Open source UI... Let us reprogram all the buttons, customize auto ISO, open up the USB port for GPS or WI-FI, run scripts for time lapse.

In your dreams, but yes!

- Replace the DOF button with a HDR on-of botton


I lolled pretty hard at this.

We should have a selective colour button.

Aren't these threads fun? I think everybody wants something slightly different.

I'd like to see a sub-$2000 full frame body with the following:

- popup flash with wireless TTL flash control ala 7D/60D
- less than 21 megapixels (and noise improvements)
- perfectly usable ISO 6400 (on par with Nikon D3 at least)
- 5 frames per second
- 7D autofocus array (although it wouldn't bother me if they didn't change it)
- decent auto focus in video mode
- ability to use EF-S lenses in crop mode (fewer megapixels, ala D3)

That's about it. Everything else Canon has done is pretty solid already.

1.  Step through DOF to allow use of Helicon focus
2.  Color exposure meter similar to Nikon 1005 pt meter
3.  choice of hi or low resolution at FF / 1.3 / 1.6 crop
4.  2 CF cards
5.  20 shot buffer at hi resolution, FF
6.  FF high resolution, 6 FPS, 32 MP (1.3 x 10 FPS)

Here's my Canon wishlist:

First of all:
- A 2.4ghz wireless flash system, integrated into all new DSLRs and speedlites

Second: A 1-series style APS-C body:
- Close to the 7D in terms of features
- Integrated portrait grip, but overall slightly smaller dimensions than a 1D
- Dual cardslots
- Interchangable focusing screens
- 1-series style control layout
- Integrated GPS (deactivatable)
- Integrated 2.4ghz wireless flash controller (see above)

Third: An EF-mount compatible, mirrorless APS-C camera:
- Compatible with normal EF and EF-S lenses via an extension tube
- Similar in size and style to the Sony Nex models, but with more hardware controls (look at the Fuji X100 for inspiration)
- Magnesium alloy body
- Flip-up, high-resolution LCD screen
- Optically laminated glass screen cover (just like the 7D or 1D4)
- Integrated GPS (deactivatable)
- Integrated 2.4ghz wireless flash controller (see above)
- An accompanying line of relatively compact f/2 primes: 24mm / 50mm / 85mm

What's the deal with the mirrorless camera, you might ask. Simple: Not only is it's a camera you can always have with you when travelling light - it also doubles as a backup camera or second body for people who can't or simply don't want to lug around a second pro body in those situations.

Anyway, I don't think we'll see any of the stuff above. ;)


I won't comment on FF at this point, except that I'm trilled to see what Canon comes up with in the 5D3 and I also hope that they'll finally build a real D3S-competitor (FF and fast).
