Folks are shooting great documentaries with DSLRs – but I suggested the Panasonic GH3 DSLM over any of the DSLRs because of their 30 minute maximum clip length limitation.
Doc shooters sometimes need to capture long interviews or events in their entirety. Some DSLRs quit after 12 minutes, some quit after 20 – some last until 30. None can match the hours long clip length of the GH3 or a camcorder.
