I will be flying from DFW to MIA on Aug 12 on the 777 and it will be my first time on it, so i can remember well the flight i was thinking about taking a video camera with me and filming the landing or take-off. Or maybe taking pictures, would it be allowed on the flight. I know these kinds of threads have been posted a lot but i can't find them.

I dont think they allow you to use video cameras on flights, although the flight attendants are seated at the time of take off and landing, i guess if it is a small camera and you are inconspicuous you probably can get away with it.
I don't think cameras are a problem either. I have taken pics on takeoff and landing post 9-11.
I always wanted to know why we couldn't have any electronics like cd players during landing though. I always listen to CDs on take off though

Probably just an abundance of caution, since some CD players also have other devices (like radios) built into them. Easiest to just do a blanket ban. Same is true of other types of electronic devices that seem strange to ban; with convergence being what it is today, a lot of seemingly innocent devices have a lot of other devices built into them that may cause radio interference on a flight (such as a PDA with a wi-fi card, a laptop with a cellular connection, MP3 player with an FM radio, camera with a bluetooth connection, etc.).
