Re: D700 amateur user wonders why D4s has no built in flash

I certainly don't have any access to Nikon's design decisions, but I would rather suspect that there is no popup flash for the same reason there is no little dial with pictures of a flower, a person, a beach, a mountain, or similar graphics used to designate preset scene settings that may be found on cameras not expected to be purchased by serious amateurs or professionals.

Not that there's anything wrong with those settings, it's just that perhaps somebody made the design decision not to include features that would, in their estimation, not be of interest to the targeted market.

Also doesn't necessarily mean the decision was correct, that was just the direction that was decided upon.

"Sick cultures show a complex of symptoms such as you have named...but a dying culture invariable exhibits personal rudeness. Bad manners. Lack of consideration for others in minor matters. A loss of politeness, of gentle manners is more significant than a riot."
This symptom is especially serious in that an individual displaying it never thinks of it as a sign of ill health but as proof of his/her strength. ...Friday, it is too late to save this culture--this worldwide culture... Therefore we must now prepare the monasteries for the coming Dark Age. Electronic records are too fragile..."
--Robert A. Heinlein in "Friday"
