    Both issues persist. Keeping the settings button pressed toggles WiFi on and off as supposed. But the same happens with the shutter button. If I press the shutter button to take a pic I have to release it extremely instantly, otherwise it toggles the WiFi. And I am taking about milliseconds. Thank you for your response and the link, I will give it a try

    I have been trying the latest TEST version of firmware V1.16.

    One feature that I have waited for for a long time is the ability to rotate the image and record with the camera mounted upside down. For example fitted to a gimbal where the fixing point only allows upside down operation.

    I was overjoyed to see this promised capability in V1.16TEST.

    However there is a significant issue in how this operates. When inverting the image top to bottom it also inverts it left to right. The inverted image is the correct way up when suspended from a top mounting point - except that in Driving Videos I have now swithched from driving on the left hand side of the road to the right hand side!!! In other words a mirror image of what it should be.

    Compare this to the way the SJ5000X handles Rotate. Here only the Top to Bottom is rotated NOT left to right. When recordings are made with the camera mounted upside down and Rotate "On" the the image is exactly the same as when the camera is mounted right way up with Rotate "Off". NOT a mirror image. If you want also a mirror image, for whatever reason, then this should be a second option. The default however should be as in the SJ5000X and true Image Rotation. Hopefully this is easy to fix before release of this very valuable feature in V1.16 (or V1.17)

    Good to hear. Tested Rotation again today and I am definitely recorded as driving on the Right in a Left-Hand-Drive country - a bit scary!! Look forward to seeing the Release Version of 1.16. Getting close to a stable release. Maybe we can move on to V2.0 pretty soon - where we get new features rather than mainly fixing initial bugs!

    Believe me, I am waiting for that day. As mentioned in another place, i met with Ambarella 2 weeks ago and progress is definitely under way. Some times that face to face makes all of the difference. Thanks everyone for your patience and understanding!

    Is option to enable fisheye correction also going to be added to firmware? Even it it disables other features, it's worth it for some of us. Just put disclaimer on the setting it does that.

    I would like to mention one more issue : To start recording you have to press the shutter button once. To stop recording you have to press it once if the screen is still on and twice if the screen has been to stand by (30 seconds after the last button press), one to wake up the screen and one to stop recording. This is quite confusing especially if someone is recording short videos. It happened many times that I thought I had stopped recording while I hadn't.

    I also found out that the only way to make sure I stopped recording is to check if the red circular icon on the lower left corner of the screen is still flashing. The blue leds are useless under the strong sun, so I was wondering if the red icon could get larger...

    These LCD screen protectors fit perfect on the SJ7 Star. Touchscreen works great also with them on.
