First of all, hi to everyone on the board.
I'm sorry that I had to create another thread like this. I appreciate Mark W created this thread for us.
For the last couple of weeks I have been researching, and found out that HDV miniDV cameras are very reliable for editing.
What I'm looking for is
- HD (Good enough for amateur VFX/CG)
- reliable for editing, mini DV tape compatible? (what is the difference between mini DV & HD DV?)
- Budget ~ US$1800
So far I found
HDRHC9E MiniDV HD Handycam Camcorder
Canon Vixia HV30
I'm just not sure which camera is the best for me. I personally want to use the camera for a long run for both home videos and my hobby which is producing CG VFX(visual effects). Some might say that I should go for an expensive camera but cannot afford :/
Thanks for taking time to help me.
