So maybe it's a preference thing, some people like pov, some don't.
A great still image can do a lot more for me personally.
I think right now technically there's a serious problem in the digital camera realm and that's the shutter release and viewfinder. Even the cheapest film cameras take the shot when you press the shutter but that's not true in digital. A lot of them have a significant delay, so you don't know when the decisive moment is. It also makes it close to impossible to shoot action sports like skiing.
Then there's the viewfinder issue. An lcd screen is fairly useless in bright light for one thing. Second, you just can't get the same connection with what you're photographing as a good viewfinder you put your eye up to. For subjects that are moving a good viewfinder with a known frame is much better than an lcd.
It seems like most people bypass the digital slr and go for video. Totally understandable and don't a lot of those video cams take great still shots? Even with a digital slr, unless you get the real expensive ones, isn't there some weird stuff going on with what you see is what you get and delay?
|I would like one so I can share my wilder runs with my wife, who does not ski...yet.
I think she'd get a better idea of what you're doing if someone else shot you.
