Digital photography has come a long way in the five years since I bought my first DSLR, a canon 300D. So, using your best Mystic Meg psychic powers, what do you think will happen in digital photography over the next five?
Full frame DSLR`s to drop below £1000?
Built-in HDR capabilities with dial-in dynamic range?
Movie-mode to be standard on all DSLRS?
micro 4/3 to take off in a big way, with tiny interchangeable lens cameras replacing prosumer compacts as DSLR replacements?
Go on, let`s have fun, predictions please! Preferably not too silly.

Differential ISO I think is highly likely within the next 5 years.

A full frame Leica M rangefinder.
Maybe a sensor upgrade for the M8.

I predict that whatever new "must have" comes out, there will be a bigger and better one out within a few months...

That reminds me. Useless expensive gadgets to impress your mates, part 1; A GPS tracker that sits on your hotshoe, just in case you were too p*****d to remember where you were at the time you took the photo. The rest of us can just type the location into the metadata when we download the photos.

If Fuji continues to manufacture Velvia I'll still be using my Medium Format film camera.
