What video camera should I upgrade to?

Episode 983 (1:09:08)

John from Prescott Valley, AZ

John is looking to upgrade his video camera and wants to know what to do. Leo says that camcorders have almost been replaced overnight by smartphones and DSLRs, which can provide as good or even better quality. Especially DSLRs, which offer exchangeable lenses. The slight downside is that DSLRs have a limited recording time of about 29 minutes. That makes camcorders still beneficial for long form recording. In the Brickhouse studios, Leo uses the Canon Vixia HFG20 all over his studio. They're about $1,000.
