Re: Would you be OK with XQD slot instead of CF, Jim?


I get that customers of some pros want video, but I DON'T get how well a single camera can do both, particularly one designed to be, first and foremost, a stills camera. And let's face it, any camera designed in the form of an SLR like we're talking about here is designed for stills primarily. I have a Sony video camera provided by my employer with the ability to take still images, as well. However, those still images are rather low quality, and they certainly would not be useful for demanding customers. Granted, something like you are talking about would probably have better quality for the still images, but I still think you should use the appropriate tool for the job.
