I was discussing the new Nikon cameras with a friend who is, like me, a amateur photographer who uses Nikon cameras. Neither of us will use the video features of the Nikon DSLRs and have no interest in it. In discussing this subject the question was raised: Who uses the video feature and for what purpose? I would prefer that the feature be removed and the price of the camera reduced. However, I assume that there is a market for this feature and would like to know who wants it and uses it? Do pros use it; if so, for what purpose? Who else uses it and for what purpose? I am just curious. I don't expect that my preferences will change Nikon's marketing decisions. Help me understand who wants video and why. I will appreciate receiving your input.
