Re: You use your camera for..

Stills almost all of the time.... out of habit.

I have missed outstanding video of wildlife because I am stupidly habituated to still photography.  I get so excited about PHOTOGRAPHING that deer, moose, BIF, etc that I lose my "focus" and forget that I have a great lil video camera (GH2) already pointed at the scene!!!  Photo equivalent of "buck fever."

Good example:

I was photographing a doe in the bush out of the open door of my stopped truck.  I heard the doe call, BAAAAA, and then saw this pronging deer in front of the truck.  I could've easily hit the video button instead the shutter and captured the beautiful ballet in front of my eyes.  SLOW learner, methinks.

I gotta admit, though that some kidlets really like the above and have a print in their bedrooms.
