Hi, I make little Youtube guitar review movies as [ame="http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=r-a6bOXfYJQ"]HERE[/ame].
Some may remember me on these forums as 'Skodster' but I couldn't log in as I'd forgotten my password and my email address has changed! Anyway, I need a recommendation for a DV based camera that has a microphone and headphone socket but has also a manual microphone volume control.
The reasons I need these are that the sound on my video's is poor and it's down to (I think) the auto level constantly hunting for sound when things go quiet. At the moment, I use a little Behringer mixing desk which is fine but I need a manual level. The headphone socket would mean that I could monitor the sound and I could then DI into the desk and eliminate the need for a mic'd up amp.
What cheap s/h cameras could you suggest?
