I need to buy a video camera to film training material, 90% of which will be delivered via the web, with some occasionally used in presentations. I had been thinking in terms of a Canon XM2 - I've around 1500-2000 to spend.
However I see that if I can up my budget a little I might be able to get an HD camera e.g. a Sony HVR-A1E or maybe even an FX1. My question is: would I just be wasting money buying an HD camera when the output is going on the web - would it look any better than footage from an XM2?
The type of footage would mainly be indoor office situations - simulated job interviews etc. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
