I have been waiting to see if and when Sony would have a firmware update for the DSC-F828. As of yesterday, I have not found it on their web site. I am curious - where did you find the update and did you download the file? I would like to get it and try the update to see if they have changed anything. I like the camera so far, it does the job for me. I am not quite sure that a firmware update can improve much with the exisiting hardware.

It would be nice to see a few choices for JPEG compression. The uncompressed TIFF files are about 23MB and the JPEGS are between 2.5 to almost 4MB in fine mode. I would like to see a JPEG file of about 8MB.

I checked out the firmware update. From what I can see it resolves a couple of issues regarding memory sticks since I use compact flash I would assume that this firmware update does not apply to my situation....I think.

A number of post have inquired about "firmware updates". I'm curious as to what other problems or issues people are having that they think may be resolved by a firmware update. I do wish Sony would update or redo their viewing software for these cameras because it really sucks!
