I am planning to make instructional dvds and videos. I am no big corporation person, I just want to make good videos at home, on a budget. Here's my questions:
to shoot the best possible video INDOORS, what's best:
1. the Kodak Zi8 , or:
2: Canon Vixia HF200 ?
Audio quality is not important to me,because I will record the audio with my pro audio
computer setup,while I shoot the video. I will then synchronize the audio and the video with apps like Cubase.
I am not sure if the Zi8 actually shoots better video than the Canon. Zoom is not strictly essential for now,I suppose. But a tripod probably is, as I plan to leave the camera on a spot and then shoot the video. I won't be able to operate the camera
I am only looking for the best video quality at a budget. Looks etc aren't important. My budget is £ 180 to £ 400 max for a new camcorder. Thanks for the help.
