Carabosse is right, but I have to agree with your sentiments concerning DSLR's that take movies.
I guess its seen as more versatility to the camera. What I do think is the camera manufacturers are selling DSLR's but are pandering towards the movie side of its capability rather than its stills capability. This is most evident with the type of zoom lenses being developed aimed more at the movie maker rather than the stills person.
Ever bigger focul ranges and more silent power zooms are very obvious movie trends in the optics. I don't need a power zoom for my stills, but this is how the market is developing and I guess we have to accept it. Makes me want to go back to 35-mm which I still do from time to time.

Well for my "cutting edge" (?) mirrorless camera, I have two manual focus Canon lenses with proper aperture rings etc, so I can enjoy old and new - at the same time - if I wish!
Well its realy down to the word professional it simply means that someone who earns a particular living out of thier profession . Professional photographers get payed as thier main profession.however if someone gets payed to photograph something as a secondry job even tho they have a main source of income in another line of work . Surely they would be classed as semi-professional . An amateur wouldn't have the skillset required to take a fully payed job. I have heard people say on this forum . I am taking pictures for a family friend only as a secondry photographer.! Balls ! Never have I shot a wedding and my clients said or we got second photographer. This is just the happy snapper who turns up with his four thirds slung around his neck pretending he knows what he's doing and later claims that he has shot a wedding and thinks well he can do it so can I . WRONG. They are the ameteurs .
Don't worry. Professional photography is safe, a professional photographer have all the skills about photography like timing is necessary whenever we have to take a capture and it's all done by a professional photographer.
A simple person can't give the better quality to a photo that he captured from his mobile.
