I am going to purchase a digital camcorder very soon. This is my first digital purchase, and I'm not sure how to handle it. If you know what you're talking about- Would you give your input, please?
I have a bunch of 2-3 minute shorts that I'd like to film. So the main purpose of this camera will be to film those. I'm assuming Mini-DV is the way to go. I'll be editing, so I need something that's easy to work with and is friendly to my PC.
Features are nice, but I don't really need a slowmotion-nightvision-fisheye while upside-down option. I'll need a camera where I can use an external mic, if needed. Other than that I'm not sure.
I'd like to spend no more than $600-700. Have any suggestions? The films will take this blog to another level- so help me out.
