Now that every camera and phone comes with Video built in is there a need for a sister site concentrating on video?

Video seems to me to be a topic rarely discussed with very few tutorials on techniques of capturing a moving image and then the post processing of it.

It would be nice to have this information in one dedicated site to it.

Any views on this?

First one will be I dont use videoTongueTongue

But would you if you knew what you were doingWink

I didnt know that was there!!Wink

I was thinking of something solely dedicated to video techniques and editing.

Just because a camera has the ability to do both stills and video they are 2 totally separate genres and Im just questioning is there a need for a greater learning portal than is currently available??

Can't quite get my around the fact DSLR's now have video capabilities.......I've a dedicated video camera for that and what's more it works a hell of a lot better and has a far superior definition than the Canon 60d, hence it being one of the reasons I didn't upgrade to the 60d from the 50d, why pay for something I'd only ever use on very rare occasions???

Superior definition, Ade? It will probably have a smaller sensor, that's for sure.

It's very important to a film maker, Ade. As for definition, what you going to choose - 720 or 1080?

I picked up a GF2 body for its hacked video capabilities, all I need now is some decent video editing software Smile

I ain't arguing with you Keith, cuz you'll kill me, but as you say anything more than 1920 x 1080 is a waste anyway, but I bet my Canon video will out perform an ordinary DSLR video every day of the week, it's just a shame I don't use it as much as I should but I came over all bi-polar one day and had to have it, like the prat I am Wink

I bought my first and only DSLR, a Fuji S3 Pro in about 2006 and I was stunned to find it didn't have video. Both the bridge cameras I had previously had video ( Fuji S5000 and S7000) and I had just assumed my DSLR would also have video. Now they all have it. Any time I want to shoot video I have to use my camcorder, so I faff about with 2 different cameras. It would be nice to not have to faff! Can anyone tell me though, do DSLRs with video have the capability of capturing in 16:9 format?

Sony Dslrs can or at least they could. The Olympus EPs. The Panasonics and the Lumix range.
