    Default Filming in the desert...which camera?

    Hi - hoping people can advise me as to which camera would be most suitable. I'm going to be filming in the desert - filming will all be close up, day time, interview type stuff.

    I need:

    - external mic socket (essential)
    - high definition
    - good battery life, or at least replaceable batteries so i can take spares
    - will have laptop with me to transfer files as required
    - small and light weight is preferred
    - 500 price bracket

    I'll be editing on a mac and will have about 8 hours of filming time.

    The end product will end up on DVD and/or online video streaming.

    Thank you,

    Andy A


    I'm UK based.

    Heat kills both the charge and the life of Lithium Ion batteries as used in most cameras. Make sure you keep the spares as cool as possible.

    Canon c300 would be a safe bet a tad over your budget unfortunately
