    I like the d90's video capability. I didn't get the camera for it, but I like it. It was an extra for me. One I use for family stuff, I don't use the d90 video professionally. One, because I am a photographer, not a videographer - soon I will be both, just learning videography. Two, it is good (not HD enough for high end weddings) but I don't think that video featured DSLR's are going to become a standard feature in all DSLR's - just some of them, the higher end ones.

    I must admit that I am drooling over the Canon 5D Marko II and think the video feature is really interesting. I think it will come in SUPER handy to start video podcasts.

    I know 2 people that have the camera for under 2 weeks and I'm waiting for those personal reviews despite all the others I've read.

    What can I say...I have no loyalty.
    I shot nikon on film for 20 years, then switched to canon when I went digital. Most days I don't regret it.

    Just to say something real quick about that. Umm... you couldn't really do vidcasts at that quality. You are probably better off getting a d90 (wink!). You can shoot 20 minute videos at the mid setting, which is still pretty dang close to dvd quality. 1.5 minutes of video at the high setting took something like 100 meg. 720i, more than enough for a video podcast.

    On a side note, I wouldn't turn a Canon 5D Marko II down if someone offered one to me. My next camera is a D700 or a D3 anyway... no Canon for me, not now that I have a bunch of cool lenses for the Nikon.

    I am a Nikon shooter but have to admit, I am very interested in the 5d II too, not because of the video capability, but as a dslr. My next camera might be the d90 (although I am looking very hard at the d300) because it is a good dslr, but I am very curious about the video capabilities and would very much like to play around with it.

    I can think of times when video would come in handy. I am primarily a stills photographer but I'd like the ability to take video. As long as the stills side of the equation didn't suffer from the addition of video, I think It is a good feature to have. I have an older digital camcorder but don't take it with me as much as the dslr because I can't use 2 devices at the same time. A picture may say a thousand words, but sometimes that is not enough to tell the whole story.

    The big problem I can see (right now) is that the dslr is not ergonomically designed as a video camera and its physical operation can be awkward, resulting in some bad videos. I think amateurs like me would like the ability to capture video, but might get turned off by it once they see how hard (or maybe how expensive it could be) to get some decent video from these cameras.

    Default Panasonic DMC-GH1 brief hands-on

    "But unlike recent DSLRs which have offered video capability, the GH1 is capable of continuous autofocus in movie mode using its purpose-designed contrast-detect AF system; this should make it a far more usable option for users looking for a fully functional stills/video hybrid."

    It' not a DSLR, but clearly a welcome innovation.

    Do you think it's a great feature to explore? Or could you care less about video - stills is the only thing that interests you?

    For me - it's *definitely* a useful tool that I could use, being that home video cameras have such poor crappy video quality...
    I'd really rather if the manufacturers of DSLRs concentrate on still photography. I think that adding video will make an SLR go up in price. I have a very nice video camera with built in HD for video. I doubt I'd ever use the option if it was on a DSLR. I never used the option on past none DSLR cameras when it was available.
