If you blanket EV+1 then when you're looking at (mainly) the ground then it will expose correctly and then increase brightness 1 stop. Not terrible but maybe a little annoying no? Only when you were pointing mainly at the sky would you get a better exposed ground, but for the rest of the time (straight and level) it might be poorer than current.
Just got the camera a few days ago, it's awesome! And v0.18 firmware is a massive
improvement. I like the fact that this camera is so versatile, so I would hate to have it adjusted to be "perfect" for aerial video, if that meant making the perfomance in other situations poorer than it is now with the v0.18.
BUT, I agree that it would be cool to have something done with the exposure. I agree with thwaitm
, that the overall EV+/- toggle seems really useless (the overall exposure is pretty good as it is). I also agree that the bottom/centre/top expo toggle would be awesome
, and in my eyes definitely the best solution. Would that be possible?! Probably.
As for toggles that could be eliminated to make room for this, I could definitely live without sound toggle, loop toggle and auto shut off toggle. And that should be plenty to make room for some exposure, would be my guess.
