Gee, we haven't had any trolls lately either. We need a post that is highly controversial to generate some activity.

Maybe something contentious like UV filter or no UV filter!!

The new posts here that get people upset are those that talk about video, and in particular promote getting more video features on the cameras.

That people have mostly ignored the Sony ZV-1 (as if it does not exist) - a new camera in the RX100 series - reflects the uninterest and perhaps hostility to video here., since that is explicitly a video-oriented RX100. Yes, Sony has introduced a new Cyber-shot camera recently. Lack of new cameras is not the issue (it's lack of travel)

See, I am being controversial.

I think the previous and totally illogical hostility we used to see toward video in these forums has greatly diminished. There isn't a lot of interest in video beyond casual use since this is mostly a stills photography forum. There is even less interest for vlogging which the ZV-1 was designed for. For the vast majority of us the ZV-1 doesn't offer anything for video the RX100Va doesn't provide and the Va is better for stills.

No. The ZV-1 has better audio than all the RX cameras - the mics are better and you get an effective wind protector. There is also an external mic port, unlike the VA. The AF is better than that of the VA as well.

Audio is key for video.

The ZV-1 is not just a camera for vloggers, as I have tried to convey with many posts here of videos including those where audio is the point - music. Sony markets the ZV-1 camera for "creators" not just vloggers. The problem is that most of the reviewers are vloggers ao that distorts the camera's capabilities as a video camera.

The problem in this forum is not just uninterest in video, it is ignorance about it.
