Video functionality on a DSLR is not as simple as on a regular video camera. On a DSLR, the camera won't autofocus and keep tracking focus on a subject that is moving around. It's more of a manual focus process with DSLR video. The average person wanting to record video is MUCH better off using a digital video camera rather than a DSLR, in my opinion.
Appreciate the knowledge. I might have to re-analyze my thinking; the very reason I posted here.
