Great issue of DIGITAL SLR PHOTOGRAPHY magazine from the UK on the stands right now!!! "pros will be eventually expected to deliver web-worthy package of movies and stills."

Check out the very last page where Caroline Wilikinson writes:

“…. HD video is slowly entering the marketplace as standard in DSLRs and pros will be eventually expected to deliver web-worthy package of movies and stills. There are already examples of where stills and moves have been merged. For instance, have you noticed the moving magazine covers or corporate portraits on website? Video is already starting to take the place of pictures on news provider’s websites too. It was always said a picture is worth a thousand words, well now you can get 24 frames-per-second—now that’s a lot more words….

HD video is set to take over commerical and advertising photography as campaigns turn from print to online. And editorial photography is in question too. … People argue that the magazine industry is solid, that most people like the feel of a magazine each month in thr hands…But is the apple ipad just a fad or the start of something far more progressive? Photographers will more than likely have to learn how to shoot multimedia, edit video and more importantly come up with creative solutions that blow the amateur out of the water, if they’re to continue earning incomes as a full-time pro."

I think this is one of those "mutimedia creative solutions that blow the amateur out of the water:"

Imagine you master this!:) Revenues might not double, but they will increase!

Or are we to doubt the experts in the UK published in professional magazines?
"Having regular contact with industry leaders, and many of the UK's professionals, has shown me that the goalposts are already starting to shift for full-time pros--and as a result they have to up their game and change strategy . . . pros will be eventually expected to deliver web-worthy package of movies and stills." --
