DSLR cameras are good for shooting films where you know the maximum distance between your lens and the talent. When you can control all the parameters of a shoot, DSLRs are great. If you’re shooting sports events, you should consider a standard video camera with an attached lens. One of the DSLR’s best assets – shallow depth of field – would be your biggest headache while shooting sports. You would constantly be adjusting focus.
There is a number of really nice entry level video cameras on the market now, some even capture in 4K for less than $1000.
