If you've been filming for any length of time with a mirrorless or DSLR camera, you may finally be ready to make the jump over to a dedicated professional camcorder. Simon Chmiewliski looks at the advantages in real world usage.

If you've been around the block, so to speak, in the video world, you'll have strong opinions that only a dedicated video camera will do for the purpose. But it is easy to forget that there is a whole generation of video producers who have only ever known mirrorless and DSLR cameras as their go to weapon of choice when it comes to producing moving images.

Some of them may have never even used a decent professional dedicated video camera before. But what is certain is that there is a lot of talent out there thst is quickly outgrowing their stills cameras and could really do with making the leap and purchasing a full blown professional camcorder.

In this weeks video Simon Chmiewliski discusses his experiences making the move from mirrorless and DSLR cameras to Canon's new entry level cinema offering, the C200, which we reviewed late last year.

Simon takes a look at the many advantages he has found when making the move to a dedicated camcorder such as the C200. While such features may be a case of teaching grannies to suck eggs to the average jaded professional, for people who are newer to the industry they may not be fully aware of the features that they are missing out on.
