Because I am interested in how photographers interact with each other and learn. The gear is secondary as far as I'm concerned. That's why I was looking at the galleries and competitions. I seldom read the reviews and use the camera comparison only to see how new entries compare to their predecessor.

As to products and marketing, Both Sony and Canon had robust video camera markets and Nikon had none.

nikon released the QV-1000C back in 2008, it extracted stills from an analog video stream.

the company unfortunately failed to capitalize on it's own innovation.

Actually the QV-1000c was a black and white video/stills camera that cost 20,000 dollars. About 30 of them were made. https://www.nikonweb.com/qv1000c/ The video component was primarily to feed the EVF.

That's hardly a consumer video product.

Sonon suddenly leapt into the DSLR video market AFTER Nikon produced the first DSLR with video capability in the D90.

sony quit selling dslrs over 10 years ago, so that doesn't make sense.

Right.  The alpha 580 is listed as discontinued in March of 2012.  I'm not sure how long it hung around in the shops after that.  That's less than ten years if we are picking nits.

Have a nice day.  I hope you take some pictures.
