My Ideal Nikon ILC - Planet Utopia

My ideal Nikon ILC from planet Utopia

D8080 ILC

  • SLR shaped body form (VF/Flash on top centre) + RHS grip
  • 16mp 1/2 the size of an APS-C Sensor
  • New Smaller Lens mount - ultra compact lens system
  • 51p AF + predictive tracking mode
  • Mirrorless with large 100% EVF - OLED auto brightness
  • ISO 100-12800
  • 10fps (+ reasonable buffer considering only 16mp)
  • Smaller than D3300 - Weight <500g with 26-300mm lens 2.8-3.5 (35mm equiv)
  • Integrated flash
  • PSAM + U1/U2 + Scene/Effect dial
  • Two dials
  • Direct EC dial
  • Direct AF area button + AF mode (AF-S/AF-C)
  • Direct Metering area button
  • Direct Release mode button (S,CL,CH,Q,Timers,Remote,etc)
  • Direct ISO button
  • Direct WB button
  • USB 3
  • Single SD card slot
  • Wifi
  • Flash shoe + support for remote CLS
  • IR remote support
  • 1080p Video + decent AF unlike rubbish on current Dxxxx range
  • Touch screen when rear LCD used as EVF (i.e. for spot EC, AF override, pinch2zoom)
  • Horizontal tilt rear LCD (No Articulation)
  • Shutter release button acts as REC button in video mode

Must have features

  • FUJI Style JPG Colour
  • Smarter auto WB (current Dxxxx poor)
  • Manual zoom collar + Motorised zoom buttons for video
  • Smartphone app integration for 100% remote control + Wifi transfers
  • Intelligent scene recognition in auto mode (smartphone intelligence)
  • SMALLER, LIGHTER, MORE PORTABLE than current crop sensor systems

Cost €1200 including 26-300mm 2.8-3.5 (35mm equiv 10x optical zoom)

Basically as good as current compact bridge superzooms but with a compact ILC system, top end DSLR controls and more intelligent software like smartphone system rather than DSLR MS-DOS software and menus from the 1990s

A daft dream but sure what are dreams for?

Nikon D3300
