Not at all. DSLR cameras don’t shoot good video. You can look it up yourself. If you don’t want to look it up, you see them all on the camera review section of your local video store. So…no.
I know people who know what they are doing with their DSLR cameras and can make decent video. Some are professionals who have never tried taking a video before and still manage to deliver a professional looking and sound video. They might not use a flash because it’s difficult. One thing that’s really important to them is to understand how their cameras are set up, and their flash settings.
I would recommend that anyone who doesn’t have an experience of shooting a video with a DSLR shoot a video of themselves doing something you’d never do with your standard DSLR, and post that to an image share site. (I’d love to see you do this on Instagram.)
The beauty of images sharing is that you can see your subject and their gear at the same time, which gives you the tools to get a real photo. You also have the ability to add commentary to your video that will tell why you’re not getting the results you’re paying for while doing the other things you do with a video camera. Just ask any DSLR fan who wants to share images of their gear. Ask questions you could use. It’s awesome being able to share images with a crowd.
There are many cameras that shoot good photos, yet still cost a fortune to shoot good video. They’ll tell you that video can take up to 6,000 ISO, but a DSLR won’t ever do that. Yes, they say you need a professional tripod for DSLR video. The answer is no. All DSLR tripod arms are designed to allow you to use your DSLR or other camera that shoots video.
If you want to get into film-making and have more than 3 rolls of film, a $15 tripod will get you more than enough to make a 20mm roll without going broke.
So in closing, if you want to take good video with your DSLR, keep reading.
