Voice recognition/command for the Triangle settings: Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO...plus other voice commands, such as: manual to auto focus and vice versa. And if your at a place where you need to be quiet, like a wedding or funeral or a loud place like a concert or sports event, then there's an option to purchase Blue Tooth Mind-Control implant. The implant would be the size of a pinhead. My sources say that the patent was approved by another undisclosed company that Canon owns.

Not sure if the body is deep enough for that. Would be easier the other way around - move the sensor forward in EF camera. But then you would lose OVF.
I was thinking of a mechanism to move the sensor back to achieve 44mm flange distance and just use EVF. I think Canon has already filed patents for this in the past.

Hmmmm... rather than DPAF, it will have QDAF?? That would be awesome.


Or some trickier that allows one set of pixels to capture one exposure while the other half another, and blended together for higher DR?


Who knows, when they say NEW feature, do they mean new to canon, or new to all?

Built-In Fold-Out gimbal.
In case you're at a safari taking pictures of lions and tigers and you need to run away from their danger while trying to do a selfie....oh, and built in hand gun....or a laser gun (no, that must be Sony new "technology and innovations" mentioned in yesterdays DPR article).

Sony users are chomping at the bit for this camera to be released so they can denigrate the R5. They'll also harp on about the "A7SIII" and how great it will be. I'm seeing it on other sites. So glad I ditched Sony recently.

Hell, I just looked above my post and the Sony turds are already here.

Well, the funniest post so far was "I peed a little!" :ROFLMAO:

But seriously, my guesses would be:
* dual gain sensor for higher single shot dynamic range
* software neutral density feature / LiveND / image stacking features
* night sky star focusing & tracking
* pixel shift 4x MP photo
* global shutter
* An unusually high MDot back LCD
* more MP than expected (50MP or more?)
* aperture bracketing (what I crave, but not headline shattering enough?)
* lossless raw compression
* an embedded RF flash controller

I guess we'll find out soon - hopefully it's good enough to "pee a little!" :ROFLMAO::LOL::ROFLMAO:

To think what can be possible+interesting with the current tech...

IBIS:
- pixel-shift
Sensor electronics (must be really specific to R5 - as R6 has "existing" sensor from 1D):
- Global shutter/other electronic shutter manipulations
- Faster readout, making it possible to involve some smartphone-style techniques (below)
Processing:
- image-stacking (imagine giving FF sensor to some state of the art algorithms from smartphone cameras - some crazy DR/ISO performance out there)
- depth maps from dual pixel (smartphones already do this) or some related perks
Peripherals, flash control, etc
- tons of possibilities, most of them are boring. But you never guess...

PS: I'll bet for pixel-shift, because:
- basically all the competition is doing it already =)
- doesn't seem difficult to implement.
- will justify for "R5-only feature" - those who want to squeze more MP from stills won't go for R6 anyway.

Global shutter would be great! But I am quite sure it is not that. Rumor says it is for Photographers. Global shutter would be beneficial for both - photographers and videographers.
