I'm looking to purchase a camera that takes great photos but also great HD video, im always out and about shooting videos for contact sports, car racing, underwater for scuba diving, So I need a good quality compact camera that when taking film the focus is quick to react like a camcorder and not lagging (like on my Fuji finepix f500 exr).
The Sony Nex 5 has come in to mind or that style range as its compact but has all the key features i need plus the changeable lens to get a great zoom when taking film as well as photos.
My main questions is would this be the right camera for me (which I think itís a yes) but also which brand should I go for? And what accessories would be right for me (apart from underwater housing which I know).
I will be uploading to youtube but also making DVDís.
My current set up is;
Mac book pro with final cut pro
Imovie (for the very quick videos I need to get out and online)
Canon HV10 Ė which has been great but now bulky to camera around and tapes taking to long to process)
Fuji finepix f500 exr Ė which takes great photos but the video lets it down due to the focusing.
