You're not really going to see a difference in video between the 800/800e. They do produce great video though, I'd go with the cheaper 800.

If you're planning on adding video you'll need a heck of a lot more than one extra camera. That being said, they're just about equal in terms of video performance, though there's a little more moire-ing from the 800e (but it's also sharper)

Why would you go Nikon for video?

In our recent shoots we used Nikon D800 and all I can say is that it rocks. From what I know is that since D800e is prone to moire more then 800 due to not having a filter. D800 video burnt on BD gives excellent HD video. I am vey happy with D800 not sure if I would ever want 800e.

Check out some recent work at http://www.nynjphoto.com/category/videos/

Hope this helps.

Why not? Clean HDMI out and AIS lenses etc just because canon was first there is no reason to switch.

Probably because he already owns Nikon. I'm guessing, but that's the obvious answer.

I too am trying to add short video clips to my wedding slideshows .What I would like to know is...how do people adapt to manual focusing ( eg. On 5d mk2 or mk3? ) For wedding situations. I have been experimenting but find it so hard to follow focus when the subject is moving eg simple situation...bride walking down the isle. With a dedicated video cam no problem, but with dslr it takes quite a bit of skill. I have tried the lcdvf hood type viewfinder cover , I have seen the dslr "rigs" with gear focus, external screens etc . But that is a lot of expense. Does everybody realise that video with a dslr is quite different from using a camcorder?

With manual focus you're going to want to avoid tracking movement that is travelling towards you. It takes pro-level skill to keep that smooth. You figure out how to shoot it well without relying on that particular approach.
