Hi, and thanks in advance for the input.
I manage a small web development firm, and we are getting into shooting short transparent videos for websites.
We have purchased Sony Vegas 9, and a greenscreen package with lighting and all ($250 Square Perfect).. it was a great deal.
My personal camcorder is the panasonic sw-20.. waterproof but not a great match for chroma key.
Can anyone give me some input on what camcorder under the $200 mark would be good specifically for Chroma Key.
From what I've read, I need a low compression, ccd, and a decent lens system.
I know that under $200 is stretching it really thin, but for web quality, I should be able to pull it off.
Here are some of my options:
Jazz EMHD183 8MP HD Digital Video
Also, can anyone please explain the difference in compression. I know recording to a sdhc card is highly compress... is it the same for hard disk? I'd rather not go for dvd recording, or is it the best option? how about mpeg4?
