+ - DSLR Movie Mode->

An anonymous reader writes "http://www.photographybay.com/2008/02/17/dslr-movie-mode-patent/

A japanese inventor has filed a patent application with the USPTO that appears to defeat many of the obstacles that have previously stood in the way of making a "movie mode" in DSLRs a reality. Some of the innovations include a mirror that simultaneously transmits and reflects light, two AF functions (fast for still images and slow for movie mode), and a crop function to steady the field of view."
