p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Video cam vs DSLR with Video capbilities


I have two boys who play football and Lacrosse. I currently have a little Sony HD camcorder to film their games and eventually do a highlight video... but I am not happy with the quality of the videos and wanted to step it up. My question is this: Which would be better a Cannon XA20 Camcorder or a DSLR with Video capabilities like the Cannon D70 with a zoom lens, for what I am filming?
Note: for both sports, I film on a tripod from on top of the press box in the stadium...

Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks

You are still far better off using a dedicated video camera. While the technology in the 70D is very promising and revolutionary for video, it's not quite ready for prime time sports videography just yet. The ergonomics and AF of dedicated video cameras are far superior, for now at least.

The following reviews might be helpful.

Do you want a real race car or a car that goes fast?
