I'm looking for an image-stabilized camcorder contained within a Nikon DSLR. But it must be able to record at least 10 minutes of HD video @1080p at a clip, as well as higher MP for stills than the 6MP D70s...
Does such a Nikon D camera exist, and is it going to cost me mucho dinero? If so, perhaps I might be better spending around $600 for a decent Canon or other camcorder?
The D5000 looks appealing, but I think clip is limited to only a few minutes, and @720p, not 1080p. Please help!

Welcome to Nikonians! The longest recording time available on any DSLR is five minutes at maximum at high resolution. Up to 20 minutes at lower resolution depending on the size and speed of the memory card. If you are looking to record high resolution video a camcorder is still the best option. Who knows what the next generation of DSLR's will bring to the table. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Thanks for input. I'm going to pass on upgrading to any DSLR, and stay with my D70s. As to video, and since I don't have kids/grandkids, etc. etc., my needs are limited so the Aiptek A-HD+1080p works okay for now, though I might've been better off with an HVS model.
