The Army is planning to merge the two MOSs in the next year or two. I was at DINFOS last summer and the chief of Public Affairs, Brig. Gen. Frost briefed as much. I'm not sure there is a time frame or at least I am not aware of one.

That would fall under marines. They are the only branch (i can think of) where photographer and videographer are separate MOSs

There used to be. The AF in its' infinite wisdom, merged still photographer with PA journalist. I still have old troops who are now SrNCOs, they tell me it, the merger, hasn't worked. From what imagery I've seen, the quality of AF imagery has gone downhill big time. Military photographers need the freedom and support to be able to go out and document the mission. Not be bogged down doing make work BS under the PA mantra. Photography is an art, to be good at it takes a huge investment in time and training. Trying to make photographers into journalists, and visa versa, is a recipe for failure.
