I would like to ask the experienced pilots about what issues can be fixed in a future update and what is not possible to get fixed.
Also what new camera features can they add.
Regards

That question is WAY too general.
Do you expect a list of 7 trillion things ?
If you got specific features / Bugs in mind i can comment on that.

What I mean is for example can they fix things like RTH on higher altitude or to add a AEB feature and slower shutter speeds

Hi !
If you dissect the APK you can see they already prepare AEB :)
And of course they can make RTH Altitude adjustable.

As for shutter speeds i do not see a reason why they could not add 2/4/8 secs.

Just use your Brain: they can change all things not limited by hardware.
If they CHOOSE to do it is a legal & economic decision process.
That one can be influenced by our inputs and social network postings.

P.S. actually i was beeing imprecise: i was talking about mixed App & FW update.

As a photographer I know that photo bracketing and long exposure need extremely steady shots.
So I think they should short the stability of the drone first before they proceed to add these features

Yes agreed. But the latest FW update improved hovering Steadyness alot already. I am satisfied now. The Anafi is more fragile then the heavier competitors, dont forget that. And of course Software can try to correct for small shifts like the SONY NEX and P20 Pro do very well...
I am developing Software for Camera makers so i know :)

As the options for the Anafi are very limited I would suggest a recalibration of the compass, this looks more like a vibration issue than the "Jello" effect is see from time to time with DJI products.

No, its a failure of horizintal EIS in low light.
Acceptable for me as night flying is forbiffen here anyways but i can certainly be improved on.
No idea if now, would not be high in the prio list for me :)

You mean it's not fixable by new firmware? Thx...

I did not say that.

The EIS is a function of the Ambarella H22 chipset they attached to the SONY IMX 320 Sensor.
Whether Parrot can change the EIS workings or choose better parameters i do not know.
Also Ambarella could improve on that.

Also Parrot could decide to simply switch off horzontal EIS if noticing too much high frequency horizontal Jitter.

So there are loads of possibilities to work on that.

However i guess that its not high on their priority list and i have yet still to see it on my bird flying in Twilight but NOT in darkness.
