Well that's nice. What does that have to do with anything????

because you started it.

A person CANNOT operate this single-handedly (period).

Easily! (period)

It requires off-board sound, a focus-puller, and whatever else. My dedicated TM-700 doesn't require any of those things and it performs excellently.

Everybody can handle a consumer cam. DSLR-Video needs a few skills.

I guess it's sort of like trying to make a boat-car. You either need a boat or a car; because the boat-car thing is just a funny novelty.

There is even a boat-tank and very useful. The M-113

I suppose it's poop if you don't also have the supporting tools and required technique. Comparing a Handycam to a DSLR just isn't an apples-to-apples comparison. Yes, movie-making tools are expensive. I shoot for a broadcast TV network. Each of our packages has two lenses: a long zoom and a wide-angle zoom, costing about $36,000 each (the cameras themselves cost about $70,000 each). Our tripods alone, cost over $8,000 each.
