I am going into a new job and some major pressure has been put on my shoulders. I am supposed to learn how to take video and then edit it in a weeks time! Yikes! I've been all over the internet doing research for a new camcorder, but I also need video editing software as well, something i can use on my mac and a pc. As far as experience goes, I have experience using iMovie and Final Cut Pro. I am going to be using the camera to record evidence as well as re-enact accident scenes for a law firm. My budget for the personal camera is 250-300, just to get a feel for taking video. ANY ADVICE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!
