Is there any Digital SLR Camera out there that supports video recording?


  1. Only Nikon (Or may be Canon, in case there is a winnable alternative)

Just curious, but why only Nikon? Pre-owned lenses and accessories? – Troggy Sep 28 '09 at 20:51
Ya I have a couple from my other cam. Wanted to buy another one. Alright perhaps I can even do with Canon if there is an option.. :) – OrangeRind Sep 28 '09 at 20:53
this question has nothing to do with computers, doesn't belong on – davr Sep 28 '09 at 23:30
Whats it not to do with computers?? Aren't Digital Cameras in close link with computers?? – OrangeRind Sep 29 '09 at 10:19
closer than a certain mp3 player that happens to be subject of many threads around here :) – Molly7244 Sep 29 '09 at 10:58

Nikon D5000

12.3 MP DX Digital SLR, HD Video

Pirce: $700~

nice alternative to the very expensive D90.

the next 'smaller' model, D3000 doesn't feature video recording, so the D5000 is your best bet.

edit: if you don't mind Canon, then get the EOS 500D, the far better camera, pricing is similar to the Nikon D5000.

The Nikon D5000 has what you might want, but it's a hair over $700 (it's $725 on the official Nikon site):
