Your wishlist for your next body...
« on: September 13, 2011, 12:36:52 PM »
Not sure if there is something like a wishlist thread here... haven't found one, so I thought I just open it up. Hope that's okay...

What do you want for your next DSLR? What are your dreams, your wishes, guess everything is possible...

I'm waiting for the 7D Mk II (maybe the 5D3). What I like to see...
- GPS
- WLan (or an equivilent technology to transfer data to the PC)
- 2x CF card slot - or even better: CF Card AND SD-Card slot
- really cool would be the option to save RAWs on the CF and JPGs at the SD
- flip screen
- a simple configurable file naming system that addtionally allows you to simply add a new folder by one click for the upcomming images
- more video functionality (AF, the video "crop zoom" from the 600D)
- auto ISO where you can set an upper limit (not sure if the 7D already has this)
- an external LCD with blue light instead of this orange thing (I love blue)
- making the 15-85 an L lense with F4
- the same price as the current version

regards, Dave

More than 3 AEB's and from 1/3 to 3EV stops for each bracket. (Like they have in the 1D bodies)

If Canon wants to have this option in their better bodies then just do this:

xxxD = 3AEB
xxD = 5AEB
xD = 7AEB
1D = 9 or custom level AEB

Ability for the Camera to Digital zoom in-camera i.e. be able to set custom crops.

Circumvent the AA and Bayer filters somehow and give us more sharpness... Maybe create a 60mp sensor, with 20MP's dedicated to each primary color, with processed image at 20mp all colors combined digitally... Kind of like Foveon but done right! Maybe this one is for the 1D bodies... this will help them separate them from the other FF bodies in the line up.

There's kind of a 5D III wishlist thread:

http://www.canonrumors.com/forum/index.php/topic,818.0.html#msg10532

However I don't like to post long wishlists as it is highly unlikely that anybody official will ever take care of them. But to be honest: If enough people post a feature all over the internet it could be different. Proof me worng

I like the idea of saving RAWs on a CF and JPEGs on SD
7D - BG
3 Ls - 1 EF - 2 EF-s - 2 M42s
430EX II - YN560-III

For the 7d mkii:
3 stops increase in dynamic range
Very usable ISO 12800/serious reduction in noise at all lower ISO settings
Limits on auto exposure shutter speed in Av mode and limits on aperture in Tv mode.
At least 5 shot AEB
In-Camera Geotagging
A sensor with microlenses that does not reduce sensor sensitivity at f-stop values of 1.4 or faster
Dual SD-card slots
RAW histograms
RAW picture review
Focal length display during picture review
I don't think I'll need any AF points but, improved low light AF performance is always welcomed
No banding issues like with the current dual DIGIC 4 hardware in the 7d, absolutely none
An appreciable increase in the number of photosites, only IF the aforementioned things can be achieved.

i agree, and also the screen of the 60D would be useful.

Don't worry... If there is one thing for sure than a flip screen in the next Canon releases (may be except the 1D, but I doubt it)

Done.

my take:

5D mark III =

5D II basic specs + form factor
7D autofocus
11 EV usable dynamic range
16-bit RAW
36 MP
non-banding grain in shadow areas

pretty simple

that would be cool, at first when i saw it i thought it looked not so professional, but the truth is that it's very helpful.

I'm only an amateur so might be missing something, but I shoot my 7D in RAW only mode and get histograms and picture review fine?

Personally, I just want whatever bodies come out to be really popular so the used market gets flooded with old 1Ds ones, which I then pick up for cheap.

Though I admit it would be nice if Canon released a camera that had good UV performance.   Canon has fallen so far behind there that using a Canon camera for UV photography is treated as kinda a joke.  I am kinda hoping that when Canon puts out a mirrorless camera it will be like the NEX-5 and be able to handle real time capture.

my whishlist would be a lower mp count for non-professional shooter who never print in poster size.


an APS-C with 12mp with outstanding high ISO and Dynamic range.

Phase detection continuous AF during video (Fuji did that right?)

or

a FF with 16-18mp, 7D AF, Phase detection continuous AF during video recording.


100% sure Canon will keep doing the mp race.

What you see on preview is based on the embedded jpeg within the raw, not the raw....Same for histograms
If life is all about what you do in the time that you have, then photography is about the pictures you take not the kit that took it. Still it's fun to talk about the kit, present or future :)

I'd like a 5d Mark II with slightly improved noise at high ISO, particularly at 6400 and below.  I'd also like improved dynamic range and a 12mp sRAW option.  A single SD slot instead of a CF slot would be nice.  25% longer battery life would be useful as well.  I'd be okay with an on-board master flash; I'd probably take the camera on vacation more if it could double for snapshots at night.  If the PictureStyles button was user-assignable, say to mirror lock-up or something, that would be beneficial.  Perhaps I'm the only person in the world, but I actually like the 5d Mark II's autofocus.  I appreciate that it's not cluttered with autofocus points.  When I use AF, I just use the center point anyway.  BUT, I realize that's just me and it's an important move for Canon to improve the AF to the 7D level.
Gear! When do we get gear?!

Waiting on a 1DV

1. FF sensor that is 1-2 stops better in iso and dynamic range

2. Better ergonomics, maybe a new power switch too?

3. Video, don't really care... just whatever those video fanatics want...

4. 1Ds viewfinder or better

5. 10 or more fps, 9 shot bracketing... yes 7 is not enough for me.

6. More peripheral AF points

7. 3:2 high res BRIGHT AND ACCURATE oled

8. all those niceties: GPS, built in wifi?, electronic level

9. radio flash :P also, radio triggering

10. 1.3, 1.6 crop modes plus 16:9 and 21:9 crop modes, a panorama mode would be nice too

That's pretty much all I can think about for now.... all these can easily be put into the next camera.
