    i would like to have some matrix-composition to go along with the matrix-metering. let the camera read the scene and compose accordingly. like this i will always have a wonderful snap shot.

    I think it would be interesting if Canon could combine the 1ds series and the 1d series using the D2X concept. For example, FF capability at 3 fps and 8.5fps at 1.3X crop.

    Mine would be a stabilised full-frame CCD, high-pixel count (12? 14? 16? Whatever.)
    Titanium alloy skeleton, environmentally sealed body, bullet-proof LCD panel.
    Hybrid passive/active AF system.
    Able to shoot in IR and UV spectrum.
    More knobs & dials, less buttons please.
    Able to withstand full-impact drop from 1.5m.
    Accepts CF/SD cards, with option to write to both simultaneously.
    Eye-controlled AF.
    Hugeass buffer to take at least 100 RAW+JPEG files at 10fps.
    Improved circuitry to enable 1000-shot batt life.

    And in-box accessories would include wide neoprene camera strap, instead of those nasty ones that can separate your head off your neck if you happen to tug your camera a little too hard.

    All for under SGD1999.00 (incl GST, 5-year extended warranty, with trade-in scheme after 5th year, 2 x 4GB Hi-speed CF card, 2 extra batts, and 28-300mm kit lens, all packaged in a Special Edition Pelican Case.)
