    Here's my idea ....
    Eliminate all programming which is responsible for still image output. Only write firmware for movie footage. For the time being don't worry about the Epic being a movie camera and a digital still camera. Only include the code necessary for movie footage ... and see if the bug remains. We can live without digital stills ... there are other solutions for that at this time. No one would buy an Epic if it didn't have movie capabilities, that's what we all want.
    Maybe have two separate paths in the firmware and a user choice selector ... one firmware path for stills ... and another firmware path for motion ... make it totally separate logically. Produce the Epic with movie capabilities, with digital still capability to follow .... (the fact that I know nothing about the problem won't stop me from offering solutions)

    Jim,

    Glad you're back and feeling better.

    Understanding and patience is easy to give when I know the possible outcome of the new camera. Can't wait to see what's to come!

    Thanks for everything.

    Glad to have you back, even if to dispense news that in the grand scheme is worse for you than us. It is just a bug, way more glad to hear you are doing better health-wise.

    REMEMBER... EPIC may be EPIC, but its just a camera Jim. Health is more important that kicking anyone's ass... and M-X sensor is allowing us to raise the bar and really is an incredible innovation. I am landing NEW customers everyday with the M-X.

    TAKE YOUR TIME TO GET EPIC and SCARLET RIGHT. LETS FACE IT The economy is still reeling, and none of us are going anywhere. The Gulf Oil Spill takes the cake for the worst news ever... the fact you are still alive after discovering the BUG, is the best news :)
    Kind regards,

    I'm glad to hear that you are back in action and on top of the situation- thanks for the heads up. Just don't let this firmware issue cause you health problems - as no piece of tech / kit is worth a shortened life.

    If anyone can get it sorted out, it is your team- I'm looking forward to hearing about the conquering of this problem, and the Epic program moving forward. :)
    Cheers,

    This isn't just a thousand to one shot. This is a professional bloodsport. And it can happen to you. And then it can happen to you again.

    This is just a camera. There is life to be lived as well. Glad your health is ok.


    Good luck bug hunting!
