Not disposable, no. Like with a roll of film, you put in the canister, and pull the film across and slide it into the holder. Though probably not possible, it would be really cool if you could put in a digital sensor that would stay in behind the lens. Include a canister just so that it would stay still, but instead of film being exposed and then moved, just have a digital sensor sitting there. I highly doubt it's physically possible, but man that would be cool.

I am sorry, Scott, but I still don't understand.

What you describe - "a digital sensor that would stay in behind the lens" - isn't that what we already have on DSLRs?

Only the DSLR design is even better because the sensor is securely mounted to the camera body in a permanent fashion - we don't have to mess with sliding it around or having a separate canister next to it just to hold it in place. The sensors are already held in place in a perfectly secure fashion.

I am sorry for not "getting it", but I still don't understand how your idea would be better than what we already have. In fact, it seems to me like you are taking what we already have and making it worse, instead of improving it. I don't mean that in a mean-spirited way, but that is how your idea comes across.....like a de-evolution, of sorts.

If you care to explain further, I would be glad to read more about your idea. I would like to fully understand what it is that you are proposing.

I guess I interrupted it as a replacement for film so a film camera can be used.


Not sure why, but call me JJ.

But the title of the thread is "New Camera Feature Wish List". This thread is about features we would like to see on NEW cameras, not features/upgrades that we would like to have developed for old cameras.

I'm not sure that I understand what you are describing/wishing for.

Do you mean that there would be something like a roll of "disposable sensors" in which each frame can only be used for one image? If so, then I am not understanding how the results would be different than, or better than, what we get with the "regular" digital cameras we use. Could you explain it a bit more?

I think what he is looking for is, basically, a digital back adapted for 35mm film cameras.

Some of us have wanted such a product for many years, as it is easily retrofitable onto a number of cameras with removeable film backs, like the Nikon Fn, the Olympus OM-n and the Canon Fn

Yes! That's a much better way of explaining it than my rambling non-sense. And yeah it would be a huge step back in terms of technology, but using my Nikon FM2N is so much more fun than my 7D. The shutter noise, cocking the shutter, etc. are all so pleasant to me. I would never use it for, say a wedding, but for just causal candids or photoshoots with friends it would be really fun. It's like the digital leica's; it's not everyone's cup of tea, but for some it's amazing.

I'd really like to see a DSLR with both an OVF and EVF. My friends Fuji (can't remember if it was the X-Pro or XT1) has both so with a DSLR it should be possible right?

It would be great to be able to shoot in LV with the EVF when you need more accuracy, then switch back to the OVF if you need speed.

Call me a throw-back, but I'd like a digital camera that just takes photos.
Full frame sensor. Manual mode only. Manual focus. A simple +/- needle meter. Can fire a flash, but no communications; manual flash only. I'd like manual (on-lens) aperture, but that would require a new mount and new lenses, so I guess using my EF-glass would be OK. No review (chimping) capabilities at all. See what you got when you get home. Or better yet, you can't see them for 3 or 4 days :) . All for $399.

I miss my Yaschica FX-3 S2K. The thing didn't even have a 'Power' button. A truly elegant machine. It didn't even need a battery.

For an extra $5,600 you can get the Leica M-D :lol: No screen at all; it's a film camera that has a digital sensor in it basically. That's why I want the digital roll of film. Shooting my Nikon FM2 is so much fun, but at time's I would like to mess around with it more and not have to worry about the price of processing and the film itself.

I just want a Canon camera with the capability of shadow recovery like the D810. Is that too much to ask for?! :-(

(Bring back) Eye Controlled Focus. Having said that, probably not likely in my lifetime. I don't buy green bananas!

I really want an advanced camera (manual + Raw, etc..) with a decent zoom that is waterproof, completely submergible doesn't need to be built to go deep underwater. A camera that can truly go swimming. I do not want a housing.

Anything running Android with a decent processor (that doesn't use a ton of battery), 120fps or better slowmotion 4k video, some kind of new AF that is amazingly fast, more DR, better high ISO, full frame mirrorless? Hmm. Maybe I should just move to Sony lol.
