    After reading numerous threads about questions/concerns/complaints about owners' Weapon cameras, I thought I'd start a thread where everyone could post *constructive* suggestions/requests for future firmware updates where possible.

    I just received my W-Mg Wednesday, so have yet to put it through its paces. My only input at this time would be to bump up the scratch mics' audio.

    Audio
    1.)
    Increase internal mic sensitivity

    Display/Monitor

    1.) Reassignable monitor ports - use either top or operator side pogo simultaneously as HDMI
    2.)
    Additional zoom options (2x, 4x, etc.)
    3.)
    Option for 1:1 magnified feed via HDMI/SDI video port during recording

    Recording
    1.)
    Option for LUTs burned into ProRes
    2.)
    ProRes clips in separate folder from R3Ds

    Make monitor ports reassignable so that one can use either the top pogo or operator side pogo pins simultaneously as HdMi

    Allow monitors to have more than just a 1:1 zoom. So allow 2x, and 4x zoom.

    R3D and ProRes framing/crop match when look around monitoring is enabled. ProRes currently records beyond framing guides.

    Option to get 1:1 magnified feed via *some* video port during recording. I need more help than the full-frame focus tools provide!

    Yes to option on LUTs being baked into ProRes.

    Need to know more information in regards to having ProRes in a separate folder. In some ways, this might not make sense. In other ways, yes, sure it does.

    With v6.2.55 released today, I wanted to check up and see if those that felt the internal mic sensitivty was too low (item #1 in the top list) was improved at all?
