I wonder if I'm the only one who is confused as to why, if some users don't find purpose in a feature, it means that the feature is;
- absolutely worthless
- needs to be removed
It's already been said here in this thread that there are people who bought their DSLR specifically for its video purposes, and others who do use the video quite a bit. But just because some people never use it or think it's unnecessary, then it automatically makes that feature - and everyone who wants and/or uses it - irrelevant.
Additionally, if they were to split their DSLRs into video and non-video lines, I'd be willing to bet that Canon would amortize the additional cost of said split by increasing the price of both
lines, reducing the cost difference of the non-video line.
I just wonder why so many seem like they're personally insulted by having video added to their DSLRs, when it doesn't do anything to impair their use of it.
