Great question

This video fascination in the SLR chassis has stirred in mind for some time now. Also slightly baffling is the point you brought up. Why aren’t the masses just getting two specialty dedicated devices that in theory should be able to perform their respective jobs better? Also I find it strange that the manufactures haven’t tried to extract more profits from the two device idea.

For me, its different. I will never be a great video shooter. But it may be nice to have capability for the occasional video. A dedicated video camera would just mean additional weight and another item to worry about on a trip. But I always carry my SLR for stills - so the video capability is a boon provided it does not compromise still photo capability.
