Concept for the new X200, very similar to the old X100/X100S but with some new switches.
- Continuous shooting with a proper buffer so that it is possible to continue shooting immediately after a short burst. On the Canon EOS1D you could shoot a burst and shoot another burst immediately. Even on the X100S you have to wait interminable seconds even if you only shot a two-picture burst.
- Shooting priority shutter release. That is, when the button is pushed all the way down the picture is captured, no waiting for autofocus, no nothing.
- Focus tab on the focusing wheel with always-on manual focus that automatically brings up digital split image or peaking. (On the lens focus wheel)
- Dedicated shooting-mode switch: Single - Macro - Continuous. Macro is in the middle because if you shoot macro you have the time to be precise when changing mode. (Drawn on the left top edge)
- Dedicated ISO-dial that you have to lift to turn to automatic. (Below the shutter release)
- Dedicated flash-mode switch. (Behind the flash shoe)
- Dedicated film-mode switch (Under the shutter-speed dial) with a lock button that you need to press to change it. A lock button that you also need to press to select A, B, or T on the shutter speed. (On top of the shutter-speed dial)
- Dedicated switch for the neutral density filter. (Behind the shutter-speed dial)
- Larger menu and arrow buttons, a dedicated back button and a large touch screen.
In short, I would like more manual control with easily visually verifiable settings. Oh, and a faster camera.
