Can't you just use an app to do the same thing for free?
tony brown: With my Mk I version of this lens when shooting wildlife, I can focus and zoom continuously with one hand without repositioning - push/pull for zoom and rotate for focus.
Now with rotary focus AND zoom, do I not have to reposition hand for each control separately?
I just loosen the ring on mine and use it as a push pull if I want.
Hinder: I have had over 20 cameras in the last 5 years, if I added it all up I think I might be able to get one 5 second video from all the footage combined and most of that was caused by trying to use live view. I just use my phone for instagram and don't need 4K for a crappy 15 second video the size of a playing card. I just don't need or care about video on my cameras.
Yes, there are some great videos made by people with dslrs, the majority though, use phones or cheap cameras. There are numerous choices so why do people feel the need to complain about one camera? Go find a different one because of all the great videos made until now were not made using the 80D. I won't buy a Greyhound bus to use on the race track but I don't complain about how it doesn't have a roll bar in it and too many seats.
I'm also thinking that 99% of people who post to youtube used a gopro type or phone for video, not a lot of people are going to walk around with a dslr waiting for a cop to beat someone up, a cat chasing a laser dot or some poor old lady trip and fall off a dock into the lake. Half the videos I see on youtube that are done well seem to be about people doing reviews of cameras that don't do video well, do we really need 4K for that? Are people waiting to do good videos only when they can use 4K on a dslr? I really don't need to see any more panning shots of mountain lakes, hot air balloons or surfers showing me how great 4K is. Just sayin'.
I'm not allowed an opinion? Millions of consumers don't want or need video either. Goes both ways, think of the majority who don't do video. Really easy, buy something else.

Why is it that whenever I'm interested in a new product it's not really even made yet? So many things are crowd funded and never even materialize. I've been through it a couple of times, no thank you.
Hilarious, canon sent me 5 refurbished SX280s after I paid for a new one that didn't work, none of them worked either, kept shutting off and they told me they worked, they didn't. I gave up and now this comes out, but the sixth digit of my Serial # is a 2. Looks like I'm out of luck again. Mine shuts off as soon as it's in the video mode. Totally different problem that they will NOT acknowledge.
Crap, this article is a year old! Didn't even notice.
tkbslc: Wow, filling out a web form AND paying $5?! That's almost as much work as getting a library card! When will the oppression end?!
Sadly, never. Why do it at all? Add up every form, tax and license that is required for everything anyone does and it's just more BS.
ackebous: Congratulations on your 2nd place finish in the initial B&W Photo of the week
It took ten years to find a female photographer stupid enough to answer their stupid questions about a stupid bag? That shows how high the demand is. Why do women get the handy extra pockets?
How about a camera for pervs that won't take pictures of naked children and calls police if they try?
What is this, the Commie Cam? So I'm not allowed to take a picture of my wife in front of a famous landmark? What happens if one person takes 1000 pictures in one spot, they gets all rights to that spot? I could murder someone at a landmark and there would be no evidence and no crime scene investigation? Good luck with police wearing body cams, they'll be able to do whatever they want in big cities and tourist spots.
vbuhay: Where you communicating with the pilot? I have been trying a shot like that for a while. Nice shot!
Thank you, no communication, he and the helicopter just kept circling while searching for a suspect.
Big deal, it's still the same size frame! Doesn't matter if it's P or L, it's the same size! Yay, I get to hold my phone sideways now?
