Hello Drahga, welcome! People shoot video on a DSLR or M43 (Micro 4/3rds) cameras because you would have to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a video camera with interchangeable lenses that can achieve such shallow depth of field or narrow area of focus.
But compared to pro video cameras, DSLR/M43’s crutch is sound, their pre-amps are noisy and they don’t come with really nice mics. So to get pro audio, you need a pre-amp or separate field recorder synced in post with Plural Eyes.
In my opinion, the Juicedlink Riggy Assist or Riggy Micro is currently the best and smallest preamp, and which model you get depends on which camera you’re using. (Some need automatic gain control disabled, and some don’t have audio level meters.)
If you’re thinking about getting a DSLR or M43 for video, I can give some suggestions based on your budget.
Full frame sensor DSLRs are ideal for best low-light recording. The Canon 5Dmkii, 5Dmkiii, 6D and Nikon D800 are ideal. Canon’s crop-sensor cameras do well too, and some record auto-focus (M43’s advantage, the Canon T4i, T5i, upcoming 70D)
If you will be shooting kids or subjects that come/go at you quickly, you might want the option of auto-focus video. The Lumix and Canon’s STM lenses auto-focus silently (so the mic doesn’t pick it up.)
One last advantage of M43 is there is no mirror, so the bodies can be small. There are a lot of smaller (almost point-and-shoot-sized) interchangeable lens Micro 43rds cameras on the market.
