Holgs: Funnily enough in reading this article, I'll look at the images, but won't bother clicking play - video requires a much more intensive interaction than still images. When I do press play, the odds of watching to the end are probably about 1/10.

I can scan a news story and images in seconds to get the message, whereas with video I'm forced to go at the pace of whoever has made it - usually online this is just too slow.

Journalism distribution channels may have changed, but stills are still very important, possibly more so now than ever before.

If you have the skill to capture a story or message in one frame, that will always be valuable, but you might have to look outside the print media for your income.

Totally agree with Hogs. Well said.
