Thread: What Camcorder???

    Default What Camcorder???

    Hi, I hope someone can help me please. My son is doing a media study course at Uni and I would like to get him a camcorder for xmas because filming is what he wants to do as a career. I have no idea what to go for and don't want to waste precious money on something that isn't right. If someone could give me a couple of ideas of which ones to go for then I would really appreciate it.

    A few questions:

    • What's your budget?
    • Has he used a camcorder before / what make and model does he currently have?
    • What computer / software does he use to edit videos?
    • Will this be used "just for fun" or will there be a specific purpose?

    Hi Mark, well apparently he's using a Sony Z1 at Uni and the software he uses is Adobe premier...This camcorder is probably way above my reach for him but I would like to get as good as I can. I'll probably go up to 1000 if that's any good, although hubby won't be very pleased lol. He does a lot of videoing and film work at Uni. Thanks for the reply!

    This is a terrible answer, but from all you've said, I'd advise you let the lad chose his own camera. He's clearly keen on it all, so he'll have a very clear idea of what he wants.

    Thanks Mark, I was hoping to surprise him but maybe you're right.
