A recent thread comparing the GH3 to the D800 got me wondering how many folks are hybrid shooters, meaning they move back and forth between still photography and video freely within the same shoot. I'm curious what camp folks fall into of the categories listed below:

  1. Almost exclusively a stills shooter
  2. Mostly stills with some video mixed in
  3. Stills and video, captured within the same shoot (i.e. hybrid shooter)
  4. Stills and video, but not on the same shoot...different projects
  5. Mostly video with some stills mixed in
  6. Almost exclusively a video shooter

I will self identify as being in category 1.

It really does depend. I guessIfluctuate between 2 & 4. Mainly stills when I'm being spontaneos, but with planning  video is incorporated into the projects that I shoot.

I must say that after nearly 30 years of photography I was beginning to feel a little jaded, but the advent of hybrid cameras has given me a real creative boost and I'm enjoying doing multi-media very much.
