Hi everyone, I've been into video/audio editing for a while, and I'd like to take it a step further...
I've been using my digital camera for most of my videos that I've made so far, and I'm now starting to feel the feature restraints, so I've decided to buy a second hand camcorder. I've got about £100 to spend - not much, but it seems as though I should be able to get a Digital 8, or low end Mini-DV camcorder for that price on eBay. Could any of you recommend a camcorder that I'll be able to get at this price? A few of the things I'd like it to have are...
16x optical zoom.
True widescreen would be fantastic, but I highly doubt any camcorders will have it at this price.
Good white balance, exposure, and sharpness (basically good picture quality).
Solid in design and functionality.
Manual controls are a must
Any other features that are good to have in a camcorder that I've not mentioned.
There are so many different models out there that I'm getting rather confused.
