What's the main use of your camera?

Hi,

I'm asking you just a simple vote below to help me in a university research.

I'm trying to understand how the market is growing, so I would like to know what's the main use of your camera: photo or video?

Thank you for you help!

Which camera ?

One is only photos.

One is mostly photos, sometime video.

And my camcorder is on video.

Photo.

Apparently the NEX system takes amazing video, but I have had the camera for 6 months, taken 4000+ photos and a total of 0 video clips.

I would be shocked if anyone answered either mostly or all video. So it's really just a question of all photo or mostly photo, I think.

All of my cameras since 1977 have been strictly for photos, and remain so through my current two - DSLR and NEX.  I have one video camera purchased for video in 1997, and I've probably filmed a grand total of 4 hours of video in nearly 17 years.  I'm a photo guy - I love photography, I thoroughly do not enjoy shooting video.
