Shooting video with a D300s or any DSLR is a blast and gives fantastic results. Once you get a few of the basics down (eg: using a neutral density filter to force the shutter speed, nailing focus and locking exposure come to mind) the results can be very good indeed.

You've got the full line-up of Nikkor lenses to work with allowing creative possibilities that a camcorder can only dream off.

I'm no expert by any means but maybe that is testament itself to how good DSLR videography is? You already know your camera from still shooting, video becomes a very natural step.

Last year I shot this full series of videos with a D300s - with no training and little previous video experience.

Having said that, I did add a D5100 to my kit for the improved video capabilities. I found that I still enjoyed using the D300s because of the heavier build and feel of the body and I have a loupe for the 300 which is very useful for focusing in harsh light.
