Jason, I agree but what we do in the corporate video world isn't about making art, no matter how much we might want it to be. It's ultimately about solving a clients communications problems within a given set of circumstances, circumstances which often require a smooth zoom.

I'm excited by the creative visual options many of these new lower cost, thin DOF-capable cameras can deliver and equally excited that some clients see the value in this look. But the simple truth (for me) is that many of my clients and much of my local market is made up of very small businesses who place less value of video as a creative art form and more emphasis on cost, efficiency, etc.

I'm simply interested in learning whether or not a camera or combination of camera+lens+DOF adapter/gadget can bring the best of both worlds - a servo zoom for everyday run-and-gun work and shallow DOF for more the creative projects.
