The End of the Decisive Moment?

With the advent of the hybrid cameras from both Nikon and Canon, the future of photography will no doubt be rewritten.

Sports photography will change dramatically. Will these cameras be banned from future Olympic venues for fear that still photographers will be shooting video? Networks like NBC pay big money for ALL broadcast (video) rights. So what happens when a still photographer is shooting video under the guise or disguise of a camera that looks like a still camera?

My guess is that in the future, the TV guys shooting with high end digital video cameras will ultimately produce still images as a by-product. Why depend on photographers capturing the “decisive moment” when a buyer can scroll through the video files and pick that perfect frame?
