DSLR killed the video star?

We continue with the video mini-theme. Through Ryan Brenizer's blog, we learn of a new in-depth article at Wired looking at the impact DSLR-Video is having in the world of moving pictures, and cite specific examples.

It is interesting to note that a few years ago, hybridization/convergence was perhaps seen by some as more likely to go the other direction - advanced video cameras "eating" away at still cameras, but it looks like the tide is now perhaps heading in the opposite direction. Perhaps it was the pretty diagrams and loud barking of RED that got the DSLR world to take video very seriously and make it a priority. And the DSLR world managed to deliver actual products a whole lot faster than RED. We'd love to see RED succeed and make the market more diverse and competitive, but you can't take actual pictures using just the exciting new diagrams they publish every few months.
