Question about Sony Cyber-shot DSC-WX300 18 Megapixel Digital Camera - Black
I've made the mistake of buying a Japanese model that only has Japanese language in the user menu. Does anyone know how to access the engineering service menu to change the options? I'm guessing it's programmed that way during manufacture, rather than having different production lines for different countries.
The only way you could possibly change this, is when Sony brings out an update for this camera. It is rare for point and shoot camera's to update the firmware, but sometimes it does happen.
The bigger cameras, like DSLR and mirror less system cameras, more often get an update, because even small improvements for the professional photographer, will be made available, to keep the brand popular with the ones who are using the camera. And when the firm brings new lenses, sometimes the upgrade contains corrections for these lenses.
With an update, (when it comes available) you could put in the update, for the rest of the world. And from that point on, the camera would be like any other outside of Japan. That is, when Sony did not put in other hardware in the different versions.
