Shooting Stills and Video... successfully!

Dan echoes my thinking that for the small scale stills photojournalist, the use of video can only enhance the product. The difficult part in implementing video along with stills is making sure that one doesn't take away from the other. Ideally, shooting Stills and Video should add up to 1+1=3
Here's a sample comment from an online reader of Dan's interview:
"... But in the context of the article, newspapers are dying and moving to the "web". These sites would rather pay for VIDEO, not stills. So yeah, there's no comparing the two technically, other than the fact that if Dan Chung refused to shoot video and only shot stills, he couldn't make a living of it in a few years. That's the point. It's especially poignant coming from an award winning still photo-journalist."
