No brainer. The 850D is inferior to the 850C, but the 930D is still better than the 850C and IIRC meets premium HDR specs.

Sill thought, but did you try hitting the 'Wide' button and see if they've re-enabled that? Could be in 'zoom' mode. IIRC, that originally worked.

I recently picked up a 64gb PNY USB stick. I can't get our Vizio E to recognize it formatted exFAT or NTFS. I don't think I tried FAT32.
