INTERCHANGABLE LENS VS. FIXED A camera with a lens mount for inter- changeable lens is desirable because it allows for recording in a wider variety of challenging situations and some lens options add special effects. The problem with changing the camera lens is getting dirt on the camera sensor,  and many modern DSLRs include a dirt reduction feature.  Keep in mind, that If you change lenses often or work in dusty locations, you will need to manually clean the camera sensor and lenses often and sometimes daily.  Having a broad selection of lenses may also require having many ND filter sets.  The fixed lens on many 3 chip camcorders is super zoom but not very wide.  A camcorder owner should invest in a wide angle accessory lens for working in tight spaces.
