I think your looking at this in a traditional way.
In fact maybe your not, because this off link is a documentary about a still photographer, that is more than a traditional documentary, it's a multimedia show, because it features a still photographer.
Now take this up double speed and that's the present.
That's what we do now . . . multimedia, video, stills, both, it doesn't matter, other than creative content needs to tell a story.
The days of . . . "that's a pretty picture" are fading fast, not that what is shot can't be pretty, but it has to be interesting.
That's why my latest camera is a Panasonic. cough, choke, wheeze.
It's the last brand I ever thought I'd buy, but the GH3 is a multimedia camera. Horizontal, vertical, 4:3, 16x9, art filters, stabilized video and stills, it's a camera for it's time.
I'm not in love with the camera, I'm in love with what it does.
The world's changed, really, really changed and whether it's one of those crappy repeating gifs, or a real story telling multi media piece, what commercial clients, or even amateur blogists want to see is something that is more than that one photo, regardless of how beautiful.
Look at Leica's next new M. It won't even have a traditional viewfinder.
For someone like you, that shoots for enjoyment, you should look at some of these new mirror less cameras.
In fact if I want to find interesting, inspiring content, I don't look at traditional websites or portals. I look at tumblr.
My camera of the future? I don't know, probably a camera that shoots a real 4:2:2: 12 bit video, a 18 to 20 mpx stills, fast, really fast zoom lenses and electronic finders that wi-fi.
Lighting, needs to be adaptable, but moveable. Not huge 40lb strobe packs, but Lightpanels that work off of v-locks.
