I just love it how Canon and these people with pre-existing video production skills just act like it does not take much to make these videos. You will spend a fortune getting up to speed making video look and sound like this.

True, but the other side of that point is that for those with the skills and budget this is an incredible bargain compared to the equipment it took otherwise to achieve the film-like quality and use of assorted high quality lenses. For equipment costs of say 10 grand (and skills!) you could make a film-quality movie or documentary - I'm counting 7D, some lenses, quality tripod, mic, plus say a high-end Mac with Final Cut Pro.

I wouldn't be surprised. I could also see electronic picture frames that display short video clips in the near future.

Already here! When I was looking for an EPF for my Mum's birthday I encountered several that would play video clips. Don't forget, there are billions of phones out there that will do video

Don't forget that a video camera gets taxed differently* to a still camera (hence partly why DSLRs don't do long video clips...)

*based on what I've been told by the manager of local store

Will we see the decline of the still camera in a few years if things carry on as they are?
Could you shoot a wedding like this then just grab the frames you want and print them out, no more missed shots?

i wonder

This has already started. A somewhat recent cover of "Esquire" magazine was printed off a video frame grab. But they were using a Red one.

Thanks, but I have a video camera for video - and I use my still camera for stills;)

Post some of your vids please to compare. I'd really like to see how much better your video camera is.

Outstanding video. This is exactly the type of thing I would do if I had the capabilities. 7D is definitely out of my price range right now though.

That is still a pretty big sensor compared to really expensive camcorders. And you cannot easily attach all your lenses to a camcorder either.
Im sold now, damn, I am gonna be broke as.

For an inexpensive 1080dpi camcorder the Canon Vixia hf200 has rave reviews. I'll buy a camcorder for my video purposes.

that's not exactly the target of the video capabilities of these top end SLR's. At least, not from the excitement I've read for it. It's like a dirt cheap entry for indie type film makers. Those with the technical know-how and filming experience can really squeeze a lot out of a $3000 investment in just the camera and a few lenses.

Video in weddings is popular it seems, so for someone who already offers both, this might be a really good way to streamline their equipment while maintaining a very very clean redundancy system. Everything using the same set of lenses and batteries and memory? very nice indeed.

But once again, it's just a possible tool for folks to use. RED has their $3k scarlet that should be hitting the scene soon, which will be another option. The DSLR video has a huge drawback from the amazing quality/effects you can get... recording video ergonomically w/ it is damn awkward IMO, you need to have one of those mounts designed for video recording with an SLR.

i was more impressed in what i saw in terms if image quality and color then the video functions itself.......guess i wasnt clear enough. the video function is cool and all,,but i probably wont use it and i was trying to get the point across about the image quality itself,,,,,didnt mean to start a video war,,in fact i wish videowasnt in cameras,,but it is, and i have come to accept it. im buying a 7d for iso capabilities,the new af system,weather sealing, and all the fricken cool stuff they added to this camera. im going to be digging the auto level system and the flash triggering system. i have a 580 and 2 430 ex's. this camera is going to make my life sweet,,,,,not the video,,,but its there so ill deal with it,,maybe:lol:

that's a good point. another massive learning curve. i think the inclusion of video is great. if you don't want the feature it really doesn't affect you in any way.

It surely must add to the price of the camera.

Beautiful video. Very impressive. Nonetheless, I still have not even tried the video on my camera, so I don't lust after the 7D's "superior" video. I do, however, enjoy watching what talented videographers can do with great equipment. It is really quite amazing.

Here's my take. Love the video and very impressed with the clip. However, many of us capable/good photographers do not have the skills, tools and time to produce such a thing. But I bet we have a nice (HD) video camcorder to take videos for giggles. Me for instance, I'd ask my wife but she's busy most of the time. In fact, we have less than 2hrs of camcorder footage in a year.

Now, with the 5D2 or 7D, I can flip a switch and capture the few minutes like I used to without carrying another gear, backup another device... etc. As long as the video capture is as good, if not better than the camcorder, it's a big win.

i don't think much, and the 5d mark II is cheaper than the 5d.
