Re: Is this post serious?

But video has one major advantage. IT MAKES THE CAMREA CHEAPER. Because more people buy it, the camera becomes cheaper, it costs nothing to add. You already have the live view sensor built in, they already have it built into the processor that they already use on the other cameras, and they have the software written for the other cameras (none of which cost a ton in the first place) and as a result some models might sell up to twice as many cameras, which drastically reduces the cost. Remember how the 5D Mk II dropped down to $2,200 while the D700 was still $500 more. It wasn't because of the cost of the parts... it was because they sold far more cameras and brought the cost of the sensor down as a result.

As far as a camera with high speed, just wait 3 years. As I mentioned in my other post, they tick-tock every generation between speed and resolution because only a handful of people upgrade a $3000 camera every 3 years.
