There is an "if" - in case you didn't notice

Pretty self-explanatory huh?

I told you guys Sony would cater for the market's needs!

Needs ? Who needs video in an SLR?

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.

Good for you. Are you sure it won't come at a cost - and one you may not want to pay?

"If the firm should decide to make a dSLR with movie capture feature ..."

There's that " if "! It's such a small, inconspicuous word, yet it can make a world of difference.

"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)

That little "if" I mentioned above could prove you wrong.

Have you even considered the posibility that maybe the manufacturers who include video today will remove it after a while, because customers won't be satisfied with a poorly implemented feature when it's no longer a novelty.
