What would look like your dream camera?
Here is a sketch I've done today of what would be mine.
Here is the beast:
-1 fully articulable LCD
-1 fixed LCD (yes 2 LCD, why not?)
-1 enormous digital viewfinder with 2MP resolution and intensity regulation
-MLU, but I think get rid of mirror would be nice.
-2 (I never understood why just one H.S) H.S for flash, mike and accesories
-1 ftp transfer engine integrated
-full manual controls via dedicated wheels
-true HD video capabilities at 24 - 30 - 60
for the basics...
Of course, at least 30MP resolution F.F CMOS
Indestructible, absolutely lightweight with massive use of carbon fibers and waterproof.
For the mount?....mmm, no idea, it looks a little bit like a Sony, so lets say Sony/Minolta mount.
Oh, and I forgot the most important: it will be cheeper than 3500! (with 3 years guaranteed)
