I do think the "shallow depth of field" look is still in vogue, and not just in video. It's also following the practices of the "large chip sensor" still shooters who are commonly using long lenses to limit light, open apertures, and compress depth of field even in outdoor daylight shots that would otherwise be tack sharp in a much wider range - and the propagation of this gear being carried more often is now defining what modern "imaging" looks like to the public in BOTH photos and video.

Here's an example from USA today last week.

I don't remember seeing "publicity" still shots like this all that often before.

And I think it's partially just the result of increasing sensor size geometry.

Remember, the 5d deal "as video camera" is just using a small part of the total sensor area. Imagine what will happen if the still cam processors follow Moores Law and they can eventually read the WHOLE sensor array fast enough for "full frame" motion video.

Those new aesthetic "possibilities" are going to change popular camera looks even farther - like it or not.
