As you may have read in previous posts, I’m looking for a compact camera with the capacility of shooting HD video. My current video camera does not support HD (it’s 7 years old), it is huge compared to modern standards and it’s video only (I don’t consider it’s 1.2MP photo function useful in any way).
So the purchase of a camera such as the Panasonic GF1 seemed an obvious choice. I’m totally satisfied with my Nikon D700 and not ‘in the market’ for a to be released successor that will definitely be capable of shooting HD video.
Recent video samples I’ve seen demonstrate what modern DSLR’s are capable of. So I’m in doubt now. Shall I join the crowds desperately looking forward to the D700s, D800, D900 or whatever the successor of the D700 will be named?
