How important is ease of use? A camcorder will be a lot easier to use than a DSLR camera, but it won't have the short depth of field that the DSLR will have. A DSLR is capable of high quality video, but it will take lots of experience to get it.
I'm looking to buy a camera or camcorder and here are my preferences:
Size/weight does not matter to me.
Look/design does not matter to me.
Price matters i.e. it should be cheap around $600-$700
MAIN THING: Video quality matters!!! I want exceptional video quality.
ANOTHER VERY IMPORTANT FACTOR: I want to have the Depth of field look in my videos i.e. I should be focused and my background should not be!
It should take averagely nice photos.
Please help me out as I've googled to the extent of madness!
Thanks in advance.
