Following recent threads about ClubSNAP t-shirts, server space, photo vests, I had a brainwave. What do you guys reckon about a ClubSNAP DSLR?
That way we could design it the way we wanted. Just think, no noise ISO 6400, 148mp, 30fps, etc.
Only drawback I can see is to decide what mount to put on it.
What do you guys think? I don't actually think it will be that expensive. With 10000 members, and about half of whom already own DSLRs, if all of us switch over to buy one or two each, it'll definitely be a financial success.
Here're some more ideas I thought for possible inclusion:
 VR built into the photographer.
 4x5" super high resolution, super low noise sensor (CCD or CMOS undecided)
 kit lens included (14-400mm equivalent/1.4-2.8 AF-USM DO IS NANO VR ED L G SSM APO Di)
 1005 focusing points, selectable via Canon style thumbwheel
 High speed crop mode - 84mp, 54fps
 Super high speed crop mode - 48mp, 96fps
 Super super high speed crop mode - 32mp, 128fps
 Takes 2.5" or 3.5" hdd
 Dedicated orbiting satellite for real time, go anywhere wireless transmission of pictures (pending ClubSNAP budget)
 And I've always dreamed of having a camera that does this but I'm not sure how practical or economical it will be to include, but ideally the camera must take pictures.
Who's interested to join the planning?
Fine print: this is a spoof post and in no way officially connected with ClubSNAP. All nominations for the name of the new DSLR should be submitted by 18 January 2003. Judges decision is final and no correspondence will be entered into. DSLRs supplied without return postage will be kept for 21 hours and then destroyed.
