Does anyone have suggestions for a good camcorder or dslr with video capabilities for 500 to 1000 dollars? I'm looking something with a nice dof and good functionality.

also consider the nex 5 [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjfG78xGfjU[/url] it's between $600 and $650, which is definitely on the lower end of your price range. goes 1080i at 60fps, with AVCHD format. If you'd like me to post some examples with different lenses i would definitely do so.
If you consider the NEX-5, also look at the NEX-C3, and think about if you want to buy the 5 so close to the 5N coming out.
And if you want to waste money on the NEX-5 for video, remember it only records interlaced 60i - which is not 60 frames per second, it's 60 fields. The 550D records 720p at 24, 25/30 and 50/60 (progressive, not interlaced) and 1080p at 24 and 25/30. The progressive video is more filmlike and the 550D gives a much greater degree of control over your video than the NEX.
I have actually been doing a lot of filming with my moms canon t3i I got her for her birthday. My problem with it is the constant manual zoom, while I do enjoy getting full manual control with a camera I feel like its a real hassle to film with the T3i. I'm all for suggestions on how to make filming with it a bit easier though. And trogdon, I would love to see some example footage. Thank you in advance.
would you like moving footage or stationary? because i have some stationary footage currently, but if you'd like me to run around outside and such (demonstrating framerate and autofocusing) i'd be willing to.

oh and if you wait a bit for the Nex 5N, it'll have a 16.2 MP sensor, and take 1080p video instead of 1080i. It'll probably be 650-700 though.
What the 550d can produce: Slow motion - [url]http://vimeo.com/16340475[/url] CGI Bullshit - [url]http://vimeo.com/14852606[/url] Sweet timelapses - [url]http://vimeo.com/20062206[/url] Etc etc

probably not, considering the NEX-C3 has audio in.

I mean if you really do have the $1000 budget, the 550D does take better video and have more creative control, but if you are looking at the lower end of your budget, I'd consider the nex over other cameras in the price range. The footage does look a bit choppy on youtube though because of the video being interlaced and youtube forcing it to be progressive. the Nex 3 takes smoother looking video for youtube, but is only 720p

[QUOTE=cueballv2themax;31612396]hahahahahahahahahaha ahahahaahah hahahahah sorry im laughing at you saying the 550D is interlaced[/QUOTE] I think he meant the NEX-5. actually, I have no idea what he meant it's confusing.

or, as we see here, only offer a small res
[QUOTE=GraniteMouse;31612420]I think he meant the NEX. actually, I have no idea what he meant it's confusing.[/QUOTE] Nope, read the last sentence.
[QUOTE=GraniteMouse;31612420] actually, I have no idea what he meant it's confusing.[/QUOTE] yeah i know CALLING YOU OUT TROGDON
yeah, he meant the NEX-5 looks choppier than the NEX-3. [editline]8th August 2011[/editline] which is why the number is important.
If I'm going to be buying DSLR for video, does anyone know a good tutorial on how to shoot with it?

Probably the free version (or on a cheap fast-render mode) because you see that obnoxiously jumpy morphing effect in high detail stuff like the water.
[QUOTE=TheNoiseExplosion;31612629]If I'm going to be buying DSLR for video, does anyone know a good tutorial on how to shoot with it?[/QUOTE] Their are plenty of tutorials on YouTube on how to shoot video for DSLR's, but this one particularly came to mind.

[QUOTE=B-hazard;31612452]Nope, read the last sentence.[/QUOTE] how is that confusing? I meant that the nex 5 looks choppier than the nex 3 on youtube, the nex 5 was the last thing that i mentioned in the previous sentence, thus meaning that "the footage" was the direct object of the last used noun, which was the nex 5. And looking up the 550 on google I'm getting around an average of $800-950. I was referring to the nex 5 having semi choppy video on youtube because of it running at 1080i, and youtube forcing 1080p, which makes it look choppy. I've looked at videos of both the nex 3 and the nex 5, and as far as youtube goes, the nex 3 looks smoother, but does not take as high res video. I don't understand where i was being dumb there.
you weren't being very clear.
