A digital SLR camera is best for shooting videos during winter. The ability to manually control a DSLR gives the user versatility for a variety of lighting conditions. The wide selection of lenses available for DSLR cameras provides for a range of perspectives and the opportunity for artistic freedom.
There is a large selection of lenses available for DSLR cameras that allow users to shoot panoramic scenes with a wide-angled lens or zoom in on distant action with a telephoto lens. A telephoto lens is also useful in winter, allowing the camera and operator to remain under shelter from the elements while filming scenes that occur further outside. Care should be taken to keep expensive photographic equipment out of the rain and snow, but if it's too wet to safely take a camera outside, it's probably not suitable weather for filming anyway.
