Top of the line cameras often have some really impressive specs and capabilities, but they also often lack some fairly straightforward features for seemingly strange reasons. Why is that? This great video explores the topic.
Coming to you from Corridor Crew, this interesting video discusses some of the missing features in many modern top-end cameras and how seemingly strange their absences are, particularly when such features are readily available on many lower-end devices. I really appreciated their perspective on the lack of focus on convenience features. Manufacturers spend a lot of time on marquee features like burst rate, ISO performance, autofocus, and more, and of course, that is for good reason: they matter greatly to photographers and filmmakers, and they are what catch our attention. Nonetheless, most modern cameras are highly capable, and as such, I would love to see manufacturers pay a bit more attention to features that make life more convenient or efficient, such as the addition of Bluetooth for easily monitoring audio or using a phone as a remote shutter trigger (you can currently do this with apps over Wi-Fi, but it tends to be more complicated than necessary). Check out the video above for some great thoughts.
