Re: Please Mr Nikon, no video

While I would be quite happy with a dslr without video I can't see it happening these days.

I think I used the video on any of my cameras about 4 times in a 4 years.

What I do not get is how people can enjoy a DSLR for a video camera. It's Heavy, awkward to hold up for any length of time and  generally unpleasant to use.  I see the odd person walking around with this ridiculous contraption strapped to there chest with a huge great DSLR on the front. Loads of fun in that - Not.

I have a Sony video camera . It it light , easy to hold ( it's designed as a video camera )  has a great zoom and produces fantastic HD video. ( I may invest in a 4K one at some stage but at the moment I have no 4K TV to play 4K video. ) It cost way  less than half my D810 and that was a D810 without a lens.
