D4 feature predictions
Jul 22, 2011

I'm speaking in terms of having to gather news photos & uploading quickly (D1/D2/D3 target market).

At this point, the technical qualities of the D3s/D3x are just perfect. Sensor or Lens tech isn't going to help the photojournalists anymore. What we need now are more workflow usability features.

1. Android Apps

  • edit (selections)

  • crop

  • rotate

  • adjust

2. Capacitive Touch Screen
3. Wi-fi or 3G upload
4. Built-in GPS

I could really use the ability to quickly go through shots, edit, retouch, then upload shots from the camera to our web client, other servers, along with Twitter/Facebook/Tumblr without going through a laptop/etc. I need to be able to do this in seconds, not hours! (BTW Eye-Fi has been great for this so far.)

Maybe a few more tech features, especially in regards to video, which everyone seems to be doing these days:

1. Multichannel audio recording
2. Raw video format
3. Shoulder mount accessory
4. Electronic zoom interface on F-mount
5. Creative Lighting System for Video
