Francis Carver: The video that these line-skipping Canikon DSLRs produce is pretty bad, with beaucoup of moire. And even if you output a clean HD signal via HDMI with them, it will still be a line-skipped video that you are recording externally. I would think a $600 Panasonic G3 will record superior video to what one of these Canon or Nikon DSLRs can deliver.
That's what I'd like to see. I've seen lots of tests about these cameras. But I haven't seen any video showing the result of a clean HDMI output.
