DSLR video quality with Camcorder ease?
We all know how capable and customizable 35mm dslr are;
but we also know that it requires time to set up, and specially time
and an eagle eye to focus.
A camcorder such as a Sony AX100 4k can be turned on and be used.
My D800 needs to be dial in to the proper settings and I have to hope
for two things, that my kids wonâ€™t move out of focus or that I need to zoom.
I tried follow focuses, but nothing compares to a camcorder AF,
because of it small sensor, power zoom and large dof.
But my D800 will give me beautiful end results, almost like a film from
How can I find everting I like from a DSLR and a camcorder all in one?
Is there such a camera? I had an NEX-FS100 and it did come close to my
D800, but it was such an awkward camera to hold, and it was heavy too!
I was given many recommendations like the gh4, but it still the same thing
Than my D800, manual AF. (dslr AF-C donâ€™t work)
The camera/camcorder Iâ€™m looking for will be used for family/kids videos, grab and go.
I had a Panasonic FZ1000 4k, got rid of it within a week, I didnâ€™t like the form factor.
Iâ€™m looking for a solution around $1500, willing go to $2000 if is that much better.
Cameras Iâ€™ve been reading about are: Sony PMW-F3 (used) Sony AX53, AX100 and X70
Maybe a Sony A7S (if it can take a power zoom like the SEL 18-200 from FS100)
Thank you for reading!

Have you tried looking at the Canon XC-10?

I did! And I really liked it, but then I saw the prices on the cfast cards and it made me stopped looking at it. I also read that the sad slot it’s only for hd?
