I want to sell my d300 and get a used low mileage d300s to play with the video capabilities. I have taken some videos with my iPhone 4 and the mJPEG video looks pretty good so i would think the d300s shold be at least as good as the iphone. Thoughts, comments?

The video limit is, I think, only 5 minutes on the D300s. Have you thought of getting a D7000? Video clip limit is 20 minutes there.

Get the D300S if you still need the better AF and metal chassis. If not I'd get the D7000. I stuck to the D300S because I like the dual card slots and actually use the video when doing telephoto work.

D300s is able to capture 20mins of video at a time.
If you need the video capabilities but don't need the fast AF on stills, get the D7000 for video quality (1080p) at 24fps (32fps only @ 720p I think).
The D7000 has dual SD slots actually.
