    A study of the newly emerging technology of DSLR video, how it is used in the industry and whether it can be described as professional video equipment.

    This thesis focuses on the recently popularised industry of Digital Single- Lens Reflex cameras being used for the purposes of video and film production, looking at how video technology has progressed to the digital age. In order to determine whether these cameras can be qualified as truly professional video equipment, the study considers factors such as design,cost, and the production processing methods used by the video DSLR. The study also contains an insight into the potential problems in terms of production and post production techniques that the DSLR workflow necessitates. Consisting of a combination of source-based analysis of the technology employed and personal communications with industry professionals, this study concludes that this technology cannot truly be classed as stand-alone professional equipment, unless certain criteria are reached in terms of additional hardware and software modification.
