I don’t record video, so I have no opinion on whether a decision by canon in that space is reasonable. I do have an opinion about whether the motive you ascribe is likely. If prior non-Cine cameras offered it, then differentiation from the consumer and Cine lines should be put out to pasture.I'm not the one making the claim that there are a pile of more reasonable explanations why Canon offered p24 in nearly every camera they introduced with video capability for about 8-9 years only to start removing it across the board in the last year or so. If you think there are a bunch of reasonable explanations why cameras capable of p25 can't also do p24 other than the cripple hammer have at it.
Since you seem to think that’s the only possible reason, I’d still like to see that of impossibilities you’ve identified.
I hope to see how at least these two topics are demonstrated as impossible:
1) human error (e.g., 24p inadvertently left off the requirements document),
2) technical error (e.g., 24p not working quite right with this configuration at this time and thus left off in favor of release schedule).
