Lookin for some opinions from you video guys. Im trying to find a decent MiniDV camera for $400 or less. Something with a night mode or light would be nice. Thanks in advance.
for $100 more you can get a pretty nice panasonic with a 3CCD chip VS the standard consumer 1CCD... professional cameras are 3CCD which picks up alot more colors, etc. I personally can't stand a camera with all auto controls but def. try to find one with 3CCD's if you can. :bigthumb:
Thanks robbo. I dont need anything top notch really. Im just gettin tired of takin still shots. Your big into editing obviously but i dont even know where to start lol. I just dont wanna buy some crap camera ya know. Should i stick with panasonic though?
I am in the process of getting a good digital video camera. What are CCD's? I dont care about size, just something that works well...
What does everyone recommend besides panasonic? And why? I want to keep it under 500 bux, but its gotta be something easy to use. I dont need professional stuff, just something that works well. Thanks!
Those are CCD's chips below... basically to put it simply, the CCD chip effects the color and quality... "Broadcast" quality cameras use 3 chips where-as most consumer cameras until recently were only 1 chip.
Here's a shootout that is work the click... I have the PV-GS120 as my crappy camera :silly: I usually use a sony professional setup(PD-170) and am ordering a hi-definition unit in the next couple weeks.
