Hi, this is my first post..
I'm 20 and about to change my degree to Film Studies instead of Software engineering and Economics, so I bought a pretty cheap digital camcorder (£149.99), it uses cassettes.
The cassettes make a bit of noise when I'm filming. I'm just wondering (as I'm thinking on taking it back and changing it for one that uses DVDs instead) how well will noise reduction software on a computer do for quelling the cassette noise?
I haven't bought any video editing software yet, this is why I am asking.
Another thing to ask: The digital camcorder has a port for a seperate microphone to be put in, if i want it to; so if i go and buy an external mic, will that just solve the problem anyway of the cassette giving me noise I don't want?
