New member post here, so thanks for all the info on the website and the reviews which have been helpful when choosing cameras over the last few years, but I'm a bit stuck with a slight issue at the moment so any feedback appreciated...
My query is:
Do most DSLRs have issues with zooming during filming video, or does this vary between manufacturers or lens types to some degree? as some test footage I've seen looks jerky when zooming.
Basically, I'm interested in buying a mid-range SLR which is fast, compact with good HD video and an APS sized sensor. So I've been looking at the Sony a33/a55 and Canons up to 60D level.
I know some DSLRs can have overheating issues/short clip lengths, but I tend to shoot short clips and then stitch them together afterwards so this isn't really a major concern.
ps. I shoot about 75% stills to 25% video using compacts & superzooms at present and have used 35mm film SLRs over time but not DSLRs as yet. I'm not really interested in camcorders because of the small sensors & still image quality constraints etc..
