Hello, im new here and would like some advice on buying a new video camera.
I do lots of stills photography and want to get into more serious videoing.
I shoot only as a hobby and have a budget about £1000, and want to shoot mainly sports action, including slow motion and shooting at night. For broadcasting on the web and dvd quality.
I have been using an old camera Samsung VP-d20 and its about time I upgraded.
I have been looking at the sony hdv range and new JVC Everio GZ-HD7 (due out soon). But will I get better features with a newer camera and HD (which to be honest I will not use). Will the image quality be better than an XLS1 when watched on a standard TV.
But also my friend has told be about second hand cameras with more features like the XL1S. I would like to learn as much as I can with the camera I buy.
Any advice would be good.
