a DSLR where you can buy a new and better sensor some year's after release and replace the old. You also have to be able to chance the AF system when a new one is available :D

An "idiot" alert (beep or such) to alert the user that the lens cap is on!

I don't envy you for having to read all these most certainly wonderful ideas. It would be nice to see a top 10 at the end!

As for what I would like to see, in DSLRs in general, is a DBP (or a Dust-bunny Preventer). Forget shaking the sensor, it simply doesn't work.

What I propose is a hardware based solution: a simple sliding curtain with a sliding knob that one slides in place before taking the lens off, and slides it back off when the new lens is attached. A very crude schema is attached.

Make the articulated screen extend a little further out (maybe even be detachable) so that it can face forward for your subjects to see. Then, you could display a boring 3,2,1 countdown or have downloadable "funny faces" that can be displayed to make the subjects smile. It might also be usable as a small teleprompter.

Here's one for all the photographers who appreciate the true art of spot coloring  ;)

Add an eye recognition feature so that when you look through the viewfinder, the camera detects what you're looking at when the photo is taken and will retain the color of that portion of the image while desaturating everything else.

To make it even cooler, there could be a custom function to select what color to make that part of the image where the photographer want to keep in color.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Built-in Hover-mode (Hv on the mode dial)

Perfect for all those times you're at a press conference, concert or breaking-news event but you're a chronic late-sleeper, have dubious press credentials you bought in the alley, or otherwise always find yourself at the back of the crowd of real photographers and can't see beans let alone be able to get a good shot.

Collapsible rotors hidden inside the pentaprism pop up* on demand and fly your camera to the front of the crowd, hovering there to get you the best view. (*remember to detach your Speedlite before setting Hv mode)

The included iPhone app lets you remotely fly the hover cam, see a live-view image on the iPhone screen, control exposure and take photos from the comfort of your back row seat.

Not recommended for use during lightning storms or hurricane-force winds.

* DOF reading will be really nice
* a flashlite that could split and transform into a twin flash
* detachable LCD viewer

any one of the above would be nice

Firmware that accepts plug-ins.   Open a Canon Apps store where for $1 you can download a plug-in which, for example:

- enables AEB in 7 or 9 exposures,
-or sets different limits on auto ISO
-or perhaps give new video capabilities,
-or perhaps Noise Ninja or Neat Image or Topaz noise reduction plug-ins
-or in camera HDR
-or ISO expansion to ISO 25 or 200,000,

Make the source code available to developers, (or open source)
then find out what new capabilities third party developers can dream up...

Then you can truly pick the features you want. :)

How about an option that, when enabled, levels the sensor inside the body if the body is within five degrees of horizontal or vertical. Bonus if the prism is leveled at the same time!

Remote control flying Camera.



It could record videos in RAW format like a photos. We can use this possibility to take long photo series or record a movie in the same time.

Additionaly when we want to use manual lens, we don't have to use any adapters to recive focus confirmation. We can also define our 10 manual lens to get EXIF data.

I wish canon would add a feature that detects impact or water and automatically engages force field mode.... and also you can swim with it.
Then your camera would never break EVER.

And it'll shock you if you aren't the owner.

And also serves as a night light.

It would be great if they would add eye tracking so that what ever you are focused on, the autofocus would adjust too.  That way you wouldn't have to lock and recompose, you could compose and focus simultaneously and much faster than conventional methods.  The technology already exists, I've done some volunteer work with VME where we discussed it for use in helping people with disabilities.

I’d like to see Auto Tense Bracketing (ATB). In ATB mode you should be able to set the amount, say a day, month or a year. Then when you’re ready and press the shutter button completely, you will get three bracketed shots in this sequence: Present, past and future tense. Of course there should be a custom function so you can change the bracketing sequence.
