My dream camera already exists. It consists of my eyes and my brain.
The problem is downloading that data into a hard drive that I've yet to figure out.

You may think that I'm being a smart--s. I'm not.
Someday, I think we might see something like a pair of glasses that we wear.

Our eyes are the lenses, our brains will be the processor, and the glasses will be able record the data being processed.

You did ask for a dream camera......

Cancel my order. Instead, I'll have a shot of what Zig is drinking.

Everyone will get their wish as soon as someone invents a box that's bigger on the inside than it is on the outside.

Doesn't Dr. Who have that already.
I would like the Lazar focus grid system like my Sony F717 had, it could focus in total darkness and never missed.
Night vision, which the Sony F717 already had, of course the picture were green but it was fun to use.
EVIL view finder with and movable LCD back display that is fast enough to be a real time display. My Sony F717 was close but that was nine years ago and I'm sure they are or could be made to work faster.
Audio recording to still images. Oh wait the Sony F717 already had that feature.
Full Frame sensor at 25 mega pixel. This sensor is already on the market.
Water and shock proof, 15 feet under water (like my house) and 8 feet shock proof. Point and Shoot cameras have this already.
Burst rate of 60 frames per second, again nothing new already been a camera on the market that shoot 60 fps.
Eye control focus system. Been done before by Canon.
51 focus points with zone control. Canon and Nikon already have this too.
Fast auto focus, which is already on the market.
Body weight and size of no more than a Canon T1i, my 7D get hard to carry after a couple of hours. Heck most of what I'm asking for is already in my cell phone, so keeping the size down should be easy.
Choice of color for the body, oh Nikon has that option.
In camera IS/OS as well as in lens IS/OS, oh that would be a Pentax.
Controls dials on the outside of the camera, one for f-stops, shutter speed, ISO (ASA) and even scene mode. Oops, already scene this on a DSLR camera before, you know that company Sony bought out a few years ago.
Programmable scene mode about 250 of them would be nice. There I go again Canon first EOS Elan had that and it worked well too.
Lets see what other little things would be nice?
GPS, already done.
Wi-fi, already done.
Wireless to a laptop for studio sessions, already done.
Oh, here is one no camera already has, voice control. Wait my cell phone has Siri and it works great.

Anyone notice that my dream camera really has nothing new in the body. All we need to do is take the best feature from different cameras and put the into one camera body.

Progress creeps up and you don't really notice at the time.

It wasn't many years ago that on a recently closed competitor's forum a debate took place about the possibility of VGA video on a DSLR. Cue the Nikon D90, hd to boot .Hell, it wasn't that many years ago that we wondered whether DSLRs could ever become affordable to the average photographer.

Whilst I'm not suggesting my wishlist will be fulfilled in the next year or two if we could fast forward 10 years I have no doubt there will have been developments that would not have occurred to us.

That said we might then all be using our mobiles....
