    The sensors in the camcorders, especially consumer ones, tend to be positively tiny v SLRs. Then the lenses you can get for the Dslrs are amazing v. the built in camcorder ones. The low light capability of that canon T1i with a cheapy 50mm f1.8 lens, well let's just say wow.

    They don't take up any more memory on a DSLR than they would on a modern HD camcorder so that's not really such an issue any more.

    Not that it's all rosy, some things like autofocus during filming tend to be better on the camcorders but for quality of video, you'd have to pay way more than what you'd pay for that canon before you came anywhere close with a camcorder.
    yeah you are arent ya

    thats a good point didnt think of that.....but you cant get 30-40gb memory sticks yet can you like a camcorder would be good to see the difference tho

    Sure you can! The largest compact flash cards are 64GB :) although yeah, 32 is more common at the moment perhaps.

    It just isn't going to be a problem though. I think the cards are cheap enough now that you can just easily swap one out and put another in. Some of the camcorders with internal drives dont have additional memory slots so once that 40GB is filled you HAVE to copy it all to your computer. At least with the canon you can buy another compact flash card and carry on shooting.

    Some of the videos around the web from these cameras is simply amazing. I really didn't expect great things but I'm pretty impressed

    good point! we don't have a hd camcorder so hadn't thought of the downloading problem. How much recording time would you get on a 32gb then?

    cool didnt know that, got to be better than a cam then.

    thats why i wouldnt buy a hdd cam and the dvd format and stuck with the tapes as i can keep them for backup or just make different videoes with the same footage :)

    about 96 minutes, so over an hour and half of high definition 1080p video (or more if you wanted lower quality video)

    New Canon 7D Video Vienna is not Beijing | Cinesky

    Here's a sample video from one of these canon cams. I Dont know if it'll impress you or not, but it impresses me.

    Taken without loads of video lights around the place, just with a digital SLR around vienna.

    Look at the darkness of the scenes and think what your camcorder would make of it. I know mine would be all noisy and either grey or green night time mode would probably want to kick in. See how the canon HD video preserves the colours even in that low light? The definition of the video and the sharpness of the whole scene?

    On a normal consumer camcorder pretty much everything is in focus but when you watch a movie, you get that lovely shallow depth of field where the subject is sharp and in focus but the background is nicely blurry. It really makes a difference between something looking pro and something looking like a cheapy cam. Notice the lovely effects in this video all because of the availability of large aperture lenses like say 50mm 1.8 (about 60quid) and the larger sensor.
