Thread: Looking to buy a professional camcorder...NEED ADVICE..HELP!

    Default Looking to buy a professional camcorder...NEED ADVICE..HELP!

    I'm looking to buy a professional camcorder for about $2500 or less. The camcorders I have narrowed down to are:

    Sony HVR-A1U - $2149
    Sony HDR-FX7 - $2499
    Panasonic AG-HMC40PU - $2499

    My only problems with the Sony FX7 and the Panasonic HMC40 is that they do not come with a good mic and I would have to buy one myself which would cost more money. What is the best camera to buy in this situation? Other than those is there any camera better for about $2500?


    Also I want a camera that shoots in high definition.

    When you say a Pro camera I don't think you really mean pro, even if you doubled your budget you would still not be in the right price range. Also if you want a really good camera that produces HD footage, I presume you want to produce a high quality movie/video. If so you will have to use an external mic or you projects will seem poor due to the poor sound you will be able to get from any on board camera mic.

    Sorry if this burst your bubble but I think it needs saying to save you from future disappointment.

    Now if you have a specific type of project that does not require good sound then I'm sure either of the cameras in your list will do the job.

    Good luck with your project.
