Re: Some idea of a movie mode is floating about

Actually it would be an absolutely brilliant move by Canon. The 1D Mark IIn is built primarily for the photojournalist market. Check out the newspaper websites in the US which are owned by the biggies. Video, video, video abounds. Most job postings list video as a desired quality for major newspaper photojournalists. A lot of photographers for newspapers also carry video cameras. This trend is only getting stronger, and not going away. It's only a matter of time IMHO before video indeed is incorporated in a Canon professional still camera. And the Gannetts of the world will eat it up.

Apparently Canon have been playing around with it.
I wouldn't imagine most potential buyers would be bothered whether
they have succeeded or not.
Useful for the Indie film makers, I suppose.
