised myself to look into it and sum them up in March, when I have a week of holidays and finally a bit more time to launch a new, updated firmware poll.
But I don’t have to, because, sometimes, it happens that FR-readers decides to surprise me and to help me.
So it happens that FR-reader DIS took a look at all firmware suggestions and summed them up into one big super-firmware-poll (divided in 3 blocks).
Everything is in there, even those firmware suggestions FR-reader DIS strongly disagrees with. So he said that, “the block “Other updates” has some strange or impossible to be realized things. It should be distinguished a lot from the main list. Otherwise it won’t be taken seriously by Fuji.”
Now all you have to do, is to vote the top 3 firmware updates you’d like to see in each poll (and add in the comments the one you miss).
Thanks a lot for your time DIS!
And also thanks a lot to Fuji for keeping this Kaizen spirit and improving even discounted Fuji cameras (even though it means sacrificing sales earnings for customer loyalty as a Fuji manager told us here). This is how you treat your customers base.
And here are the polls: 3 blocks, each one with a maximum of 3 selections.
1. RAW/JPEG switch in Fn works only for the first shot. After the shot it’s back again.
2. Hot shoe instability: “So many times it is not working: getting frozen, not seeing the flash unit,… Both the X100 & X-Pro1 have very similar behavior. With third party stuff – transceivers – it gets even more wrong, sometimes working, sometimes not. I even had to perform a complete reset of the camera a few times, because the flash-shoe refused any operation. And Fuji, while you’re busy with this, make also the IR pilot light of the EF-42 work with the X-series to assist the AF in low light.”
3. Transfer of GPS coordinate from phones to X-E2 doesn’t work.
4. When your frame count reach the limit the only way to continue of making photo is to format card! Even if card is not full
