Got afew questions. First of all, with so many cameras on the market i basically picked one and hoping for the best it costs about $3500 AU. Its The HVR V1, i am going to be using for snowboarding skating surfing ect and wanted to know if it would suit this field of work? now if your going to give me some other cameras please dont go over $5000 au haha.
Now with the HDV tapes is it possible to buy over 300 of them and once all the memory has been used in one i can change it over and use the next one. Then when i get back home put it in my camera and put them onto my computer or RAID.
Also when converting HDV footage onto a computer or RAID do i need some kind of converting software or can i edit straight away or do i need some kind of special extra kit because they are tapes not solid. Never used tapes before. I have a mac tower btw or will have.
