Thanks for the reply Roger, but I wasn't saying that my ideas needed a critique. I was just trying to see what everyone else wants in a camera if you had the chance to make your ideal camera. The D800 is already on it's way and nothing about it as gonna change and I'm not saying it is sub par or missing anything.
But just to reiterate a few points
Quote>7.Electronic removable AA filter so you can choose when you need that extra resolution, plus make the IR filter do the same. RRR The camera already uses software for that. The filter has to be physically removed. CMJ- I'm talking about a Electronic or mechanical flip up AA filter and IR filter, then you get to chose on the fly what you want.
Quote>9.Wireless control from a smart phone. RRR It is unlikely that they will add any functionality to the firmware. We would need a hack for that. CMJ- I didn't mean add it to the current D800, I'm talking about designing your own perfect specs. If the camera had built in wireless I'm sure this could be done easily with software.
Quote>11.mirror less system to reduce vibrations and improve FPS. RRR Doesn't the D800 already have a "Mirror Up" mode? CMJ- I'm not talking about Mirror up mode, I'm talking about mirror gone mode! I believe Sony has the translucent mirror that doesn't move and it shoots 12FPS because there is no time taken up to get the mirror out of the way. Plus mirror up mode doesn't allow you to look through the view finder. No mirror means less vibration and noise. I got to try the Sony a few months ago and it is weird not feeling the slap or hearing the extra noise from the mirror.
Again, this is just my idea for the perfect camera and I'm not in anyway trying to say that the new D800 is inadequate or missing features that should be there.
