"Free Lens Mug! The folks at Photojojo has sent Canon Rumors a 70-200 f/4L IS mug to give away.
"How do I win? Itâ€™s simple, Photojojo is fun bunch of people, so something fun in return is in order.
"Post in the forum which fun, unique, crazy, wacky feature should become a reality in future Canon DSLRs. Post pictures, sketches, words, whatever.
Ok, this is the best hour I've wasted in a couple of weeks. I love the Hubble Lens kit, Beeping sound while I'm backing up, and the Critical Composition App (and so many more) - too much fun. Thank you everyone.Excellent and Obvious
(I second all these) dedicated mirror lock button, allow exposure time limit to increment up to 5 minutes (300 seconds), 9 exposure HDR, firmware Intervalometer, Optional anti-aliasing filter, one open-specification cross-brand lens mount. Extra Clever:
calibrate phase-detect focus with contrast-detect, and shoot 'tethered' without a cord. Yes !
1. Please let my first suggestion be the Canon Mug needs Image Stabilization
for those of us who want to try the Kevorkian drink with 12 shots of expresso ! (not me tho)
2. Allow use of Standard Batteries (rather inconvenient when B&H couldn't get genuine 5D2 batteries for weeks.
3a. Maximum Exposure
setting overrides all other exposure settings
: No matter what the time setting is - when first pixel gets fully exposed
(loosely like 255 brightness in 8-bit) the exposure stops - period
. I'd leave this switch on most of the time.
3b. Until we get a fully Electronic Shutter
(silent and never needs replacing, not even at 10 million shots), I suspect that because of the mechanical delay for shutter closing, this Maximum Exposure setting would need a prediction algorithm.
4. Kind of related -- a Max Dynamic range dial. Pretty soon our DSLRs are going to jump from 10 (ish) stops to 14 or so. To increase contrast in very flat sorghum-stenches (like overcast) we might want to dial down the maximum dynamic range (Yes that is an argument for LDR - lol ! ).
5. Focus Bracketing
firmware (easy to program) would allow macro stuff and even landscapes to be crystal clear.
Thanks again for all the fun.
