Yes, DSLRs are great for shooting videos and are a very economical way to get the footage you need.
Why would I need something like this?
Well, for several reasons.
Lenses of all kinds are very useful, and when you are shooting, if you are able to use the best lens of the bunch, your video will be beautiful. I can certainly tell that you will get some unique results that could surprise your friends (but not me).
A compact camera with a compact lens is also very convenient when you have to shoot, and you need to do it with just that one, small, pocketable lens. This is especially useful if there isn’t anything you could ever possibly do with a DSLR – you can always shoot with something else.

We want to ensure that people who are walking and getting in cars can get to their destinations safely. We want to protect the drivers and those around them. These factors come together if we work together to improve the way cars and people get around in our communities.
In the 1980s and 90s, new technology allowed for safer, less cumbersome solutions. We know from our community safety program that this approach is no longer effective in our current traffic context.
Technology is the key. We know the new high-mileage vehicles are not going to be able to drive down the roads safely. The new cars are too big. They do not have enough airbags. They have too many gadgets.
A lot has changed in the last several years. We are at a tipping point—the change. All that seems to be going in one direction—a steady upswing in the number and severity of crashes. Yet, we are not
