Flip Video Camera
Taking video requires users to hold the camera stably for longer than still cameras. From that requirement we have video cameras that look and operate differently from still cameras. The ability to capture video has been available in consumer camera for a long time. That capability has begun to appear in pro-sumer DLR digital cameras in 2008.
Is the form of cameras due for a reset? What will be the optimal video+still camera form?

[Update Mar 28, 2009] Say hello to the new video+still hybrid camera from Sony. 🙂
