Ok so I thought I would start the way I mean to go on, controvercy, oh and by the way to let people know I am dyslexic, as some people on forums have tended to correct my spelling in the past.
I am not new to photography having been into it since I bought my Nikon F new, however whilst I have tried and used DSLRs, (Canon 60D) and others for vid, and the quality is there, I found it not as intuitive as a video camera (dedicated).
I have what many will probably laugh at here for my camera,,,,
Panasonic HDC-HS300 with Rode mic and deadcat
I have just bought it pre owned, mint, boxed (without mic and cat) and guaranteed for £200.
I also have another Panasonic HDC-SD10 as a backup.
I shoot maily stills surfing and action but have developed an interest in video, so I apologize now for asking questions that I know will have been asked before.
