I recently posted a question that was put on hold as off-topic. I understand that questions about videography are off-topic here on Photo.SE (as discussed here), and this question is by no means a re-open request or let alone a rant!
I have a question regarding the on-topic section of the help center.
If you have a question about...
- using photographic equipment
...then you're in the right place to ask your question!
One comment on my question stated:
The SX230 HS may be photography equipment, but as soon as you start using it for video it becomes video equipment, and not photo equipment [...]
In my opinion the Canon SX230 HS is photography eqipment. Its main purpose is to take photos, while I can take videos, too. Following that interpretion of the guideline mentioned above a question like "How can I take still images with a Sony HDR-CX190 camcorder" would be on-topic, because the camcorder then no longer is video equipment, but photo equipment?
I think that for my question I am more likely to find help here, rather than on avp.SE, while for the question about the camcorder I will more likely find help on avp.SE than here.
Thus my question is: Is this interpretion of the help center's on-topic section intended? Because if that is the case I propose to extend the info:
- using photography equipment unless used for videography
