Digital still cameras on the verge of obsolescence..
I had predicted that in 5-10yrs time that digital cameras (DSLR's etc) would become obsolete and digital video technology would allow for high resolution frame grabs. There would then be no such thing as photographers, just videographers. I was surprised to see it's practically arrived today with Sony announcing a new cmos chip. This chip will allow 6MP frame grabs from video. This will only improve of course. I am curious how this will change the future of still photography when it gets to this point of obtaining all still images from edited video frame grabs.
Note the article even touts this as a good thing:
Professionals will no longer have to concern themselves with one art form over the other; instead, the distinction between still images and video capture are set to blend into one seamless continuum.
