Updating the UI: Battery
« on: July 18, 2018, 08:56:40 PM »
On the redesigned main screen, if you tap the battery icon, you'll get to a screen for battery and power. As with most of my mockups, this comes with a caveat: this is what we want. This is not necessarily what we'll get. ;)

What's Voltage vs Charge? What is each trying to tell me? Does the regular user need both?

I guess Charge means how much energy is left in battery, this would be the value displayed on any common device.
Voltage would then propably be an absolute Value of the Voltage of the Battery.
At least that is what i think those values are about.
If an regular User of the camera would know what this is all about is an other Question...

Looks great so far. Can we also please get an audible alarm on low battery? I know there's a speaker in the chronos.  ;)

Nikon1 is correct.

No. The electrical engineers around the office wanted it though. ;)
It might be useful to determine battery issues when things go wrong.

That seems reasonable. I should probably add a visual warning to the main screen, too, now that you mention it.
I'd love to add in more "little sounds" to the UI, like a little click when pressing a button.

If you do that, then please also add an Option to turn off all those sounds as well, since some People (Like me) maybe dont like to have them.
I get the point, why someone maybe wants to have those Sounds on his UI, but for me one of the first things to do with a new Camera is to turn all those UI-Sound-Effects off...
That would be one of the most anoying things i could think of, if it makes all the Sounds, and you canīt even turn it off, if you would like to do that.

Absolutely! That's always one of the first things I do when I get a new device too. :)
