DSLR or camcorder
It should also be remembered that most Camcorders take still photos. I have a Panasonic HC--V700 and now use it as my stills camera for general use. The quality of the shots is good enough to print to A3 size (B size in USA)
Having both options available on one unit and with the good quality of the photos, I would go for a Camcorder every time.
