    It would be quick and easy to use, could print very large, and could photograph my dreams.

    My ideal camera wouldn't be a camera at all, but a device that could materalize any kind of camera that you needed for that specific situation. Say you ran accross a scene that only a 12x20 would do justice to, them punch in 12x20, and there it is. If you are somewhere with your friends and don't want a lot of equipment bogging you down, punch in 35mm with zoom and boom there it is. Needless to say it would also materalize the approprait lighting equipment and dollies to haul the heavy stuff.

    It's quite simple. It would be a sort of a protoplasm implant in my brain that would take in the scene and my thoughts and record the image exactly as my mind interprets it. Then back in the darkroom I would expose the image onto the printing paper with my new laser vision.

    Don't forget to add an instant Sven to move the camera where you want it positioned. You can never have enough Sven's around
    Or Helgas...

    One lens that shoots however you want it to (wide angle, zoomed, blurred background, whatever.)

    One camera that shoots every format. I don't wanna take three cameras everywhere with me. Make one that shoots 35mm and 8x10 that I can still handhold.

    Give me a camera that gives me the image I MEANT to make.

    i agree with fingel, they may never move anything around and you may never actually make a photo, but you're not really going to care

    Just a Minox style (with zoom, of course) that would allow for enargements as good as ULF gear, and not needing a flash in available darkness.

    So simple, I wonder why they did not do it yet...

    Jorge, they have, havn't you seen the leica copy minox sized digital cameras? They're 2 megapixels and that's as good as ULF film. It just has a fixed lens, though. Give it another week and film is dead! Man, if you look back at some reviews of early cameras, everytime another one comes out it says it's as good as film and film is dead and then the next comes out and that one's as good as film (with it understood that the previous generation must not have been).
