- I am omnipresent
If you're holding still and braced, there's almost no camera shake, at least with my friend the R6.
Unless you have 3 hands, I don't know what supports the lens and zooms, while the right thumb and right index finger control the camera.
Don't go overboard on this idea.I'm going on a cruise.

never would I photograph anything on the ship.
Canon's C-series RF bodies do the same thing with video. It's also true for Sony's video-specific cameras and even GoPros. It's all 10 bit 422. This is standard for everything less than studio-grade cinema cameras like Arri, where 12-bit 444 is the standard. The problem is that GPU manufacturers other than Intel aren't offering hardware codecs for 422. If you're trying to stick with 422, you have to do all your work in CPU, at some fraction of realtime processing. If you have video that's already in a supported format (HEVC 420, for example), a GPU will kick in and work can be done at multiples of realtime. Losing the chrominance bits in the source video also makes color grading a lot harder. In the end, it's the fault of AMD and nVidia for not supporting the thing that high end cameras have been doing for about the last five years.Yikes, I knew that Canon was out of whack! They make real video cameras for a reason.
I think the market for low-end (<$3k) cameras is disappearing quickly. As smartphones get better, there is less reason to get a cheap mirrorless or DSLR. And as the low end market shrinks, there is less reason for companies to R&D in that space, which means the cell phone manufacturers' massive volume allows them to make large gains every generation.
My Sony A7II is now just an overkill webcam for video calls.
Why care about most people? Are they the ones buying your prints or the ones you interact with in a photo club, competition, or workshop? The main issue I see is lack of artistic vision, followed by poor technique, same as always.I agree, and that is why I have a wall of lenses for my 7DII, but the amount of content I see that is now just cell phones leads me to believe most people aren't bothering to learn photography or color science at all. Honestly the poor audio gets me more than the botched exposure.
