Still and video convergence has met mixed reviews thus far. We've argued, scratched our heads, and gotten confused. It's certainly uncharted territory, but it's not going to just disappear.
This video is Canon-oriented, but that does not matter. The principles in it are what I want you to see.
And then maybe you'll make up your own mind. I know I have a more open mind after watching it.

Here's another perspective from Bob Krist.
One of the big shifts in magazine publication is the shift to electronic formats. But a flat magazine is just cheaper - the real advantage comes from replacing or supplementing still images with video and even audio. You can expect to see video advertisements in e-magazines.
We're seeing the same thing with internet advertising - the use of video in place of still ads.
My sense is we are at the front end of an explosion in video. And increasingly, pro photographers are expected to deliver video as well as stills.
