Movie Mode Poll Results

Movie Mode Poll ResultsLast week’s poll asked whether you wanted to see a movie mode in your DSLR.  The results from the 211 votes (not quite as passionate as the nearly 2000 votes we saw on the New DSLR poll) were pretty even, with the anti-movie mode crowd edging the proponents out by a hair.

Additional commentary is certainly welcomed if you didn’t get a chance to vote.  Just drop a line in the comment field below.
