The Power of Video

So I have been involved in the multimedia world for the past three years and haven't yet been convinced of the power of the video camera for print journalism until today. I have been playing around with still grabs for the past couple of weeks and am finally putting all my eggs in one basket and going out to shoot an assignment with just and HDV camera. I hopped on the bus with the mayor this morning and within two and a half hours, including shooting time, I was able to produce a product for the paper and the web.

video is fun...and those frame grabs are really nice! But will it ever replace the still camera? ;-)
