I'll drink to that. If I want to take video I'll use my video camera

The D800 as it is, but with some kind of auto-aperture (like any other video camera) that operate so smoth that you can use it while you shoot video.
When the D800 goes on my steadycam, I (IKKE Oprettet) operate the camera, thats why its has to be auto.

Or in the next firmware update, make the ISO steps so smooth that you can use auto-ISO, that would be a good kompromise.

Why can't the DSLR bodies & lenses be in another colour, other than black? Would love to see colourful bodies & lenses!

I don't think people should be paying for video capabilities if they actually don't want them or need them.

Dslr should not loose their optical ovf. but they should come with bigger, better pentaprism. With LCD overlay.

High iso performance should be better, and better.

Flash sync speeds should get better.

No internal wifi or GPS. Many of us don't need it.

Most of us don't need more than 6 or 7 fps, more may just be overkill.

Better batery life.

More weather sealed lenses to match weather sealed bodies. At an affordable price.

Tougher shutter mechanisms.

Better warranties.

All lenses should be silent by now. And un many cases a lot more affordable.

In the case of many apsc lenses and bodies their price should hace gone down a lot more.

The only dslr manufacturer that is doing things reasonably, though I don't agree with some, is Pentax.

On the other hand in m4/3 land. Olympus is doing crear with their Omd Em5 and Em1, but I still don't like evfs. They are just not natural in use, and using them for pronounced period of time becomes pretty molest on my eyes. Thing that doesn't happen with ovfs.

Well, the perfect DSLR in my opinion would be basically, the Nikon D800 with all the current specs and more:
- fully articulated LCD screen – like the one in D5200 – it is so helpful in macro and such.
- articulated EVF – like the one on Panasonic GX7 – (I don't care much for view finder, I use it only when working with telephoto lens to frame the subject: left eye tracking the subject, right eye in the viewfinder to frame it). Test one before you judge it! And move it to the left side of the body, please! Top center will have hot shoe for flash and accessories, and right side for settings display and controls.
- body wise should not change: it is awkward when you have one hand on the lens dealing with zoom and focus and the right hand struggling with the grip on the body (see most of the mirror-less lately) – so, big-chunky grip!
- faster flash sync 1/500 or higher
- dual shutter mechanism – mechanical and electronic
- WiFi full remote control
- focus bracketing up to 999 shots – for stacking macro
- time lapse shooting – up to and more than 999 shots
- infrared, sound and light trigger functions
- NO VIDEO!!! Thank you! Enough with this nonsense! At least make two models, one with video and another without: customers will chose what to buy!

VIDEO FEATURES GALORE WITH QUALITY+!… Absolutely no aliasing, No Moire, no rolling-shutter affect, 1080p 60fps, 70mbps data rate. Autofocus on par with the Canon D70, uncompressed HDMI output, option of different codecs to use, ultra-low noise extremely high signal-to-noise ratio.

Full Frame in entry level models, lets face it, price has absolutely nothing to do with full-frame, the cost of those models is purely marketing.

36 Megapixel sensor with no perceivable noise in RAW at ISO 100 and 200, all at 16bit.

Abiltiy to take HDR photos in RAW mode. Ability to process RAW 'fully' onboard the camera. Ability to save the processed RAW file as a 16bit TIFF file 'onboard' the camera.

'Scratch-proof' LCD on the back. Full weather sealing including the lenses. 100% viewfinder.

Antishake mechanism effective down to 1/4 sec.
Long battery time.
200,000 rated shutter mechanism as standard on all entry level models.
Ultra accurate white balance in 'all' modes.
Ultra accurate exposure in 'all' modes.
Lots of Quality digital-filter effects.

All standard with a 16-85 2.8-4 'silent-focusing' lens.

Give us all of this under $1499, or else i'll do it myself and steal the market share off Canon and Nikon and Sony and Pentax who are ripping us off!

Lets face it, these features are ideal and should have been done years ago all at a reasonable price, especially considering the technology has been around for many years, this should be obvious, right? So why haven't they given it to us? Because the CEO's and engineers and developers need to get a brain and stop screwing us around, simple!

I am hoping someone can help me choose a camera.

I want:

 

1. very good quality photos especially in low light

2. large zoom, ie 20X

3. small, pocket size

4. user friendly, don't want to spend long time pushing buttons

5. minimal bells and whistles, ie wifi gps etc.

 

Is that too much to ask?

For Nikon on their next entry level DSLR to incorporate an Autofocusing Motor so that we could use our Older AF lenses.

I almost forgot:

Please make raw files in DNG format, instead of proprietary raw files!

I love the high ISO capabilities of cameras now, but would actually like extension in the other direction – for landscape work with water etc. I would love to go below ISO 50, and leave my ND filters at home.

YEAH!! This is not a commonly voiced request, but I completely agree!
It should be no problem to electronically make the sensor LESS sensitive.

I think that's a great idea Peter. I've wondered, in our current world of Instagram, why has no one gone for this in a real camera?

I certainly would like to see a Canon 6D mark II with:
- Articulated LCD as in 60D/70D
- 6/7 fps
- Dual SD
- More AF points working at f8
- HD 50/60p video with slowmotion capabilities
- No rolling-shutter effect
- no more than 24 Mpixels
- in-body stabilization is a dream, but would be nice
+ Please all this along with a 50-200 f4 L lens for less than 2500 $

All of the above plus the ability to take full resolution stills silently while shooting video without impacting the video in any way.

Do video with a DSLR is a little bit stupid thing!
I want a video camera with large (Fourthirds) and global shutter cmos sensor with
interchangeable lens.
A good 12mm/100mm zoom lens for that sensor and other fix lens.
Mic in put,
headphones out put,
hdmi for live-view.
Wi-fi with no delay.
Do it, and do it well. I´m a professional cameraman and when I shot photos I use a dslr or other good photo camera for that.
Thank you.

I would like to see Nikon/Canon and others take on the role like apple and introduce fine my iNikon camera or iCanon just like find my iPone or iPad etc. for the price we pay for these cameras and lenses the manufacturer need to do more to deter theft and retrieval of lost or stolen gear.

Also to into dude apps to make your camera specific to your spec and needs. Example WiFi/ GPS, tethering to smart phones, smart TV's, tablets etc. dual slots on on all new systems going forward with backward compatibility's.
