I don't know if this makes sense in a wish list, but I would like to have 2210/2230 (I have the 1st one, but apart wireless and PoE they share the HW) L-ified, I mean supporting mydlink.
It's just a matter of firmware, I suppose the HW of a 2 MP camera is more than enough for supporting mydlink...

I'm going to chalk this up as not fixable by firmware. D-Link has a history of releasing new "L" version models (i.e. hardware) rather than making existing models compatible. This approach extends across D-Link network cameras, routers, and storage devices.

This thread is a user-assembled wishlist. Although D-Link does view this (and other) wishlist threads on this forum, there is no guarantee which item(s), if any, D-Link will commit to new firmware updates.

More EVENTs in Event Setup  page, OK to have up to three of them active, but let me define more than 3 of them (8?).
Furthermore it would be great to enable/disable them directly in the Event Setup page, i.e. without entering the event definition by clicking on the event under the "Name" column.
The "Status" column is already there with ON/OFF but that's just an indication (it's not modifiable).

EDIT 1: Why not a larger Maximum duration / Maximum file size in MEDIA TYPE for video clips?

EDIT 2: Why not the possibility to delete directories in SD Card even if not empty? It's boring to enter each hour, select all data, click OK, go up one level, select another hour, click OK, go up one level, etc. Delete only works if there is no file in subdirectories, that's annoying...

A few days ago i purchased my first dlink, the dlink 2230 after being a Axis fan for years. The hardware of this camera is amazing but the firmware is shocking and it shows the lack of time that has been spent on it to compliment the great hardware.

Few of the most annoying things for me amongst other small things that Axis Cameras Firmware are good with are the following:

Should be able to customise the Subject and Body of the emails that gets sent out for event triggers, this will allow people to organise the emails depending on the subject or the body of the email. It also comes very useful if you want to send emails to your flickr account with tags included in the subject and body of the email, its useless having a subject stating your cameras name followed by "EVENT MAIL" and the body having "alarm mail."

Should be able to use Date and Time stamp in the subject and body of the email

Should be able to set Multiple Conditions and Actions for a Single Event.

Until the above is sorted, i am pretty much stuck with a nice piece of useless hardware as i want to send the pictures to my Flickr account with the correct tags and for this i am having to revert back to using my 5 year old Axis Camera which does it perfectly fine but the image quality is not as great as the 2230.

FTP option to save images in hierarchical time folders, just like DCS-930L/932L, with files named yyyymmddhhmmssxx, making new folder each day/hour/0.5 hour

And, have the file name broken up a bit with underscores for readability: e.g., yyyy_mmdd_hhmmssxx

I would buy the camera if it did these things.
