Would you all experienced videographers suggest camcorder for sports (we are looking to try video for water skiing where the subject can accelarate across the wake at close to 60 mph),Cine type camera (C100) for weddings and DSLR for stills. We have a wedding photogaphy businenss (some sports) and for weddings are getting asked 25% of the time if do video, thus were looking into the C100 (since we have plenty of Canon gear) . But we would rather get something that can cover both sports and wedding (seems like you need a tool for each) or do we get one of each. We would only do 4-5 weddings by video a year; but are hoping to grow the sports video (somehow; currently reviewing our business plan for 2015.
Probably not for the waterski idea, where waterproofing suggests gopro type cameras – but for sports, longer lenses are the norm, proper viewfinders and tripods – not really the same kit you'd buy for weddings.
