I remember i while back, most people on here were saying that mini DV is still the best format if you want to do intensive editing on your footage although i dont know the technical reason for this.
Is this still the case?....i ask because im looking for a cheap HD camera for making no budget short films, music videos etc. I dont do enough of this to warrant buying a semi pro camera but i still need to able to to use keyframes, add magic bullit/new blue filters, use crossfades.
Are solid state devices able to be edited like this nowadays using the latest version of Vegas?
Thanks in advance
