First off, I'm a photographer! If I wanted to be a videographer, they sell video cameras...
Well good for you.
As was said, you may not be, but there are (apparently) many who dabble in both, or do video exclusively and really appreciate the features and benefits of DSLR video.
I'm not sure if Canon R&D read these posts,
Probably not. I'm sure they could find much better places to hear whining.
but I'm tired of waiting for the 5D3, I'm on the verge of packing up and heading to camp Nikon.
I'll be sure to play the violin in the hallway on your long, sad journey out of the building.
If the 5D3 ever arrives, I don't need video...Canon please just deliver a full frame, moderate megapixels camera with a solid AF and robust ISO.1
Because, you know, they didn't deliver on any
of those with the 5D Mark II from the 5D classic. No progress at all. Damn them!
Perhaps WiFi and GeoTagging, they squeeze that stuff into watches these days, it's not too much to ask.
You can attach a 400mm f/2.8 lens to your watch??? Take razor sharp images of static or moving subjects that can be blown up to poster sizes with crystal clarity??? Track a moving subject across your field of view??? Produce images to preserve your memories or sell to clients for hundreds or thousands of dollars???
Where do you buy your watches? I'm shopping in the wrong places!
And keep the price within reach, don't burn us who want one in the first 6 months!!
I know, right! While we're at it, tell that damn Lamborghini company to stop pricing their ultra-stylish, high-powered performance vehicles so high! I want to be able to afford one before I'm 60!
Don't flame me for being impatient, we're all checking the Rumors page daily...
We are? I thought most of us photographers were too busy out shooting and having fun with our awesome cameras?
Well...I know I am. But when something new comes, I'll be sure to check it out!
