To get technical, digital video is dead. Canon did it with a tiny little
camera that had horrible quality. Video is good for moving pictures, not
still (for another 5 years at least according to Canon). Still digital
(what we're really talking about) is different than digital video (NTSC TV
standard image - yuck!).

And...the sky is not falling. It's just getting cooler.
