While the DSLR revolution may no longer be what it once was,Â one thing does remain quite clear âÂ DSLRs and mirrorless cameras still have a very strong foothold in the independent filmmaking world, and they arenât going anywhere any time soon. To some people, this is actually quite surprising as it was largely anticipated that the first wave of large sensor interchangeable lens camcorders (such as the Canon C300 or Sony FS100) signaled the end of an era. But as time has shown us, thatâs just not at all how it played out. DSLRs were initially popular for filmmaking for a few main reasons â price, accessibility, quality, and ease of use. Before the Canon 5D MK II there was virtually no other affordable interchangeable lens camera on the market that could deliver anywhere near the same level of qualityâ¦ So itâs no wonder why the MK II blew up the way it did, and paved the way for so many other camerasÂ to follow suit. But now we are in 2017 and there are an abundance of other options out there on the market. For $1000 you can shoot RAW on a Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera. The Canon C-Series line up has dropped so much in price that in some cases their cameras (for instance the C100) can be purchased for less than the cost of some DSLRs.
