    Going to make a thread that will make attempt to definitively sum up what most of us want in a camera.

    Iíll list two different camera categories. One for pro, and one for consumer.

    Will list all the main requirements of members here. Anytime there are conflicting requirements, the feature will be italicized, until some debate wins the argument and a few people can agree on one or both of the alternatives.

    Professional Camera:

    - 2K - Steve Yedlin
    - 11+ stops DR
    - cfast or ssd
    - 10bit
    - prores
    - log color profile
    - reliable
    - weather resistant
    - industry standard connections

    Ergonomics is a high priority for professionals, but there are at least three main types of camera bodies that are prefered by professionals. So, it makes discussing the issue complicated.

    Consumer camera:
    - 4K (1080 downscale option)
    - 10bit
    - SD card or ssd
    - 14+ stops dynamic range
    - wide dr profile
    - compact and light
    - affordability over weather sealing and reliability, so long as it isn’t a nighmare and bad user experience.
    - common usb and hdmi like connections. But could avoid that altogether.

    Consumer camera: whatever is in my smartphone.

    Professional camera is pretty close though for me.

    It depends on the price.

    The sub-$1,500 consumer hybrids should probably be content with the internal 4K HEVC/H265 100 Mbps 10-bit Log to V-30 SD cards.

    The high end consumer/prosumer should probably have some form of compressed Raw or the high rate Log 10-bit codec to CFexpress cards.

    Given what the smartphones are about to do, there's going to a huge pressure to make very compelling packages, including the high quality AF lenses.

    Hey now. Haha. Let’s see how this plays out. It is definitely toting the line, but i am willing to give it a shot. Let’s see if the five of us can agree. The marketing geniuses no doubt have more sophisticated tools available... as well as different goals than camera people.

    But yes... What camera people want is a joke.

    I think markets are big enough with consumers, that they eventually get what they want, in some bastard form. Top tier James Cameron and George Lucas types get some direct feed back, but by and larger the video world is pretty much happy with the status quot.

    There are different kinds of consumers. Cellphones have weeded out the ones that don’t care.

    Again. A camera with no limits is the one I want.
