I have an old camcorder, but the video quality is really bad. I may be doing some film work in the near future, and I’ve thought about purchasing a new camcorder. But do people still use camcorders, or do they just use DSLR cameras, which can take both high quality video and high quality photos, as opposed to just video. I know some camcorders can take photos, but the quality is nowhere near what you get from a DSLR.
For an amateur, is it a better options to just purchase a DSLR, or a camcorder?
