This is first post here. I'm looking forward to buy a camera primarily for the purpose of video. I know, I know you guys are thinking why i'm choosing these two over a HD camcorder. The answer is basically quality, i've search all over youtube and vimeo for test and sample videos and found that none of the HD camcorders come any close to the videos from these two cameras. So can anyone suggest which one of them is better for video? What are the pros and cons of each. And I heard that if you shoot video on a camera, over a period of months the sensor might get burnt out. Is that true? Please help. Thanks.
