Default Was just wondering... shutter speed on S9100 vs S8100

Do the readers here think that the shutter speed of a camera is something that could be changed in the field e.g. a firmware update to make to stay open LONGER (not shorter), so that we could get perhaps 4-10 seconds exposure on a point & shoot such as the Nikon s9100. I have not an earthy clue why a company would take the basics of a camera and reduce something such as the shutter speed unless it was to prevent reviews from taking poor photos by force, putting them up for review and reducing sales?

If it is possible, I don't suppose there is a chance in hell of them increasing it via many users request (if there are even many users that want such) or perhaps a firmware editor to change the 1 in that firmware file to a 9? or if hexadecimal to a F?

This is the main reason that I think the S9100 will not be my choice for a long zoom compact. Other choice Panasonic ZS10. Any thoughts??
