Nearly 100% of cameras now have video capability...
Sep 17, 2012

I think, with the announcement of the new Leica M (24mp CMOS sensor with liveview and video from CMOSIS) that we just passed through the singularity. All smaller than APS (and, I include four thirds in APS) cameras have had video since 2008. But now, it's finally hit all the DSLRs, EVILs, and rangefinders, across the board, with one small exception...

  • Canon - all 6 DSLRs, plus the new EVIL, plus a fixed lens APS

  • Fuji - both EVIL and a fixed lens APS

  • Leica - the M rangefinder, and the X fixed lens APS

  • Nikon - all 6 DSLRs

  • Panasonic - all 5 EVIL

  • Pentax - both DSLRs and the EVIL

  • Samsung - both EVIL

  • Sigma - only the DP1 and SP2 fixed lens APS

  • Sony - all 4 SLT, all 3 EVIL, two fixed lens APS

The only modern, large sensor camera without video is the Sigma SD-1, despite being the first camera maker to use a sensor capable of video (the Foveon in the SD-9) a decade ago, and launching a total of five Foveon DSLRs.

Oh, and the hipster cameras like Hasselblad, Phase One, and Pentax 645, but that's a different discussion.
