    “should I save up for a camcorder.”

    Yes, save up for a camcorder.

    “anyone know what the options are for taking professional videos?”

    A good option would be to hire a professional videographer.


    Actually, there are mirrorless cameras that are better than standard camcorders because of larger sensors and choice of lenses. A used Sony A6300 with a 35 or 50mm prime lens would be a good choice or Canon M50. If you want to get best results a separate sound recording device would give you much better results.


    I have an eotech red dot that’s great to shoot with, the perst-3 Russian laser is a great system @night as well.

    Fun fact, the only legal way to get a class-3 laser in the states is to order russian.


    Lostspark, I looked up eotech red dot as I never heard of such a camera. It’s a weapon sight, why would you recommend it as a camera to shoot pro video?


    Btw, I don’t understand these pro video and photography questions. People shoot a question and run off, no thanks for those who responded, no clarifications needed etc. I stopped answering these questions as I think they are troll threads.

    Troll maybe, bored teen more likely on these types of threads


    This would be a great chance for Wolf to make a re-entry


    Wolf is too busy programming databases.


    Well, here I am.

    To be honest, I don’t have a great deal of experience in shooting video, as 99.99% (or more) of what I shoot is stills.

    That being said, I’ve seen some very nice videos that were shot using DSLRs. It certainly could be done, but I’d consult with someone who actually works in this area before committing to an expensive camera and/or lenses.
