    And before any gearheads get their pants in a knot, I'm sure the Nikon (and probably the next Sony) version will change the landscape equally.

    Photos NOT OK to edit

    First thought was "neverrrrrrrr!". After reading the blog... I am partially convinced, but not totally. There may indeed be a new digital revolution where photography and video meld into some kind of a high quality mix, but for me personally, I want a VERY distinct and firm difference in my video and still digital worlds.

    Besides... I want anyone to try to take a video of how they are working with the camera at the same time with the same units... lol.

    One thought does come to me, though... at this price level (~$2700US), the integration of a quality video unit into a digital camera traditionally would mean that there is a sacrifice somewhere. Nothing for nothing is the battle cry of the marketing team. It makes me a little suspicious about what *is* the catch, if there is indeed one. :)
