Video capable DSLRs will continue to evolve, but mainstream videographers will flock to LSVCs. (Large Sensor Video Cameras), or whatever they're eventually called.
Maybe, but some generalities are very close to true, though there are exceptions to every rule.
It's funny, Videographers seem to like video cameras, actually they seem to love them. Give a video guy a sony with a 2/3 " chip, a viewfinder with peaking, zebras and a fast zoom and he/she is in hog heaven.
Hand the same camera to a film guy and he screams don't make me shoot video, God don't make me shoot video.
Then hand a 5d2 to a film guy with a bunch of Red Rock or Zaguto stuff hanging off of it and he'll say, film's dead man, now just give me a raw file for 3 more stops of range and I'm set.
I think part of it is the previous small video cameras hated low light. But the 5d2, at 2000 iso works. Yea it's kind of smooth, and yea it takes about 5 grand worth of stuff to make it really workable, but one small arri kit and a visit to home depot for some incandesents opens up a world of film making that nobody could get to previously without spending 20 grand in rentals and a call to the teamsters.
Every time I see a new "video" camera my butt tightens because I've been down that road of pdf's that promise but in reality the more high def dedicated video cameras got, the more video like the image looked . . .(IMO).
They grained up, noised up, and pulled focus from the front of the lens to the horizon. Film guys just cringe at 400' of focus, video guys go yea baby that's a sharp image.
Also video cameras at least the two xha1's I have are about as durable as a 7-11 cell phone. You can look at them and parts break off and you live in complete fear that the operator accidently hits auto gain, or doesn't lock in 24p on the menu (though it's a faux 24p). or some other silly little button on the side and wrecks the whole production.
I'd love to see a 24x36 "video" camera made of metal, had a evf that you could look and focus through, had the iso of a 5d2, the build quality of a 1ds3, a 13 stop raw file, but at that stage we're talking about Red, not Panasonic and a 4:3 chip.
Video guys are probably gonna love it. Film guys are still gonna scream "please don't make me shoot video".
P.S. Now once again, IMO, but the one thing Canons have is great skin tones. The best I've seen still or video and the 5d2, 1dMark4 etc. follow that tradition. The first time I used a 1d (not s but just a 1d) and fired it at 10fps, dropped it into the editor and played it I thought yep, this is where motion imagery should go. Just tack on a big honking processor and some storage space, lock that mirror up and let's us shoot.
They're getting closer to this all the time.
