Alex Notpro: Comparing videos to photos is like comparing phone calls to emails. They are not interchangeable. Videos and phone calls are for people who are not very busy. Perhaps high unemployment has caused a momentary spike in the popularity of video?
No kidding. But in the context of the article, newspapers are dying and moving to the "web". These sites would rather pay for VIDEO, not stills. So yeah, there's no comparing the two technically, other than the fact that if Dan Chung refused to shoot video and only shot stills, he couldn't make a living of it in a few years. That's the point. It's especially poignant coming from an award winning still photo-journalist.
