"We have arrived on the 3 year anniversary of DSLR cameras that also have the ability to shoot High Definition video. The flexibility of having a small and inexpensive camera with fantastic battery life that also can use interchangeable lenses has captivated consumers, professionals, and camera manufacturers around the world. Personally I've used these cameras to shoot everything from live events to motion pictures for feature films. With a slew of new cameras coming out in the next few months I find myself looking back at what has worked and what hasn't. I've gone through a whole lot of headaches, frustration, and problem solving to get the material up to snuff for the big screen and dealing with the camera system's "quirks". With this particular article I'd like to share some of my experiences and what I've learned along the way."
