Decent video would be almost a necessity.

The other poster's were correct about almost any camera being okay, but when we watch these events on TV (or wherever) it's always the video. I've seen video from phones being uploaded to YouTube while protests were happening in China, which is really interesting as YouTube is blocked there. I was actually at one of these events, and no one was interested in the stills.

I think however such an event is recorded, it must be in both kinds of media, and at as a high quality as possible - HD video (1080/60 for easy slow motion ability) and RAW (and a fast, wide angle lens) so that stills can be fixed later to correct any problems (such as lighting) presented by a continuously changing situation.
