Or are you wanting these features? It's unclear from your post.

Firmware update

I need new firmware that will enable fallowing functions:
-ability to record motion detection, very useful function
-720p video support, because this camcorder can record high bitrate videos up to 8.5Mbps
-allow to use as webcam, this is optional if motion detection can be enabled

I believe this requires changes just in software

No one here will make those changes.

So far, no camcorder maker has added such after the product is put on the market. Because of this you should return this camcorder and shop for units that do what you need.

It's all about profit. But I can't buy now new camcorder. It would be simpler upgrade camcorder software. If companies need profit why they don't sell firmwares? Although they should do it just to have good name.

Do you recall your history?

A big maker long ago tried to sell upgraded drivers and it went down in flames. The message was loud and clear that few would pay for such.

And I don't need to remind you that software development is not cheap. To add more costs you see that recent Apple settlement so you can't add features without incurring possible patent issues. Yes, using the camcorder as a web cam is patented. So you can't just add it and not incur more costs.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
