But, when a third-party offers a fix for a problem... you've really got a problem.
I understand your point of view, but I don't consider it a 'problem', I believe the camera was intentionally designed that way for still photos, it was not intended to be optimized for video. What you consider a third-party fix for a problem I consider a third-party enhancement.....an aftermarket accessory. If it does the job it's a good thing for all.
I really don't want to give Canon a pass on this. It IS a problem. I video tapped my daughter's band recital the other day. There were folded up bleachers in the background. The Morié was so bad it was embarrassing. Don't get me wrong, I love the camera but when I got it, my intention was to do still and video. Yes I did consider the 5D MkIII, and no, I didn't have the money for it.
