Re: wishlist for the S100 successor

Amazing how so many things can be fixed with firmware! Sounds brilliant. Any idea if manual focus during recording is at all possible?

Some good ideas here. The good thing is that a lot of these can be done with firmware. Wouldn't it be great if Canon added these with an update like the 7D?

  • Better battery life

  • Make camera more responsive . E.g. When switching modes (PASM), hide the large icons showing the mode when the shutter button is pressed. You currently have to wait a couple seconds for it to go away. This drives me nuts.

  • Brighter aperture on the long end. I wouldn't mind a slight increase in size for this.

  • Allow more items in Custom menu

  • Allow more functions to be custom assigned to buttons

  • Add noise reduction settings

And just to agree with the other ideas posted...

  • Faster auto-focus, especially in the dark

  • Faster responding menus. Get rid of the animations

  • Max auto-ISO should allow all available ISO, not capped at 1600

  • Remove IS0 80 requirement for long exposures

  • Handheld HDR and panoramas

Some minor ones

  • Better flash power adjustments in manual mode (only 3 settings currently)

  • Better battery life info. Currently show low power as the batter heats up.

And a dream would be

  • Constant aperture. I would gladly give up some compactness and telephoto zoom for this... 24-70mm f2.0?
