Re: I want one but...


About the idea that's shared by most who wanted a "no-video" camera hoping that it would result in a lower price - I find this idea delusional and unrealistic, because they did not realise that improvements that underlying good video deliveries also contribute to a better still-only experience - to a point that if all the tech goes into a camera to improve still only, video would become an almost zero cost addition.

So am quite glad you're not one of them

Would you still buy it if there's Zero reduction in price but #1 to #6 are all fulfilled (well, and #7 too even though you aren't sure how it works but want it because "it sounds good") ?

I want one but I don't want..

1) A flippy screen...its for kids.

2) 4k-5k +++++ video....its for kids

3) Pop up flash....its for kids

4) No bluetooth or WIFI nonsense....its for kids

But I would like...

5) weather sealed...that would be great

6) Simple menu.....that would be appreciated

7) focusing joystick...not sure how that works but it sounds good.

Omit this rubbish keep life simple and reduce the price and I am happy.

Yes I would (probably more to be fair)....but I would hope it would be cheaper.
