Question
Dear ZZ

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Digital_camera
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Video_camera


Do you feel Digital camera and Video camera having a Keyboard interface input device
integrated ?.

Do you feel these feature may be useful for Professional photographers for photography and Video shoots where Diary contacts , Event reminders and Calendar applications can be accessed on the Digital camera and Video camera ?.

The Diary contacts and events are added through the Digital Camera keyboard and Video Camera Keyboard respectively.

Though these above features are already added in the Smartphone device used by the Photographers, do you still feel it may be worthwhile to add the keyboard electronics hardware and the necessary software in Digital Camera and Video Camera ?.

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
Where would the keyboard go? It seems to be a very huge addition compared to the size of video cameras in todays' marketplace.

Perhaps it could be used more wisely if the keyboard were wireless option and could be distant or text information added at a later date.

And, with smartphones and tablets being used for videography they already have text adding capability by virtue of their virtual keyboards on the device.

That make sense?
