Taking photographs of kids is no different. It is not the aversion to the tool, but an aversion to a very unwilling subject.
I actually saw so many assignments where students handed in pictures of their younger siblings I had to discourage the practice. People seem to love taking pictures of their siblings and family, and friends.

Cool!

The original premise in the original post that I consider to be false is the notion that there is a pervasive aversion to video on this site. I realize that there might be a language issue, but it is probably enough to say that aversion in common N. American English means a strong distaste or desire to avoid. In the case of food, that might be to the point of feeling nausea.

So, no...I don't believe there is an AVERSION to video among the users on this site. (The all caps is from the original post and denotes shouting.)

BTW, congratulations on the addition to your family! A child is a blessing.

How embarrassing...despite choosing a Chinese name as my login and despite living in Beijing, I actually am a North American with English as my mother tongue. I'm hoping this isn't a language issue.
It's been a while since I've studied English, but I'm pretty sure my grammar is as accurate as most non- English majors. I can't vouch for my punctuation, though. I'm trying to get used to the updated keyboard on my phone.

As for the definitions you provided, I'd say my intended choice of wording encompasses those. I'd describe some of the comments I've read as a strong distaste toward or desire to avoid video functions on a DSLR (let alone actually using those functions). I think we can also safely say that nausea might describe the feeling when people watch a video shot with digital image stabilization (as opposed to the mechanical SR in the K5 series).....that was only half joking. (•;
As for capitalizing the word "aversion". It was for emphasis. If I were yelling I'd do the whole sentence in caps.

Steve, ignore the above if it annoys you too much and just accept my thanks for you congratulating me on my son. Children ARE a blessing and I'm blessed that he's our third. Sometimes too many blessings at once is exhausting. (3˝yr old daughter, 2yr old daughter, and now my newborn son!) It's a good exhaustion.

Norm, you didn't happen to teach in a college did you?
