I get the no extra cost bit, but, seriously, a 7DII...how (considering Canon's extensive line up of models) is this considered a camera for video (in that people think it should have come with articulated screen and even touch screen)?

The 7DII is a sports and wildlife still camera...

If you brought one for video use, you probably got the wrong model...


Yes it is a is a sports and wildlife still camera..., so was the 7D in its day.

You get the video basically for free, a bit more software development using IP Canon probably already has. Some people use it for short clips of wildlife. TBH without a video peaking viewfinder it is a bit limited but better than nothing.

Of course it is no replacement for a proper pro HD video camera, but these do not come in at a budget price although the weight is a lot better these days, on top of that a solid video 'pod and damped head makes the real deal quite a lot of kit the manage, a dedicated still camera as well starts looking like a light accessory. This is why the feature is liked by some.

I can't see why you would object to something some people find useful, I can not see anyway the feature gets in the way of still camera use.

It's not the video i'm objecting to, it's the suggestion that the 7DII should have had an articulated touchscreen...

This would have been a deal breaker for me...

I have used a 'proper', heavy and cumbersome broadcast video camera before (the ones you sit on the shoulder and have an extended eye piece)...exceptional video quality, but analog....

It's ok for manufacturers to include additional features, as long as the add ons don't interfere with the primary use of the product.

...and, it's not like Canon don't already offer products that do great video and have an articulated screen, if that is what you require...

I was responding to

i'm actually annoyed that part of the purchase price was to cover this feature I didn't want, didn't need and never use.

Articulated screes, yes I can see them being useful, not sure about robustness myself. Does any one have any reliability statistics on them though...

The 7DII is a sports and wildlife still camera...

If you brought one for video use, you probably got the wrong model...

I really dont see the problem, the video is great to have even though I rarely use it and when I do use it I find it pretty good as it focuses live unlike my 5DIII. The intervalometer is also great, used that a few times. If canon made the next 7D just basic for stills only I cant see it selling as much as perhaps a Nikon as people would just laugh at the lack of upgrades. Like I said canon is in the business of selling so they are going to aim at the widest market and plenty of wildlifers like to get a bit of video anyway. As for touch screen and articulated screen, well 7DII does not have them for whatever reason chose to leave it off so no issue. I do know plenty of photographers that did NOT get the 7DII because of the lack of a flip screen, one of my friends has gone with the 80D because he does a lot of macro low dow to the ground, unless you are young and fit 7DII is useless for that

It's not the video, it's the idea of supporting the video function with an articulated screen, which would have stopped me buying an otherwise perfect camera...
