Hi KostasPlatis – for shooting sports video, you probably want fast video autofocus, slow motion capability, a power zoom and decent control over your depth of field.

 

You can get those features on a number of cameras starting at about $1000, but none of them are DSLRs.  Here are a few examples:

 

Superzoom:

 

Less than $900 Panasonic FZ1000 – this camera has a relatively large sensor (1 inch) for depth of field control, 1080/120fps slow motion, a power zoom and fast video autofocus

 

 

Here is what this camera can do on the football field at 120fps:

 

 

 

 

 

 

DSLM (mirrorless):

 

$1698 Panasonic GH4 plus Panasonic 45-175mm power zoom for less than $400  – this combination will give you a fairly large sensor (4/3 inches), 1080/96fps slow motion, a power zoom and fast video autofocus

 

 

Here is what this camera can do on the football field at 96fps:

Large sensor camcorder:

 

$6555 (on sale) Sony NEX-FS700 with 18-200 power zoom lens – cinema sized Super 35mm sensor, slow motion up to 1080/240fps, a power zoom and fast autofocus.

Hope this is helpful!
