DX-2G "my settings": why F-stop value not saved?

    Hello,

    I'm using a DX-2G and I'm curious to know, why the group of settings saved
    with each of the 3 "my settings" doesn't includes the f-stop value (I think it doesn't
    included)? Currently, when I switch between different "my settings" to the one
    that uses a full manual mode, I need to manually set the f-stop value which
    is strange: I would expect this setting to be saved just like the focal distance
    and many other settings.

    Can this be fixed by a firmware update?

    TIA,

    HI-
    As outlined on page 185 and 186 of the DX-2G user manual, the "my settings" can be programmed for a number of items that include:

    Scene Mode
    Macro
    Flash Mode
    Zoom position
    Self-Timer
    DISP. Mode

    Thanks, SEA&SEA,

    Yes, I understand that F-stop value isn't saved.
    I hoped someone could explain me, why.

    Regards,
    A_kaza.

    Simply because the f-stop value could change dramatically dependent upon the subject and environment, so having the ability to save that setting was not programmed into the camera.
