I'd like to hear the 10 second timer shout "3-2-1-Say Cheese" just before it takes the photo.

I would like to see zoom control buttons where my middle and ring fingers grip the right side of the camera body (under the shutter button, on the front of the camera body) This would require an external, small mountable motor that could be attached to any lens.
I also think it would be cool if the onboard flash had a function where you could keep it on, to use as a video light.
And, finally, but most importantly, I'd like to see a detachable LCD screen... one that is wireless would be ideal, but to save cost, I envision one that would be tethered to the camera body with a spring loaded retractable video cable. (a video loop through for other monitors would be excellent on this screen, too)

A little card dispenser that spits out a card with all the camera specs, everytime you're in the middle of shoot and someone starts asking a bunch of questions you can just give them it  ;D

I'd like a mount that allows me to use a cocktail umbrella as a light modifier for the pop-up flash.

2. Detachable lens you can place anywhere to take a picture!!

3. Eye-focus!!

4. Digital Focusscreens, so no hardwaresawp would be needed!!

5. More megapixels! (yes, that is meant HIGHLY ironic!!)

If the camera would include a laser device to meassure the distance.
Would come in handy, when you are doing some home improvment.

Not sure I agree with this but with all the 3D rage... 3D video recording capability!  :P

Eye focus can be fun too  ;)

Twin EOS mounts, imagine 3D photography with twin 24-70/2.8's attached!

Canon should include a secondary camera in the viewfinder, that records your retina with infrared light. This retina information can later be used to prove exactly who took the image.

This could be very useful with complicated copyright laws. If you rent or borrow a camera, technically you don't own it and copyright is retained by the owner of the camera in some cases (I believe... I'm no lawyer!).

It could also be incredibly useful as more and more devices are connected to the internet. Imagine this - a new generation of cameras have cellular connections to automatically upload images. Someone steals your camera, and you report it stolen. Through a retina scan, they can tell exactly who is using the stolen camera and return it to you.

Retina information would be encoded to a unique signature (like a digital fingerprint) so every image you take doesn't have an actual picture of your eye piggy-backed onto it. This signature could also be hashed with the image data, so any changes to the original image data could be detected.

As crazy as it sounds, its not a bad idea!

I would like to see holographic display and control in addition to the LCD from the canon DSLRs!  ;D

In such way, you can easily show and browse your pictures to your friends.

Another idea, an internal IR filter or GND or ND filter would be nice!

when the card is full, the camera should make the sound of FILM REWINDING!!!

Whenever you are cleaning the lens the following sound byte is played...

"I know what you shot last night to pay the rent, no matter how much you clean that lens.. it will never really be clean again, will it?"

A miniature Dish Network receiver and tuner, perhaps as a hotshoe mount option, displaying on the rear LCD.  Would give photographers something to do while waiting for 'the shot'.  Looking forward to seeing this on the bottom of the camera:

EOS 1D X, EOS M, and lots of lenses
