"Small, hi pixel count video camera will put DSLRs out of business."

Q. Where are we going to find the time to cull the dross?

I found out that my GH2 working in High Burst mode would take 40 frames a second. Great for tennis. You click the shutter when the oponent hits the ball and you get a shot of the ball near (and sometimes actually on) the raquet of the person you have in frame.

But, gosh, the amount of time at the computer junking 38 out of every 40 frames is mind boggling. Add to that all 40 frames when your player misses the ball altogether.

The frame numbers tell the story.
