Why I feel Panasonic treats all but GH5 users as a second class In: Cameras Posted September 28, 2017 40 minutes ago, Kisaha said: @Damphousse Only in the 80's and early 90's we had a strong socialist (centrists, and with a tiny tiny amount of leftists in some cases) movement in Europe, since the beginning of the 20th century most governments were to the right, or far right, or fascists, or dictatorships. Unfortunately you ignored my whole post... 1) "Right wing" means entirely different things in different countries/societies. Ex. In the UK, and much of Europe, the term liberal means right wing. The way that word is used in the US is odd. 2) The government in power does not necessarily represent the opinions of the general population. Ex. The "right wing" party in the US has only won ONE popular vote in the presidential election in DECADES. Supreme Court decisions frequently are totally the opposite of popular opinion. 3) Many elections on the planet have nothing to do with right or left wing and the governments they produce do not fit neatly into any American box or spectrum. A lot of my friends would be amused that you think their government is "right wing" or "left wing". They simply don't think in those terms. 4) I simply cannot understand how you can make a globe spanning assertion of the intentions of every person that lives under a dictatorship. While in some instances a dictatorship rises with popular support they eventually go off the rails and do what ever they want without regard for the average person's wishes. 51 minutes ago, Kisaha said: People are "conservative" by nature, they afraid change, the different, the unknown. Have you seen the animation "Croods"? If you were leaving your cave, weren't very super careful, then you were possible food for a more advanced predator. That is written in our DNA, like a lot of our primeval fears. What does that have to do with "right wing" governments? I live in the United States and our right wing government wants to change all kinds of things. As with the word "liberal" it can have an infinite number of meanings. I mean widely available abortion, legal weed, restrictive gun laws, not saying the pledge of allegiance, not singing the national anthem were all features of America until fairly recently. 58 minutes ago, Kisaha said: Nothing wrong with Canon and Nikon, my favorite video cameras, are Canon C series and most of my photographer friends own Nikon. I have 4 NX cameras and 8 lenses, I hope there is nothing wrong to that either. Well if you have 8 Samsung lenses then you have no upgrade path that will utilize 100% of their features. That has no impact on your work today but when it comes time to upgrade you are going to take a hit vs someone with EF lenses. Not to mention lens rentals, accessories, repairs, support, etc. The video that comes out of an NX1 is great but that is only one aspect of an overall system. I don't think it is irrational for someone to choose an NX1 at the right price but I think the narrative that people choose Canon because they are "conservative" is a bit off the mark. Sure there can be some people like that but there are tons of people that like the latest features that stick with Canon for tons of other reasons other than being "conservative".
