Certainly something else than "uncle Jim and his grandchildren at Niagara falls". Nice to see the capacity of the K7 as a video camera, but I still think the story and the pro production would have deserved a pro film equipment as well :-)

Extraordinary. It proves that the k7 (as many other dslrs) video capabilities far exceeds the needs of some amateurs like me.

I think video has now reached a point where these DSLRs offer much of the quality of a high end video camera system at a fraction of the price. A big plus for filmmakers who cannot afford to buy or rent professional equipment but want the added control of the image not possible with consumer camcorders.

Great film

I watched the video, too... I can scarely believe that DSLR can take such a good video... At first, I thought, "This has to be a video of video"... If Pentax can do this, then my video concerns are over... I just need to find a good quality lense if I go with the Pentax K-7

I agree... This was an excellent example, indeed.

Somebody did a great job with the whole production!
Only critique I'd have would be a little better lighting.
