simply no one wants to buy a digital camera without proper video and LV implementation.I do. Actually the majority of stills photographers do (source: personal observation + common sense). LV is fine and useful to us. Video capture? Unnessecary clutter and distraction. very "un-pure" [in Nikon lingo]. ;-)
I was hoping this DF thing to be a fully mirrorless design camera , but it seems like just another boring retro looking F mount camera.
so I cannot imagine any one actually wants this , Nikon is wasting its very limited R and D money on something no one wants to see from them.
shame on you Nikon, you should try to come up with something similar to the Sony A7 with better video codec and Nikon One type of very fast shooting capability with proper PDAF.
I also would have loved to see a fabulous "all-out" Nikon FF mirrorless camera in response to Sony A7/A7R.
One affordable version "STILLS ONLY" and one significantly more expensive version with video-capture, to be precise. Not because it is that much more expensive to make. But because I would love all those videogrpahrers to cross-subsidize my stills cameras ... big time! Rather than trying to free-fride on my stills cameras and clutter them with all sorts of video capture crap.
If one camera replaces two dedicated cameras (stills + video), it should by all means cost more than a single-use device. :-)
