I had decided that, for work, we should purchase a Panasonic HMC150 camera and go with Final Cut for editing. However, today I came across several videos shot with consumer HD camcorders that were edited using some type of effect from a Red Giant program like Magic Bullet. These videos look amazing! I'm pushing the budget with the camera and the purchase of a Mac and now I'm wondering if I should go with a camera that, with accessories, is around $1200.00 total and spend some of the budget on Magic Bullet. I'm a beginner with a camera but a decent editor using Sony Vegas. With a smaller camera, I can get some lights and maybe an Azden wireless mic kit that's listed on B and H for $147.00. Any thoughts? Camera or Magic Bullet? Which is better if you can only chose one?
