Today, we’re going to share our top picks for the best DSLRs for video recording! We found 10 cameras that are perfect for shooting your child’s sports games, important family events, and your latest vacation highlights. There are so many great cameras out there with a variety of cool features that it can be overwhelming to choose! Before we dive into the product reviews, here are a few features to focus on when looking for a camera that shoots video.
Flip Out Screen: A flip out screen can be convenient for a variety of situations. For example, they’re great for shooting videos of you! You can check lighting, focus, color, and more without needing to go back and forth to the camera’s viewfinder!
Capture Resolution: The capture resolution lets you know the quality of the video you are recording. 1080p is the most common HD recording quality, and it produces 1920x1080 pixel video. 4K is a super high-quality HD that produces 3840x2160 pixel video.
Megapixels: In addition to the video capture resolution, we’ll also let you know the megapixels for each camera. Higher megapixels mean higher video and photo quality, whereas lower megapixel cameras can still shoot great video while typically being more budget friendly.
Image Stabilization: If you plan on shooting in low light areas, using a telephoto lens, or worried about your camera shaking while you hold it, image stabilization can help! It helps to minimize vibrations and shaking while shooting for clear, crisp movements!
Lens Size: We’ll let you know what lenses come with each camera, so you can buy the right one for you! Many kits we reviewed come with more than one, which is great if you don’t already have a variety of lenses!
Weight: The weight we’re referring to is the camera and any accessories that may come with it. We found lightweight cameras that are easy to hold for long stretches and all-inclusive kits with everything you need for a professional quality shoot!
Now that you know what DSLRs offer, let’s find the right one for you! We did the research for you and found 10 cameras that shoot beautiful photos and HD video.
