I'm fairly new to video although I've had to do a very small element of videoing at work and it is something I'm interested in persuing as a hobby.
I notice a lot of people seem to use DSLRs to shoot video rather than a specific video camera. Could somebody tell me why? I don't understand how a DSLR, whose primary use (and design?) has been for still photography, can provide a quality video to match that of expensive video equipment.
Surely a video camera has way more to offer in terms of functionality and settings than a DSLR?
Please feel free to tell me if I'm wrong!
