Hey! first post on the site. I'm relatively new to the video end of things, but I have a photography background and have messed around a little bit.

My church is looking into recording the services for public television. I've been given the task to figure out what we need for a camera. Public TV isn't HD and I don't see it getting there for a few years, and at the moment we don't have the equiptment or time to deal with HD. Also, the audio isn't an issue as it will be recorded through the sound system.

We will be shooting from aproximately 40 feet and lighting may be an issue (we have 8 "cans", but I'm not sure what it will look likel)

I'm thinking a SD, used camcorder in the $1,000 range. If we need to we can go higher with the price.

Any suggestions in cameras would be appreciated!
