Thread: shooting birds in high quality...

    Default shooting birds in high quality...

    Hi everyone, I have been lurking on here for a while and I know you guys will be able to put me right....
    This isn't just another "what Camcorder" question honest

    I will be on a little wildlife haven in mid wales for the next 6 months or so. There is resident owls , kites and small birds. Rather than photographing , I'm wondering about filming so that I could put together a DVD and post a short film online toward the end of the year... The thing i'm most concerned about is quality. I will be using hide and tripod but want the resulting short film to look good. If I make a poor job, fine but I don't want to get good footage that looks cr@p if you know what I mean.
    I also don't want to be a pixel whore and realise nearly every cam has an HD sticker on it.
    I've looked at a canon HF200 (around 600)
    xm2
    and a used canon XL1 (900).
    I nearly got some work in the wildlife unit for bbc last year and missed out (gutted) Now i'm thinking of putting together a short film to either show what i can do or at least have fun doing ? I'm typically looking at shooting birds in the field, by water etc.
    Nothing I can buy and put on DVD is going to be broadcast quality so whats my best compromise. What I'm after is quality if that means a cam that shoots really good quality in good light but not in poor light, I will work round. Is there a site you peeps look at where you can view sample clips or would they be too compressed on t'internet...
    I'm looking sub 1000.
    oh go on tell me it can be done
