As a wedding photographer (stills) Image is everything with out exseption!
I am thinking of making a move towards wedding videography as I think that many parts of a wedding is limited by photography.
I have been asked to also shoot a programme in the future, so the quality is paramount.
I am thinking of diving into HD but as I dont really have a clue about video cameras I think that the best place is to start here.
I'm not to sure on the budget I have so we will start backwards as see what is offering the best bang for my buck, as HDV is changing it may cost alot now and be pritty much worthless in a few months. so that will take the edge off the investment return.
So lets go from around £3000 down to £1200 as a budget I may go higher for the right camera but I will be trying to keep it as low as I can as there will be more kit that I will need. I am proberly looking at a total spend of 5K which will include sound recording equip and some lighting, batteries and the usuals.
Im not to sure on the lens with camcorders as they may be different to stills cameras in my case I will be looking at somethings with a 35 - 250/350mm range. But for the right camera we will have to see.
Im willing to use the a manual funtion as I pick things up real quick, but semi Auto could be just as fine.
I will up date as I am currently shopping looking some camera...
