At the over £1,000 and sub £2,000 price point there are several DSLRs and compact system cameras (CSCs) that have taken movie capture to a high-spec level. Some offer top-notch settings that promise professional quality and intelligent controls.

When spending upwards of £1,000 there's a lot to consider: which model produces the best quality footage; which can autofocus with ease (if this is important to your movie making); or how much manual control do you get over exposure?

There's also a mixture of Four Thirds, APS-C and full-frame sensors available.

We've rounded up five current models over the £1,000 threshold and break down what they're capable of to help you choose the right model for shooting video.
