I work in a high school and I'd ideally like to bring in one new camera, as they want to use Pinnacle Chromakey and I believe that DV camera aren't very well suited to the job. We currently have Sony DCR-HC42E cameras.
Also, we would like to use radio/clip mics and the Sony DCR-HC42E's don't have the option of overriding the onboard mic.
We don't have an awful lot of money to spend. Can anyone suggest a camera that is relatively inexpensive and would be suitable for Chromakey and external mics?
