Best DSLR for Run & Gun
I have Canon 6D and planning to invest on another DSLR body or a cheap handycam for run&gun interviews. The shots I do usually are a host/correspondent telling the story while walking, moving, showing something. This means, the lens' focus should follow the person continously.
With 6D, it's not easy. 70D has a continous focus but is it good enough? Second is, if it's not good enough of risky to trust to the camera, is focusing the person via touching to the screen (and face recognition) trustable, or not?
On the other hand, same features (except the touch screen) are built in to the 7D mark II and it's a way better sturdy camera. Does the touch screen changes the usage that much? Or should I prefer 7D mark II?
Honestly, I don't want to buy a video camera/handycam since I want to use my lenses and DSLRs have Magic Lantern, and also I can use them as a photo camera.
