7i to 7Hi firmware upgrade?
Don't know if it's possible, just wondering if Minolta might sell firmware upgrade for the 7i to make it perform like the 7Hi?

7i lacks the required memory...
for some of the improvements.

It's kind of hard to drill and install a PC sync terminal in @ home as well...

Now guys, don't rub it in!
I like the black & silver 7i, tired of all black stereo gear (I've got a room full). Like you said, NHL, you've got to stop guessing and buy and at the time the 7i had just appeared.

1:2.5 jpg?
I wouldn't mind having the option of using a less compressed jpg than the 1:4 fine. That should be a possible upgrade.

They could also add the 3:2 aspect ratio to the compressed jpg than the 1:4 fine to save memory space (but Minolta wouldn't want to copy Nikon for this feature wouldn't they? ... BSS is nice to have too) since the almost square frame get cropped anyway in most printout.

I tend to agree that all high-end equipments are now silver (stereo, DVD, TV, satellites receivers, cellphones,...and even PCs). Somehow for cameras they need to be black... for covering wars or shooting birdies behing bushes...Incognito I guess :P:P:P
