Where are my DSLR video shooters?! Here is a great video by DSLR Video Shooter highlighting two options for DSLR video shooters.
I personally use the 5D Mark 3 for almost everything on The Average Nobodies YouTube Page.
PS- if you are looking for any cheap DSLR monitoring/controlling options check out this video I did on using a Nexus 7 as your monitor.
The great thing about shooting video with a DSLR is that you get great looking footage. The bad thing? They are not meant to do so. One way to help me shoot video on my 5D MKIII was connecting my Nexus 7 tablet to the camera and using the app ‘DSLR Controller’. In case anyone was curious on how to connect a Nexus 7 to your DSLR rig, here is a custom mount I built myself. Build cost was about $25 (including app price). A link to everything I bought is in the video description and below
