Closed for being about Video..
The tag video states "Questions about video mode in camera equipment."
The Help states "using photographic equipment"
That question has positive upvotes on all of the following statements:
I Also agree with Edd's answer, in that some level of video related questions is acceptable. Particularly those about shooting video with cameras aimed primarily at stills shots.

Check out Brian Storm's project "1976" here. In the digital age, all is fair game! It is limited thinking to hold out against videography...in regards to photography anyway.
Wikipedia seems to think that it doesn't matter if the image is moving or still, it's photography.
I think this is sentiment that Edd alluded to. So the capturing the image part is common ground, and fair game, but asking how to edit video together, or overdub with an audio track isn't.

I think the focus should remain as a stills photography Q&A site, but inevitably there will be people who want to purchase a camera for both, or who consider themselves primarily a stills photographer but who wants to record some video whilst on holiday, for example.
I think what I'm suggesting is that we discourage too many serious, detailed questions specifically about video, but that if a question mentions video we don't automatically close it, and have a [videography] tag for such occasions. Example questions I'm thinking of are things like
Since many DSLRs are now able to record video, I do think the two are related.
I totally agree with this. While I'm generally in favour of keeping this site dedicated to photography rather than video, there certainly is an overlap, and some level of video related questions is definitely acceptable, particularly those about shooting video with DSLRs, compacts and cameras who's primary function is still shooting.

I'd also point out that it is frowned upon by SE to migrate overlapping content to a beta stackexchange.
we don't establish migration paths to a site that is still in its beta period. We don't want to send content from one site to another unless we're certain that the target site is a permanent fixture. There are exceptions to this; moderators can migrate relatively new questions to sites not in the current migration path, but this ability should be used sparingly. A question should be of much better than average quality, and all hope of it being on topic for the current site should be exhausted

And yet I'm being told my Question is not on-topic. That's not really acceptable for someone to read through every bit of your Help and Meta. Confirm that everything they are asking is in fact on-topic and then be told that all of that is out of date. Please reopen my question as it is very clearly on-topic.
2 things - first to whomever downvoted, that's just dumb. This is important and needs to be addressed. If you don't agree with reopening that's fine (though I think you're wrong) but downvoting this as a discussion just says its not a discussion worth having.
Now to address this so-called idea that it's been resolved per Philip in Comments. Here are just a quick few questions to counter that all of which are open, with answers, and high rep members discussing things on them:
- Apply adjustment brush area to video in Lightroom 5.3
- What's a good software to combine all the frames in a video into a photo?
- How much more would a DSLR cost with no time limit on video recording?
- How can I extract still frames from an MPEG video with Photoshop?
- Can my Nikon D70 take video? (special note, the person telling me my question is off-topic and this has been resolved since Video launched in 2011 is the same person who answered this one two months ago)
