I'm happy to agree. I won't comment on video features in video orientated cameras, you won't comment on video features not in photo orientated cameras. I won't say you don't need that feature and you shouldn't say my photo orientated cameras should have that feature. Agreed?
Maybe the problem here lies in the fact the lines between photo and video products have been blurred and will continue to do so even more, hence the entire reason this debate is even happening.
The main criticism seems to me that Canon is slow to respond to this reality in the same way they were to full frame mirrorless. I don’t think anyone can argue with the fact that the (edit: many of the) people left in this shrinking market are moving towards mirrorless and they demand the best of both worlds in photo & video.
The photo only consumer market is shrinking drastically. That’s a fact. The YouTube generation and video market is increasing. Video content commercially consumed is massive and growing.
Unfortunate for camera makers, a phone will do just fine for a majority of internet photos and apps. Not so for video.
And lastly, everyone wants value and versatility to some extent. Much of the market that is spending $10k-20k on gear wants all of it to work seamlessly together. One brand, one set of lenses, photo and video together......
And I’m willing to bet amateurs, small studios, commercial and portrait, marketing companies, and especially the wedding industry are bursting at the seems with hybrid shooters.
