Get with the program guys - either shoot stills, or shoot video. I'm waiting for all the crap shot on a stills camera and all the excuses why it hasn't/didn't do what a dedicated Sony or Canon or JVC or RED can do, better, more simply and with no hassles."

Russ, i think you should consider opening your mind to what is possible with these cameras. Shane Hurlbut, who shot Terminator Salvation, is using the 5D/1D to shoot his latest action navy seals feature film for general release. The footage will be printed to 35mm. These cameras are fantastic in low light, they are extremely maneuverable, meaning a new and exciting visual language is possible. They leave a small environmental footprint. They require less crew, less lighting, less grip equipment etc., etc. They are capable of stunning results in the right hands and as Shane has described, "intercut beautifully with 35mm". There are problems of course but in the right hands are they good enough for a 40 foot screen? YES.
