I love DSLRs. The mirrored viewfinder looks alot better to me than a digital one. That being said, I've seen that the low-end DSLRs can only record for 10 minutes at a time, at a maximum of 60fps, and have a worse video quality than equally priced camcorders. I'm wondering if there is some sort of hybrid camera I can get, with a DSLR mirror but with long recording times and great quality.
-Budget around $600, but please mention it if it costs more
-Atleast 60fps, but I'd really like 120 or even 240fps
-1920x1080
-The more zoom the merrier
-Great lowlight video (minimal noise)

Less important preferences
-Great picture quality/burst mode
-180 degree swivel external screen
-Interchangeable lenses
-Big, I like big, 2 handed cameras

Thanks guys @Tom'sGuide who consistently answer questions like these.

Sony Alpha a5100 Mirrorless Digital Camera - $598. I know it's a small camera but it will record at 60 fps and the lenses are interchangeable.
