Films are endangered species today. And the digital revolution has spread from cameras to camcorders. Tapes are almost gone now (other than for the pros), hard-disk models emerged and soon disappearing, some brands have gone into only producing solid-state medium models (eg SD / SDHC / memory stick ).
Now some mid-range DSLR can record HD videos. With one price the hobbyists can kill two birds with one stone.
But the vise-versa can't be the same for camcorder can't give the control and flexibilities of a camera.
Those who have used DSLR to take HD videos please share: will you buy another camcorder?
