Thanks. Yes I agree that video is easier to capture everything and easier to capture low light action without using expensive fast lenses. And video can capture sounds. But photos can make an image stand out and isolate the memorable moment, with more aesthetics. However, it takes some practice to capture the moments with a camera. On the other hand, editing video is more time consuming and takes up more hard disk space. And photo sharing is still easier than video sharing, though You Tube has made video sharing much easier these days. So what I'm trying to say is that both photo and videos have their strength and weakness, and they complement each other. Most people, including myself, do both. This is a digital camera forum, so I have to give some support to photos.
