future pro sports/events photographer
Dec 1, 2009

I am holiday shopping for someone who wants to become a sports/wedding/events photographer.

Should I buy an hd video camcorder and DSLR, or just a DSLR with hd video? How useful is video out there in the field?

My friend is looking into getting into wedding photography/videography sports/events photography/videogrpahy and this will be their present.

Can any of the DSLR cameras shoot both stills and video at the same time? Or if one chooses to shoot stills, must one stop shooting hd video?

With hd video camcorders available for around $500, I might just buy both an hd video camcorder and a DSLR.

I have a few thousand to spend for them.

Any insights on this?

Which hd video camcorder and/or dslr would you buy?

Isn't the hdvideo camcorder easier to use for video/have better audio controls?

Thanks for your feedback!
