Well that's something we can all agree on . I was surprised that canon didn't give more frame rates with the 5dmkll . Maybe d90mkll might be a more obvious source since nikon doesn't have a market to protect .
I think Nikon has a huge opening here for there next model(s), especially is they decide to make something classified as a video camera that shoots great stills, as you are right, they have no market at all to protect.

If this camera did either very sharp 480p (and the JPEGs look very soft at 100%) or nice 720p even at 100fps, it could be a very useful tool. Hopefully, they will keep pushing the tech.
What I meant Stephen, is that something which happens too fast is there in one frame (if at all) and is gone out of frame just 1/60 second later. Like one of the earlier videos I posted with the F350 being over cranked to 60p and played back at 24P. The artillery shell exits the launch tube at such high velocity that you see only a flash, and then nothing. Higher frame rates would allow viewing of the actual lift off.

Frankly, I would opt for the the predecessor with the lower megapixel count because it has even higher frame rate capabilities. I'm talking motion analysis here.

For motion analysis, sure, but except for Mythbusters (greatest show on television), golfers and hobbyists, it still seems like a gimmick until it can shoot at least SD rez at reasonably fast frame rates.

Well, I guess I wasn't really looking at this camera as a high end professional still cam. And yes, I play a lot of golf... hint, hint. We need a 4th for Tuesday morning... you available? :-)
