Re: A99 video a major disappointment

I'm sure they did read it. Will they care? Not likely. I railed against some of the intentionally dumbed down features of the Sony VG20 & 30 (as did many other shooters) for months. Those complaints were totally ignored.

More specifically the A99 seems a very niche product, one aimed at placating Alpha glass owners and not much else. From Phil Bloom (who seems to own almost every camera, including at least 4 NEX cams) on down, non-Alpha glass owners seemed to ignore this camera.

Not that poor reviews helped any.

In any event, Sony isn't exactly famous for caring about what people thing about any particular product - and given the short life span of modern day cameras, that sadly does make a certain amount of business sense.
