I want to buy a my first serious camera. i have used quite a few, but i think its time i got my own now.
I want a camera that films ok inside without the use of extra lights and is also pretty good quality. i will mainly be usin it to teach kids video production & also maybe branch into the wedding video / corporate video market, buit mainly using it to make my own short films and docs!
I dont really understand how the whole 'pro' camera thing works. I am looking at the Sony HVR A1 at the mo... its about £1500... what is the difference between this and say the canon XL2 thats around £2500? or the Sony Z1 thats about £3500???
i have read a few reviews that say footage from the Z1 and A1 could be cut together, with a little work... so why not just buy the A1 for £2000 cheaper?
I dont really have a budget... i just want a good camera that does what i need it to and costs as little as possible, so i can spend more money on accessories.
Any help or advice is great cos i really dont understand the difference really, and i just wanna know if me watching my tv or the film put on a projector will actually make much difference if i get the A1 or the XL2 or the Z1!!!
