How Can I Make A DSLR Behave Like A “Real” Movie Camera?

Now that’s a question! DSLRs are so lightweight that they don’t move like a film camera. And in many cases DSLRs are ergonomically worse than a camcorder, as they are designed to shoot stills, not video. The solution is as simple as the rules of gravity: Extra mass and size will contribute further to your DSLR behaving like a “real” motion picture camera. There you go:
