Recently started messing about with video editing software. So far i have only used still pics and video ive sourced from various places.
I actually now want to expand on the fun and do some of my own recording. A lot of what i want to do is chroma keying, its great fun and you can involve friends and family in some good mock ups.
I am looking for a budget camcorder with the following attributes..
Not bothered about bells and whistles,want to get a good recording to pc, i want ease of use, good quality for the buck, easy connection to my laptop, and the best recording format for what i want to do, not looking to record hours and hours of material, and i appreciate some of you guys have a real passion for your hobby, but mine is just at the fun part and who knows i might get serious and start splashing cash all over the place when i get hooked hahaha.
- good lense
- ability to connect to my laptop easily.
- firewire connections
- best recording format??? minidv? hd? dvd?
- remote control
- fairly decent zooming
- image stability
- good colour definition
- anything you guys think would be most beneficial for chroma keying, ease of use and ease of connection to laptop..
£200 is what i am thinking, there is so many on the market around this price my head is going to explode trying to work out which one is for me. But i bet with the knowledge you guys have amounted will be invaluable to me, i hope you can help
