With digital camera nowadays offer HD video quality & the ability to zoom when taking video.

of cos, HD offers better quality and FPS (or should i say there will not be any lagging)?.
but yes, i will still use my digital camera for recording videos.

as above said. it all depends on the user. For me, i rather have dedicated camcorder and dedicated camera because each have their own features which makes them good in what they do.

Why not?Use a D90 or a 5D MK 2 lah.Bigger sensor would mean better IQ i think...24 FPS is quite OK for smooth movies.:thumbsup:

sometimes I do use it on tours as I don't have a camcorder...
sometimes you need a little video to spice things up...

Uhm.. No Video Cam, so use digi cam.. Infact, I bought this 80IS so I can use as a digi cam, as well as being my baby camera for when DSLR is.. impractical.

Quite acceptable, no?
Quite good.... if you did not tell me it is taken from a digital camera, I would have thought that it is from a Video Camera :)

I have only one problem with using DSLR as video camera.

While taking videos, I cannot take photos.

Same.... :sweat: Otherwise, I prefer the videos from D90 compared to my old Panasonic DV camera.
