I Wayan Pica: I'll wait for the upgraded version, lets say D4z, with strip-out video capabilities...

Maybe you should try it? What has better video quality, a $1000 video camera or a $1000 DSLR? Why carry 2 devices?

Eric Peltzer: Firstly, I have a Canon 5D II and a Canon HD video camcorder. The 5N in most ways is better than either or both. I've shot hours of video with the 5N, reviewed it closely, never got a single click. So last night I took it out and shook it pretty vigorously on video, and yeah, I can hear clicks. The picture doing this is not even close to usable, a shaky incomprehensible mess.

I take a lot of video & try pretty hard to keep the camera steady. But I do walk around with it & film the kids etc. On one shot my kids were in a push car tearing around the driveway in circles. I sat in the center & panned the camera halfway around, then quickly panned the camera in the other direction to pick them up circling around again, repeat. No clicking. So, again, it's a violent shake that produces this phenomenon.

But, from the sound of it there may be some cameras where the problem is worse than mine and occurs at lower accelerations. For me it's completely a non-issue. Awesome camera.

I hadn't shot any video with my 5n, but when I read there was clicking issues I took it out for a quick test. Mine clicks when I slowly move it from horizontal to vertical or do anything faster then a slow pan shot. Hopefully the repair / fix will correct the issue. Sounds like some cameras are better than others...
