This was discussed ad nauseum on this forum when the specs for the D800 were released. However it is simple economics. As a still camera only the appeal of the D800 is rather limited. As video is added the appeal to a MUCH larger audience comes into play. Particularly when that audience sees something the price of a D800 is a tiny sum. High end video cameras are still in the $40k-$100k range and their primes are in the $20-30k range. That audience buys these cameras by the dozen. By having a much more broad audience Nikon is able to spread costs a lot more thinly and still make handsome profits.

My hands are not that steady. I use basic techniques I learned 25+ years ago and they serve me well.
