If you want mainly to take video I suggest a good camcorder. They are hard to beat still.

I've used some pretty decent camcorders & for all around use under reasonably lit conditions they fit the bill. But I haven't seen a camcorder with the flexibility of the D4 & it's low light performance. It is certainly much easier to mess up & get terrible results with the D4, but if you can spend a few moments up front to select the most applicable lens, and settings the D4 can be used to get far superior results.

I've got to imagine the D800 is probably just as effective. Not so sure about the D600 & it's lack of aperture control.
