Well well, looks like the 7D has some competition. A new kid is on the block by the name of the Nikon D3100.

It's true, the Nikon is only 14MP, but it has AF "during" video capture, AND records in full HD, in h.264. Also, it's only $690.oo It has live view, one touch record, and a 3" LCD screen too, just like the Canon. No hassles using Nikon lenses either.

Very, very interesting. I will most definitely be checking into this new camera of Nikon's when I can get my grubby little hands on it.

Your feeling and opinions on this would be most appreciated.

Thanks.

Seems pretty solid! Shoots to h264 instead of avchd. Much better in my opinion. However Canon still has a leg up with high frame rate function.

only thing is that it runs only on 18mbits/s

while the 7d has 48mbit/s i think (correct me if i am wrong)

in the end all that counts is how the picture looks like

here a test/promotion i found - i personally am not a big fan of how the skin turns out but i have the same problem with some canon footage ...
