nagar, thanks for your help. Please don't be horrified by a small mis-speaking in your post. Yes, there is a world of difference between video and still. And that is exactly how my thinking seems to be changing.

What I actually meant was, that since I'm often compelled to take 20 or 30 rapid shots of one bit of action or one scene, maybe I should be thinking in terms of shooting video, not only a still camera.

Thanks again nagar!
