Re: is either the D4 or D800 doing well for VIDEO??

I have used the Canon 5D2 and the D800 for video since each were released for documentation purposes. Nothing fancy, no color grading, etc. but useable.

Be prepared to spend at least the camera cost on support equipment alone. Forget the built in mics - you must use a shotgun mic at the very least. If you run a separate sound track with a recorder you can synch using Pluraleyes or similar. You also need another operator.

The resolution and shallow DOF are the reasons I have not used my "proper" video cameras in over 2 years.
