Really? Then why do the Canon engineers install dual digic processors?
Because they can. Because using two or three processors that are already in production and part of other current cameras is cheaper (for Canon) than designing and producing a single new processor to do all of the same functions.
Processors in cameras are the bottom of the barrel- they are significantly behind the curve that cell phone processors ride on, which are themselves behind the industry leaders like Intel, IBM, TI, and Samsung, to name a few. Course Samsung makes some of those; but they're not very good .
Canon could make a camera that takes SSD's and could shoot 60FPS at 20MP in a lossless format until it runs out of storage today. It's not a matter of technology, it's a matter of return on investment.
