Sony: Video recording will be a necessity in dSLRs

Pretty self-explanatory huh?

I told you guys Sony would cater for the market's needs! And this is THE RESULTS of their marketing survey! Of coz, i'm glad that they've decided to include video in a way that is as useful as the handycam.

"Currently none of the video-equipped dSLRs in the market can offer an intuitive autofocus (AF) function (you have to press a button to engage AF while recording), and this is a challenge for Sony. Katsumoto told CNET Asia the company's Handycam camcorders have long established themselves with consumers. If the firm should decide to make a dSLR with movie capture feature, it will want to make this as good as its Handycam. :

"According to Katsumoto, the Alpha lineup currently dominates 12 percent of the entry-level dSLR market, which makes up 80 percent of the overall dSLR industry. As more shutterbugs ditch point-and-shoots for dSLRs, Sony will continue to develop its products to grow with these photographers. "

So you see, Sony is gonna cater for the needs of these entry level photographers (who probably want video more than minolta's die-hard fans)
