450D – please Lord don’t let it include a movie mode

Oh my gawd, can it be true? The professional pundits in the photoblog world
are tipping the soon to be launched 450d to include a movie mode.

If this is true I’m insulted

Yes a movie mode, the sort of gizmo normally confined to fun
pocket cameras for taking blurry video footage of your friends at parties
while they knock back pints and pull funny faces, before throwing up
in your bathroom.

People who move up to DSLRs are on the whole are looking to get seriously into
photography and image creation.

So what do Canon’s marketing people think they’re at?

It’s not as though the 400D doesn’t have a list of pressing challenges for

Canon’s engineers to sink their teeth into. Like the cramped tunnel like viewfinder, the dodgy white balance, some quirks with its settings, its lack of
spot metering, and eh the elephant in the room – its under exposure issue.

Oh and how about image quality improvements - as is resolution, sharpness etc?

This is where I’d like to see Canon expending their energy, not on daft and uncalled for stunts like a movie mode.

Please spare us Canon.
