New Still Cameras With Video Support
A bunch of new cameras have appeared that add HD video - unfortunately, it's 720p video, but that's not necessarily bad.

Olympus jumps in with the E-5 DSLR, Samsung has the "mirrorless" NX100 and Canon has the G12. I'm not sure I'd buy any of them just to do video, or even to upgrade an existing camera if you have a previous version. Canon also announced the SX30IS, but previous versions of that camera already supported video.
