Photo innovator Will Crockett suggests that professional photographers may benefit from choosing a non-pro camera as their second shooting system. The image quality of today’s non-pro cameras, like the mirrorless cameras, are as good if not better than big bulky pro cameras.
Here are some non-pro level mirrorless systems that can provide you with GREAT Video!
The SONY NEX-5N can also be a great alternative, and it’s prices should be dropping with the release of the all new NEX-5R. It shoots superior quality HD video, but it also has issues with sensor overheating, so this is probably not the best option for the videographer who wants to get more than say, 5 to 10 minutes of video at a time.

Another great option for those looking for more pro features, is the Panasonic Lumix DMC-GH2. This has been the Panasonic Flagship Camera since it’s release in 2010, and it’s the go to camera for many professional videographers. In fact, in a recent “battle of the cameras” match up, it was chosen by such luminaries as Francis Ford Coppola to be on par with, if not exceeding the video quality of $60,000 professional studio cameras. It’s price has now drastically decreased due to the imminent launch of the GH3.
