Me too!
A hundred megapixel motion stabilised hovercam would be ideal.

It must have wi-max, and be able to fly up to several kilometers, to 
take pictures for use with the OM mapping system.


I'd want several megapixels, ability to take at least several second 
pictures, for use around dusk.
Optical zoom would be a big plus.
LCD size not hugely important.
Wifi and bluetooth would be a big plus.
USB-host too, to enable printing directly to devices, or offloading a 
few pictures to someones memory card.

Have you seen the price of decent wifi enabled network cams?
