MY ideal DSLR would have fast WiFi, reliable integrated wireless flash and shutter control that is universal (not proprietary) and even maybe wireless charging. Maybe bluetooth too? Most of the roadblocks are power related IMO. I am anticipating the day when the flash has a hot shoe on top for backwards compatibility but the camera easily communicates with the flash wirelessly (without a master flash) and I can simply grab the flash and move it around while shooting without extra devices (ie PocketWizard) attached to both or the need to have a master flash on the hot shoe just to talk to the wireless flash. I was sort of expecting the 5DIII or 5DX to have this but unfortunately, all they did was add some RF to the new 600RT flash and charge a mint for it. Big whoop. Not much improvement there if you ask me. The writing is on the wall for the need of true integrated wireless flash control. Why doesn't Canon just do it right already??
It is totally beyond me, why Canon does not FULLY exploit the one unique advantage their eco-system currently has over all competitors: integrated radio-wireless flash ETTL-control
Ridiculously little needs to be done:
1. Built in RT-flash commander in every new EOS body - cheap and easy
2. updated wireless ETTL protocol that enables 2nd curtain sync and control of flash-head zoom
3. Sensibly priced RT-receivers for 580/EX II and 430EX / II - linking them into the system, full mix and match with new units
only 4 simple steps.
* dramatically improved flash functionality and flexibility in different usage scenarios for the entire Canon user base
* no more wires, no more costly extra devices. no more extra batteries. no additional source of RF-interference and communication problems between gear from different suppliers
* PW looses loads of business. Higly-deserved punishment for those monopolists with their overpriced gadgets. For 25 years the have inhibited development of wireless radio flash control at reasonable cost, integrated into camera and speedlites
* massive, tangible advantage over any other camera eco-system - Canon would have a lead of 1-2 years, until Nikon, Sony are able to follow suit. The longer they wait, the more likely Canon will be leapfrogged by their competitors.
but .. NO. Canon geriatric ward is unable to see the flash light.
Ahh, but why do that when you could be willing to pay for just one of these features? They will spread these over many generations of camera to make more profit.
I'd love all these features in a camera body, but lets be realistic, Canon Inc. is a for profit business. :|
