Dont know if any of these are possible just through a firmware update but...

Improved low light performance,

Image Stabilation thats does not crop (Like the HD1000)

I think that is pretty much it to be honest! Just shows that im happy with my HD700!

I agree with the above, and less noise in low light situations. It's unlikely they will do any of these even if it was possible, look how many firmware upgrades are avaliable for it's xacti range 1 for the c6 and 1 for the hd1000. Pretty poor compared to Aiptek, but you could argue the aipteks need them more.

Improve video quality (to add a mode with higer bit rate, 18Mb/s)
- To improve color fidelity in video mode (is too magenta)
- To improve dinamic range (more bits per sample in the codec cuantization)
- To avoid croping when estabilizator in ON (I do not understand very well why they need to do that if you have a lot o pixels spare in the CCD comparing with the photo mode)

Anybody knows how is the technicall details about the CCD area in video and photo mode? For 1280x720 you need only 2 Mpixels and this camera have 7Mpixel, What is the strategy to obtain the video frame? To average 3 o4 pixels per video sample?

I second those comments. Not too sure if it'd be able to cope with realtime processing of denser footage for stabilization with no cropping. Surely though some work could be done with the codec's bitrate (as a super high quality setting or so) to possibly offer better end-result quality.

I would also like to see an option for 25FPS recording if possible. Not only because its close to Cine FPS and the spec for PAL (which doesn't really matter on modern flat panels anyways), but because as a result the longest exposure setting available would be 1/24 instead of 1/30 and thus allowing slightly better low-light shooting and more pronounced motion-blur when/if needed.

In any cases, Sanyo is not going to change nothing that implies a change in the User Manual (for example, a new video mode). I think that manufactures never changes functionality, they can have troubles with consumers, claims, etc. It is stupid, but it is true.
