I have been contemplating to upgrade my video kit from Sony EX1 to a Full Frame DSLR such as Canon or Nikon.
I am tempted mainly for the opportunity to shoot both video and stills with the same cam on the same dive.
Given each art (video/Stills) has its own creative thinking, Does this really work in practice?
Your views are appreciated
I would like to thank Peter for encouraging me to start this thread as he says:
-Mindset: With a DSLR, there is a risk that you'll adopt a mindset of "I'll shoot some clips and then take some photos". Very tempting to exploit the versatility of both options while diving. Isn't this a good thing? Maybe / maybe not. Flipping between these modes could possibly take you out of the "story telling" mindset needed to get the footage to weave together a story back home in the editing suite. Your videos may become moving photos rather than a story. This might not be an issue for you but certainly something that I've heard others say.
