I couldn't say it better.

Keep in mind:
Video is always shot horizontally - Not everything frames up that way

Video is shot at less then 1/60th of a second - This really restricts the ability to make sharp images, especially of high speed objects.

Composition and motion in video is very different - The decisive moment as rendered in a video clip may not have the impact as it would if captures in a still image were shutter speed, DOF and composition are being considered for a still image - The videographer is focusing on capturing a segment of time, not the decisive moment or most impactful place, view, or light. Because the goals of the photographer and videographer or usually quite different the result are different.

Not to say this merge of technology is not going to have cross over, I don't believe video will kill still photography.
