I suppose I needed to be more clear.
Have you actually used a DSLR within the last 5 years? People use them to make pro movies now.
I think my D5100 is within that timeframe. The knock is making time lapses, not movie segments. With a phone, I can build the time lapse while still in the field. With the DSLR, I have to come home, fire up the computer and do a whole bunch of work
"still a major post-processing effort on many DSLRs"
Have you actually tried it yourself? :)
Speaking from experience (see above)
"but UI not as good."
Stop using GIMP and try Photoshop :)
Was referring to stitching photos together on-camera just using the camera's small screen and buttons available, as compared with bigger screen and richer UI on phone/tablet.
"connection to Social media"
Ooooohh, you got us!
Who is this "you" and "us" you have conjured up? I'm pretty sure I would include myself in the "us". I include Social media as a "just-sayin'", as it is important to a lot of amateurs and a lot of pros as well.
Because what photographer doesn't want to post every shot directly to instagram?!
Again, just sayin'. While it may not be your cup of tea (nor mine, for that matter) there sure are a lot of pros on Twitter and Instagram showing their latest stuff.
You sound like an office user who can't understand why we need servers :)
You must be new here, kid. Welcome to the Slashdot. :) Off my lawn!
