if the piezo is there..... i will insist very much to implement the 16shot mode, after my experience in my quilt shooting. its so great to shoot 16 shot...
Same here. When you can do 4-shot in most cases you can do the 16-shot as well. I seriously doubt whether you can make a (good) shot outside with multishot, tethered to a laptop or not.
I sometimes make exposure bracketed shots to create HDR files, even on a very sturdy tripod on a day it appears the wind has gone I have great difficulties generating exactly the same files (to be able to generate proper HDR files).
I believe the idea of not putting a screen in a multi-shot back (keeping it lean and also cutting into manufacturing costs) is sound and wise.
I would love to hear from people that did make succesful multi-shot files outdoors!
