Im new to this site, and i need some help. I am an aspiring camerman and video/film producer. Im looking to buy a camcorder to help me get started on my demo reel and shoot some projects. I really like canons and was looking into buying a used xl2. My question is should a go with a SD camcorder to start of with or spend the extra money and go with an HD camcorder? Im also looking to buy a laptop and editing software at the same time. Im leaning toward Final Cut, I currently have Adobe premier. so if you have any suggestions as to a laptop that can handle multi tasking and multimedia stuff i would appreciate the help. So yea any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
