(HD) In A Nutshell
For the D-SLR shooter, there are many factors in shooting HD video
For many, the concept of shooting motion pictures with a D-SLR was surprising at first, but in retrospect, it makes perfect sense. Perhaps one of the biggest advantages of shooting video with a D-SLR is using interchangeable lenses, especially fast-aperture primes. (Video camcorders that offer interchangeable lenses, such as the Sony EX3 or the Canon XL H1, retail between $9,000 and $10,000.) Another big advantage in using a D-SLR to shoot video is the camera’s larger sensor. Sensors on video camcorders are typically 1⁄4 to 1/3 inches for CCDs or CMOS sensors compared to larger APS-C or 35mm full-frame-sized sensors that, among other benefits, give a shooter more dynamic range and color tones and far less low-light noise.
