In addition to point-and-shoots and camcorders, Sony Alpha DSLRs to do video

Looks like Sony is pulling out all the stops in its imaging department. Not only are we getting some hot new interchangeable lens compacts, but also a sweet camcorder with the same system — and now we hear what any of us could have guessed: that the next Alpha DSLRs will also do video.

Paul Genge of Sony UK has confirmed that an improved processor will allow the next series of Alphas to shoot video, although he didn’t mention resolution, framerate, codec, or anything like that. Sounds good — of course, anything less than this and they would have been trampled by pretty much every other DSLR out there.
