The best camera for video shooting? Yes. It’s really that simple.
For this post, I took a trip to Kansai to buy a DSLR and shoot video. I took my Fujisan A99 and shot videos (which is more of a video editor than a video camera) there. Here’s a sample of that trip.
Where I purchased my camera: Kansai
Kansai What I bought: Fujisan A99

Fujisan A99 What I shot: Video (continuous video)
Fujisan B1 How do I use it:
It’s great for stills, but not so good for video. As I just mentioned, it has two modes of video capture, so you have to choose between continuous and picture.
Continuous video means you can record up to four shots of a scene. You have to press a button to take a shot every time. After a couple of shots, you can start or stop recording. It does not support timelapse. It’s also very difficult to change things like ISO during a video and the video frame rate. I found the continuous mode to be quite difficult to use while walking around for example.
Picture mode is for shooting video videos of a scene. You can also record video in continuous mode and edit pictures later. Picture mode is quite easy to use too. In picture mode you have to wait for it to record all the images for this video, which is quite long (30 seconds, I think). You can use your keyboard to select the photo and it will start to shoot the images. When you start this mode, all the pictures will be automatically saved.
I don’t know exactly why they didn’t give this feature a ”
