Why are scopes used in video but not photo?

I've been wondering this for some time now, as I've continued my journey of color correcting and grading.

We are in a digital world of design now where displays are different across users.

Should we keep the scopes, or should graphic artists start adopting them?

I've been a portrait professional (total household income) for 30+ years. A couple years ago started doing some video work also. At first, those scopes were ... odd. Bizarre. Who the heck can decipher THAT stuff?

Read Van Hurkman's book, Hullfish & Fowler's ... worked with this in SpeedGrade ... quickly got to the point I complained vociferously to Adobe about the lack of proper graticules in Sg's scopes! And was thoroughly thrilled to see the new, VASTLY improved ones in CC 2014 when I got to NAB last March. I'd complained so much Dennis Weinmann even remembered my name and saw my name badge and "recognized" me. Quite happily, too ... I was pleased.

Now, when working still images, at times ... I want my scopes! They tell you SO much more than a histogram does ...
