Multimedia, AV With the explosion of (mostly Canon's) video HD dSLRs in the last few months, purchase decisions for video editors have shifted, depending on which editor can deal with h.264 the best way. Until recently, users had to either use "proxy" files, or transcode to an intermediate format. Then, Adobe's Premiere Pro CS5 came in to change this by being the first video editor to fully utilize nVidia's CUDA technology and achieve real-time playback for Quicktime dSLR, and AVCHD footage.

You will never get from a dSLR like the Canon 550D/T2i the sensitivity of a camcorder like the Panasonic HDC-SD 300 and similar.

This makes a huge difference when for instance shooting your kids indoor with sub-optimal light and they move...

That's plain wrong, the only advantages that dsrl have vs camcorder are:

big sensors with GREAT and never seen before in consumer market light sensitivity

Small DOF

many many expensive lenses 'till you are bankrupt ;)
