So... Thanks to your help in my first question I have narrowed the field greatly. Yet I still need some advice.

So I'm looking at cameras/camcorders to use for short films, skits ect. I would like to have a DSLR but if there is a camcorder that well exceeds the quality of video from the DSLR's then I won't have a problem with getting a camcorder.

So I'm looking at the Canon 80D (http://www.amazon.com/Canon-EOS-80D-Digital-Camera/dp/B01BUYJX6G%3FSubscriptionId%3DAKIAJHZHL2PTF4QQSIQA%26tag%3Ddpreview-bbx8-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB01BUYJX6G) and the panasonic G7 (http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-Mirrorless/dp/B00X409TIC%3FSubscriptionId%3DAKIAJHZHL2PTF4QQSIQA%26tag%3Ddpreview-bbx8-20%26linkCode%3Dxm2%26camp%3D2025%26creative%3D165953%26creativeASIN%3DB00X409TIC)

What makes the 80D worth the extra money and is the G7 good in low light?

also what camcorders can out perform these DSLR's for around the same price?

Needs to be exceptional in low light and full HD 60fps is a must, 4k would be nice but not needed external mic and headphone ports are needed. Needs to have a fully articulated screen. and a place to mount an external mic. I would like it to be able to record 30min non-stop with out changing battery or memory or anything else.

I don't care about the portability to much or on-board mic quality at all

please tell me about ANY camera/camcorder that you think can well exceed the quality of video from the DSLR's that i have selected here for around the same price.

Thanks for all of the help guys! it's very much appreciated.

The main differences between a system camera and a compact camera is the size, weight and not least - the possibility to exchange the objective.

Nikon D750 is by no means out of the question, in fact it is a really good camera, but it is a complete different camera, which I myself is thinking of.

Ps. I'm sorry for the underlines, I don't know what happened. Best regards from Sweden.
