Hi, I'm very new to all this and looking for some advice.
I require to start taking video footage of production for the company I work for and as such i'm now looking for either a decent budget HD camcorder or an "expert" HD camcorder (i have to present both options to my directors!). Primarily I am looking to get really good quality video which I can show to clients.
What I'll be doing/require;
1) Video of Welding activities, mainly indoors and well-lit environments.
2) Video of external operations, in all weathers and environments.
3) Potential to do time lapse recording (not sure if this is a Hardware or Software issue/query!)
Current options are;
Budget - Samsung H300 or QF20 - £250-350
Expert - Panasonic HC-900X - £700-1000
I am aware that the two above are poles apart however I want to know if anyone has experience with either model or could recommend an alternative within the same price range.
Any and all advice is greatly appreciated!!
