      If I may suggest: it's the story that sells, not the gear.

      That being said from my own experience: go for a camcorder. And focus on your storytelling.


      Dslr's started to offer video features around 2009/2010. Ever since I've been experimenting on video and finally (after two years) I decided to buy myself a camcorder. Started with the jvc hm150e, now sony nx3. 80% of my video jobs are produced with the camcorder. Only 20% with the dslr. I won't say this won't change, especially when dslr's are evoluating in a way that they become more convenient to handle for video producers also, but for now I'm happy with the decision I've made. 


      I hope this will help you out, making the right decision for your job.

      good luck!
