    I have not encountered an DSLR which can take videos yet. Even with the D2X it is only 8 frames a second up to 26 shots. That will only last 3 seconds before I have to wait for the buffer to clear before taking another burst.

    I presume your question is asking in the coming future if DSLRs have the ability to take videos since in the current market I don't think there are such cameras that has such features.

    Well, my answer for you is no because for the fact that I don't believe in equipment that has various "multi-tasking" features, i.e., a phone that can take 5mp photos etc.

    A camera is a camera; a videocam is a video cam and a phone is a phone. Sure, in future mobile phones can take 7MP photos but can I think sometimes the fun in photography is not about the pixels but the changing of lenses and the ability to "sculpt" your photo.

    No.

    No.

    My DSLR cannot take video, only photos in Jpeg & Raw format. As far as I know, only Dcompact can capture video shot, but not DSLR. What are you trying to ask?

    Digital compacts and prosumers can record video of up to VGA quality or higher and up to the capacity of the memory card. DSLRs do not have this technology and even if it does, it'll look weird taking videos with an SLR.

    DSLRs are not fast enough lah small compact cameras could take 30/60fps, much more than 8-8.5 fps of the fastest DSLRs.

    30fps is gd enough, equipped with sound. Mine can go up to 25fps so far.
