Hi everyone,
This has been puzzling me for a while, now that Video has been implemented in DSLR's, i am struggling to see, big new things in DSLR terms, there will always be a MP race, but what next? But from what i can see, screens are not going to get any bigger (except on Pro bodies maybe), we already have very detailed screens, 100% VF coverage, and nice long battery life, and LV (Room for improvement is in a minority, in alot of these cases).

So, i invite you to share your questions and thoughts as to what will be:
'The Next Big Thing' in the world of DSLR camera's.

I want 802.11n built in on higher end bodies.

I want to see 802.11n grips below £400 for semi pro bodies.

I want 48mm/56mm sensors.

I want 2k video, selectable framerates, no jello.

I want a option for specific lenses to have motorized zoom controled from the body

I want 16bit ad converters with sensors that actually have a 16bit wide dynamic range.

I want 96MP foveon sensor. (24MP)

are lens included? cause i like 16 to 300 lense but really copact and realy very small. and great IQ
Is that posible? Imagination rocks!!! :) :) :)

For the body i like face marking and every action of that face being marked the camera will give a coordinate to the tripod and take picture in automaticaly OH man! there's no photographer when that day comes...
:lol: :lol:

:lol: (The inventions of computers are really typical came from the imagination of the builders and being developed by developers, now we can consider that from the imagination of people where we make things real.) :lol: and that includes camera?

more durable bodies in entrylevel and prothusiast cameras.

I'm not sure they will do that much physical improvement to low end bodies as they are much more price sensative.

I think the next big thing will be fast contrast AF live view, as that is what it will take to make it generally usable on all systems, but this is probably lens limited in part so I'm not sure if it will happen.

A personal wish item is the ability to custom program a complex exposure ruleset. For those times when PASM don't cut it. e.g. set a preference to aperture and shutter, let camera vary ISO initially, when out of range only then start to alter aperture or shutter, until those hit certain limits before again raising ISO further etc... why do I want this? Because for wildlife I'd prefer a medium aperture with fast shutter. If I fix either one, values for the other can go silly. So usually I end up going manual and vary the ISO by hand. In essense, I want the camera to do what I want it to do but without me having to manually do it!

I can think of a variation to existing sensor tech which would practically give unlimited dynamic range on the top end. Imagine never having a blown highlight again, but it doesn't help shadows. Alas it would take quite a bit of circuitry for each photosite, and as a rough estimate the amount of on-chip circuitry needed to do it would be comparable to a top end multi-core desktop CPU. So might not be practically implementable yet...

A seperate mirror assembly and another reflex focusing screen, so thet we can get phase change autofocus in live view. May be too far fetched :)

lower end bodies :
1.better kit lenses! (sony is on to something with that 18-70 range kit)
2.better grip
3.is the MP war necessary on these models?!?!
4. plastic is fine to keep cost down, but lets make them more sturdy
feeling...im talking to you CANON! the XS's memory flap is redunculous
5. see high end #3
higher end bodies :
1.faster processors! (im talking about 6-15fps in raw full time!)
2.802.11n would be nice for sure DD. but lets make that straight up in body while fantasizing
3.SDXD format compatible (but in compact flash version for high end of course)
4.100% view is always nice
5.running out of things....dual CF slots?
6. way to do video without burning a hole in the sensor
7.MORE D3 like SENSORS! (beautiful looking high ISO)
8.Microwave oven for those long outings?

How about a move to in-body stabilisation and proper video recording?

Wifi would be nice, maybe even 3G cards which upload the shots to your flicr? Integrated GPS and bluetooth. GPS for tagging, bluetooth for sending the file over to friends/people you just met on a holiday etc.

Apart from adding toys like built in GPS and Bluetooth the only real improvements I see or would hope for is better dynamic range and better quality high ISO.

A few months ago I would of said that cameras are steadily improving but the cost remains roughly the same – the current UK exchange rate and manufacturer price increases changes that view!

I think there'll be more gadgets before the sensor technologies change too dramatically, so yes, wireless networking and GPS would seem likely once video, VGA screens and HDMI become commonplace.

If Micro 4/3 and the new Samsung format become popular, we may also see some mirrorless bodies, but it'll take a LOT for Canon, Nikon and the others to abandon their lens mount, and if you're going to keep the lens to sensor distance the same, then losing the mirror isn't as compelling.

But I would really like to see contrast based AF that works as well as the Panasonic G1 on DSLRs.

And obviously greater manual control for video!
