Well don't delay for too long then for in the not too distant future all cameras will be fitted with this functionality. You can't uninvent (is there shuch a word?) the wheel, and if demand is there, as it obviously is, then all manufacturers will feel obliged to jump on the bandwagon. In a way though, this can be compared to the JPEG v RAW discussion in another thread - just because a camera comes with additional functionality i.e. a RAW capturing capability this doesn't mean you are obliged to use it. I'm presently more than happy with my Canon 40D for stills and my SX1 for stills + the odd movie captures. However, when the time comes to replace the 40D (nearing shutter life expectancy etc) then it will certainly be for a camera that has a video capture capability. That doesn't mean to say I shall be using it every five minutes or so, but it does allow me the
I'm also currently busy, when time permits, editing and compiling a short presentation of my parents recent wedding anniversary which will include both stills and video clips and hopefully it shall be up to this quality
