Apparently Id buy it for $4,500.00!!!
Thanks For listening Canon!!!!!!!
Interesting ideas... hmmm...
My next gen 1D dream list?
1. Menu System
Start the transition from the clunky 1 series menu system to the more evolved 10d/20d menu system
Dump the half ton NIMH for a newer lighter and more powerfull L-ION
This would make the Camera much lighter and give it even longer battery life.
Yep.. give us the 20D's AF point selector please
Check!! (though I can't use it to select AF points YET! )
Check, maybe not 1/500, but faster.
We'll Have to revise the spec sheet for the "1DSUX-2000" to include;
Check!!!! (well 14bit aint bad! )
Check! Got it anyway @ 10fps...
Adjustable frame rate with Camera Controls
Currently to change from 8.5 fps to say 5fps as i have done,.. one must tether the camera to a PC and use a Personal Funtion Why?
Simple firmware changes should allow us to copy from card to another in camera. Also as Longwatcher says.. RAW to one card and jpeg to another would be nice.
Done, that an more options! Cool!
The "1" bodies allow you to save groups of custm functions in presets.. but I had allways dreamed of a caera with settings just the 10D/20D has on a dial... ala "Sportsmode", "Landscape" etc.. but allow the user to define EVRY setting for each of the modes. Ie: one setting for "indoor lowlight shooting" would allow me to spec AV with full open aperture, ISO 800, fram rate, single or AI.. different CF and PF settings, Even Which CARD to write to! etc... Then I could record a "bird in flight" setting.. AI servo, ISO 400 etc... and to get back to these setting once recorded I simply turn the dial.. or to keep the "1" weather sealing" it could be a menu on the LCD of 5 or more presets.
This Alone has been one of my own personal most sought after features in a high end pro body, and the 1D MkIII HAS IT!
I shoot a lot of Birds, and a Lot of indoor low light performances,. I can now set my camera up for these two TOTALLY different applications with one change in the menu settings! (once I record them)
