How About This Canon?
« on: March 27, 2012, 01:17:38 PM »
This is a camera I'd love to see Canon make. (Well not at $6,000 obviously)

Seriously, a digital panoramic would be terrific. Fuji has a panoramic option for in-camera stitching with the X-10 which is the second best thing. I'd much rather have a panoramic option than the "double-exposure" thingy that Canon has been adding.

What do others think?

A sensor that can ONLY take panoramas?

No thanks, far too expensive for such a limited use.

If Canon were to come up with a panorama stitching option in camera, fine, but if its something that can be done PP anyway....

I love the panorama feature that Sony has on their DSC models.  Actually I am going to buy a Sony DSC-HX-200v instead of a Canon SX40HS because Sony has the panorama.  I find it very useful and it works great, stiching photos is a waste of time when you can just push a button and the camera does it perfectly!  I wish Canon could add the panorama feature to their cameras..

just make sure the DR, for this landscape style camera, is up there like the D800 and landscape photogs will snatch it up like hotcakes.  It wouldn't be a big seller and wouldn't universal as lets say the 5d or the 7d series would be, but for a nitch camera, if they can do it right and have the IQ people in that industry would demand, then why not? 
Canon 5d III, Canon 24-105L, Canon 17-40L, Canon 70-200 F4L, Canon 100L 2.8, 430EX 2's and a lot of bumps along the road to get to where I am.
