Hi there guys. Just joined and thought you guys could help me out.
I am an aspiring film-maker and as my 21st birthday is coming up, I am thinking of asking for a whole load of money to put into a camera.
I am not expecting alot. So I would say the limit would be $1000.
I have heard good things about handycams such as Sonys HDR range.
I realise that camcorders like these arnt desired for short filmmaking, but I was wondering if it is a good start off point.
My main worry is mic input. As I know inbuilt mics really suck, and for short films with dialouge, a wireless mic system would be desired, would it not?
Any help would be strongly appreciated.
