DSLR cameras are not only good for photography but are also increasingly good for videos and short film making. They are both handy in comparison to professional HD video cameras and can capture true to life videos.

Two of this years' Oscar nominated short films were made using Canon DSLR cameras with EOS 7D being the favorite. Directors Danfung Dennis (Hell and Back Again) and Lucy Walker (The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom) say they were never disappointed with their DSLR equipment whether shooting indoors or outdoors.

So a DSLR will not only allow you to capture life like images but may also bring out the narrator in you. Another reason for you to join the DSLR club.
