i think it would depend on how big of a deal the video is to you.. if video is not a huge deal to you, i would get the G11, if it is i would wait... keep in mind, video takes easily 10X the amount of time to edit as photos.....

I'd say that video takes 23.98x to 29.97x the amount of time as photos. smile

I think Mark has gotten the ratio down to as low as 22.37x, but he is a professional.

Dudes, no way.

60 fps overcranking is where it's at.

Video is not a deal killer but the option of 720p is appealing, especially since I don't use a camcorder anymore.

No photo/video post processing for me. I'm not going down that Aperture rabbit hole.

the 5D mk II, the video is 1080p, so i would imagine,the G12 would do 1080p as well.. but this is just speculative thinking....

however with that being said, i would still say the just get the G11 and enjoy it....

I wouldn't assume that a $400 camera will offer the same as a $3k camera.

It's certainly possible, but I wouldn't count on it.

Wasn't the 5D MKII used for season finale of House? Honestly, I couldn't tell the difference on my HD Tivo, it looked great. FMU, the editors loved using it because the post production was much easier to handle.

Yes, it was. I don't know that the editors loved it, but many like the shallow depth of field from the large sensor.

I have a 5DII and a 7D, but to be honest, I haven't done much experimenting with the video as of yet. I want to see what CS5 offers, but haven't installed it yet as I want to ensure there aren't driver issues.

Sorry I haven't been of any help on the main topic... the truth is that I don't really pay attention to what consumer cameras are offering. I know many like the Sonys and Olympus, but I've never read the reports or held one.
