    Motion Activation?

    I use a Canon DSLR with Magic Lantern. Part of ML allows the camera to snap shots with motion detection and at a farther distance, though I haven't completely explored it's full function. It's useful in areas such as animal watching or aiming at a specific target and waiting for something to happen, which brings me to this question. I'm a PI and usually shoot video when on surveillance. I do believe the ML only allows that feature with pictures and not video. Therefore, I'm wondering if such a handheld device, whether a DSLR or camcorder, offers a motion activation feature. It would be advantageous to keep the camera aimed at a subject's area and then start recording when movement occurs. After all, it's not always possible to remain focused on the door of someone's home or business during the entire surveillance. This would help in case the eyes roam away for a minute.

    Anyone know if such a camera exists? Thanks
