Is the lack of a touchscreen an opportunity to sell an aftermarket touchscreen monitor for videographers? Would the USB port provide an interface to allow this?I would use a camranger or a DSLR controller along with a tablet if dual pixes is introduced on the next full frame. That screen is still too small, and touching the camera may introduce additional shake (unless you don't care).
As someone who has ordered a 7D mkII and who will probably not use video much (if at all) I'm happy not to pay extra for the touch screen and software to be built into my camera.
Can't wait to get my hands on the camera!
This is why I am not screaming about the lack of touch screen and swivel. I wouldn't use them if I had them; just like pop-up flash.
Others need them, I understand.
I just assume that there must be reasons why they didn't put it. Maybe extra cost + additional software indeed are two of the reasons.
The 70d has it though, so the software already exists, and the parts can't cost too much as the 70d is cheaper than the 7d2.
