The Market for Photographers vs Videographers
I stopped reading when I saw you call people "schmucks" simply for not 'wanting' a simple camera feature.
Your title is laughable though...
Most of you that are saying "I can't wait to get my camera and start taking videos!", after trying the video, and changing depth of field and focus while filming your dog or kids, will be done with video within 3 weeks. Zzzz...
I hardly call all you aspiring "grandkid filmers".... "videographers".
Get a grip on reality.
