If you're like me, and for your sake I hope
you're not, you probably find yourself taking way too many pictures with
your iPhone and not enough with your real camera. Contrary to what Mr.
Jarvis says, the best camera you have is not the one doing double time
as a cell phone, but the one you are neglecting because your iPhone has
so many cool features that no camera to date has. We are in the dawn of
the mobile app revolution! Why should our smart phones hog all the photo
I see glimpses here and there of my wish list, seeping through the planned obsolescence that has become the digital camera mantra.
already! Build me a camera that goes the distance...here's how:
1- Multiple Aspect Ratios
Believe it or not Canon, not everyone shoots 35mm format.
Give me squares and panos, and I'll give you my $$$.
2- In Camera Apps
My iPhone can do it, so why can't my $3000 DSLR?
HDR, Multiple exposure, panorama, diorama,
pinhole...I have to believe that all of the mobile app developers are
chomping at the bit to the get their precious little apps in the hands
of more people.
3- Built in Pro Microphone
Love the HD Video, who doesn't?! The audio, however, leaves much to be desired.
Take note of the Zoom Q3HD or the new Olympus LS20M.
Again, my $300 pocket cam can do it, so why can't my $3000 DSLR?!
4- Built in Wireless Tethering
I want my DSLR to pick up my local WiFi signal, access network directories, and transmit my photos to my computer or server. Even better, how about 4G?!
5- Touch Screen LCD Display
If for no other reason, because it's cool.
6(added bonus) - Built in Radio Transmitter
Radio slaves are getting cheaper and cheaper, and most pros are using professional strobe equipment on a regular basis. This camera is still for pros, right?
