TALLY LIGHT Camcorders include a tally light facing the talent.  This prompter light informs the talent when the camera is recording. This feature is very important in scripted productions to assure the performer that they are in a take. On the other hand in documentary productions this light may introduce unwanted consciousness of being filmed.  Most camcorders have the ability to turn off the tally light.  There are no DSLRs that include a tally light.
