| p.1 #1 · How important is video in a DSLR to you ? |
This post was prompted by a recent visit to Cameralabs, a British site where I read their review of the Nikon 800 (As an aside. Don't you think the manufacturers can drop the D from the title of every body made these days ? After all this time I think it's safe to assume it is, in fact, a digital camera.) In the review, they spent as much time going on about the cameras video capabilities as anything else.
It got me to thinking. How many people consider video important to the purchase of an SLR body ?
Let me expose my bias right off the bat here. AFAIC I couldn't care less about it and would gladly pay less money for, say a 5MK III without it if video was an option rather than just included whether you wanted it or not.
Other than wedding photographers who can save some time and money by doing the wedding pix and videos themselves, we're talking home movies here. Something you use a lot ? Something you consider nice to have even if you don't use it often ? Your primary reason for the purchase, or like me, something that's just never used.
I don't know how to set up a poll in this post, but I'd like to see how the community feels about it.
Good Luck, Steve
