I've been asked to recommend a package of three cameras, PCs, tripods, lights, mic for a Prep school I work at. There is no budget - the PTA want an idea of cost.
I'm a bit stuck with the camera as there are sop many on the market in the budget range. My immediate reaction was aPanny SD90, which would be adequate, but it does not have a headphone output. I think it's essential the children learn the importance of monitoring sound si I don't really find this acceptable.
So, any recomendations for a camcorder in the £250-£400 range with mic in/headphone out. I'd try to persuade them to go for a TM/SD900 or similar instead., but I doubt they can afford three of those and they want to do multi-camera shoots.
They will be editing in Adobe Premiere Elements.
