Hi.
I went through exactly the same headache. Fortunately it wasn't a long lived headache and was easy to cure.
Check the discussion I had in the patch thread.
It is really easy to do and has had no adverse effect for me.

Hi,

I've just flashed this feature.

Thank you so much. It is much better in terms of control.

However, I have a question.

The original firmware, it will automatically change the exposure and light gain. For example if I point the camera to somewhere dark it will boost the light which causes noise.

In this new feature, it doesnt do that anymore.

So the challenge I am facing now is recording video outdoor in bright sunny day. I have to use ISO 100, shutter speed 1/50(24fps), and aperture of F11 and above to correctly expose the video. Is this correct? Because if I use F2.8, I won't be able to do shallow depth of field because the video will be over exposed, all white.

Hope to hear from you soon.

Thanks for the reply.

So, this means that the old "auto exposure" is disabled? Because normally I will point the camera wherever I want until I get the perfect exposure, then I will lock the exposure with the AE-L.
