Is anyone, who was looking for any upgrade or update internal software for DX-6490. I have problem with energy saving (I dont need that). Camera going to standing status. And another problem. Is possible incrasing DX-6490 for long time shooting (> than 16 s) ???? I'm interesting astro photo and this camera "serving" me that's problems...

The firmware issue has been an ongoing battle for some, but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting.

As for the 16 second limit, the only real way to get what you want is a DSLR with the bulb option, some cameras got up to 64 seconds (DX7440) but for true control, bulb mode is the way to go.

Hope this helps.
