And again another issue caused by manufacturers adding a retarded video feature on a still camera. I blame the stupid consumers who think they can shoot watchable video handheld on any still camera. Ooh, HD video awesome uuh. You could as well use a cell phone.

Trying to cramp video features on still cameras only results in design compromises and more horrible video on youtube. Stop this madness. Make better still cameras and better video cameras by keeping these separate.

A camera can't have a high-refresh rate EVF without cramming video into the camera.  The issue being discussed is not related to the video in a camera, it's caused by the I/O ports that any digital camera needs, with video or without.  It's helpful to focus on the real problem at hand.  Fuji will no doubt fix the problem going forward, and offer a fix for those currently afflicted.  Just like Canon did with their $3,500 5DIII light leak.
