I am staggered by the number of people in this thread who a) imagine that Fujifilm has only one product development elf and if he's busy on video then there can't possibly be anyone available to work on the stills side of things, and b) that video is some dark art that only the broadcasting Illuminati can master.

These views are more than tad silly and in fact, work against the viability of the X-System. As Sal Baker points out above, there are simple things that Fujifilm can do to improve the current video capabilities, without occupying the lone product development elf for more than one lunchtime. And for more advanced video capabilities, the technology and algorithms are common knowledge.

in the medium-term, video is absolutely essential to a viable modern camera system. If that isn't immediately obvious to you then you seriously need to take a walk around outside and meet some humans. Fortunately, we know from interviews with Fujifilm exec's, that they already know that video is very important. There's no need for it to effect improvements in still photography. In fact, as said already, if they don't sort the X-series video out, the cameras will essentially be artificially handicapped in the marketplace.

That sums it up perfectly - I have no idea why anyone owning a Fuji camera would be against improved video capability; it's very short sighted. But hey, some folks don't believe you should make use of those excellent Fuji lenses for video; No, You should go out and buy a dedicated Video camera
