I am contemplating purchasing a canon xm2 Here's why. I have video'd some weddings for friends, then edited with Magix Movie pro. All my friends have been delighted with the results. Not because the quality was great, just because they felt I captured the feeling and emotion of the day and they liked what I filmed, how I filmed it and how it was edited.
I want to do more weddings for friends/people I know, with a view to possibly being able to set up a small business. I am a midwife and love my profession. I'm not looking to go full time, just to film and edit more weddings as its something I really love doing.
Would the XM2 suit this purpose. I am not able to stretch much further price wise and am aware that I will probably need to spend somewhere near the price of the camera to get all the extras I am going to need (microphone, lights, batteries etc).
I would also appreciate some advice on what microphone to buy if I go for the XM2. I have been looking at the DM50?
