Mike - when video first hit DSLRs (and even since), as usual, there were people all up in arms about how Brand N or Brand C was trash or abandoning their customers, etc., because N or C's video wasn't as good as the other guys. My position is - I bought the camera to be a still camera, and I don't care what kind of video it does or doesn't do. AND PLEASE don't add weight or dedicate switches for video that could be used for still photo purposes. If it gets to that, why not make a D600 and a D600v - like the D800 and D800E? As long as video doesn't impede using the camera as a still camera, life is good.
NR is censoring criticism(55 posts) (25 voices)
Not that long ago, almost all of us were crying out loud that Nikon sucked because the D700 had no video while the competition did, and now we do because the D800 does!!!!
We are surely a funny bunch. If one doesn’t want video, he should get a D700 for the sake of his own sanity.
This thread is all over the place; perhaps we should rename it 'Public crying room, come purge yourself'.
This thread is all over the place, I recommend closing it and starting new threads for specific topics I.e. video, who cares about that anyway ;-)
I think most of us reasonable people can agree NR isn't censoring anything but if someone can come up with a rational argument that NR is they can start a new thread but please have some facts and try to be logical.

I don't think this thread should be closed, kept to the original premise yes, but I think a thread for people who feel that way is a useful place for them to be heard. It's not a view that I share, or can remember seeing evidence of, but would we not give fuel to their argument is we closed the discussion that deals with it?
