As user I noticed some things I wanted to have on my camera, I hope anyone that has ideas can add them here. What features are you waiting for? What software components are still missing that you cannot live without?
If a project has been completed just add the developer that did it, or is busy on it.
- DHCP (timeouted) and DNS-SD
- GigaBit ethernet
- Zeroconf (Rendezvous) for LAN device announcing
- [OpenSound Control] [OpenSound Control on wikipedia], [introduction to OSC on linuxjournal]
- CF Ethernet card support [CF 10/100 Ethernet cards list]
- CF WiFi card support [WCF54G]
- CF USB card support [SolarExpress] [CFU2]
- External USB Display support Mimo UM-750 7-inch.
- Enable UDMA in the Axis kernel. Needed to support most fast CF cards, will also boost speed on SATA.
- Higher image quality debayer algorithmn FPGA implementation -> VNG
What will the next elphel camera most likely entitled Elphel 373 be like?
- Vignetting hardware correction
- Lens distortion hardware correction
- Fixed pattern noise (FPN) correction
- Flash mode for rolling shutter

- initial focus/pan/tilt sensor adjustment
- Square shaped SFE and equidistant holes for easy change of orientation
- group VLDS pairs in flexible cable from sensor to board
