continued merging of still/motion camera

pana_gh1_001The pattern of motion and still graphic world’s merging took yet another step.  One camera, taking both still and motion imagery.  And not those cheesy, 15-second low resolution videos either.  We’re talking HD video, 720/1080p.  The Red camera burst onto the seen a year or so ago and now Panasonic announces their latest release of the DMC-GH1.  Pretty sweet.  Love the idea of taking one camera that can take 12.1 mp size photos and HD video…vs two.  I’m thinking, one bag on planes/trips vs 2….that’s very appealing to me.
