Nikon D3100 (I saw it, it's very charming, I'd like one) set up, it will handle it easily, top pro image quality.
But the customer comes in and says: "no way, buster, that's a still camera, we need a professional video camera on this job."
So my mate thinks for half a sec and says: "not to worry, of course I only use this one for measuring the setup and such, and then I bring in the pro gear. So while the customer is out, he puts video rails under the Nikon, mounts it with a professional video lens hood, you know the huge ones with swinging gates and everything, and he puts a shoulder grip and a focus grip on also.
So the customer comes in, looks, and say: "hey, well done, I'm glad you brought in the professional video camera, go ahead".
Very impressive professional video camera, n'est pas?
