Canon are you listening?
« on: May 01, 2013, 08:14:48 AM »
We want more, MOAR!!!

Build us a camera that has more of this and less of that, and much more of this, and could do this with only a little bit of that, and doesn’t need that in order to do this.  And it must cost less than this and definitely less than that…  And another thing: we want it now, we want it yesterday and we will want more tomorrow, and all the demands will have changed by then so stay awake!

......And whatever happens, it must definitely have more DR. Anything and everything else is of lesser importance.  :P

Canon will not listen. They are not interested in rumor sites. They know the facts already. Consumers will buy, no matter what.  8)

Build us a camera that has more of this and less of that, and much more of this, and could do this with only a little bit of that, and doesn’t need that in order to do this. 


This = DR, MP
That = FPN

And it must cost less than this and definitely less than that…


This = Nikon
That = ??


And another thing: we want it now, we want it yesterday and we will want more tomorrow, and all the demands will have changed by then so stay awake!

Nice video is what I want. Sharp, with no Aliasing, RAW video. This is the main for me concerning digital.
Also, I would like to see panoramic camera, smth like Xpan (Fuji TX). I don't like 3:2.

And a ham sandwich with every new camera, dammit!!!

We're hungry out here!

Great idea.   And can you guarantee that Canon will hit its top and bottom line targets with your advise.

Easy to ask for everything and expect lower prices.

If you are a professional photographers how would react to a client who asked for MOAR for less?   If you are a wage slave, how about your boss tell you that you do MOAR and take a 10% pay cut?

Only if it has a nice slice of real cheese and a generous slice of a juicy red tomato as well. And let's just hope they do not forget a thin spread of Salad Cream. Heinz of course. Otherwise all deals are off and I may just switch to, erm, Polaroid. :D  8)
1D X + backup + different L lenses etc.

No tomato on the sandwich, both the cheese and bread will get soggy. Get yourself together here  :D

Says the man living in the city with the best French bread in South East Asia.  ;)  Making an ham and cheese sandwich without a nice slice of juicy tomato is just wrong. It would be like spreading some mayonnaise on it instead of using Heinz's Salad Cream, and since when did cheese get soggy?!  ;D  :o
