I'm taking a CGI digital effects course and ironically i don't know a thing about camcorders but a fair deal about SLRs. my budget is fairly low since i'm a student and will be using my student loan to help me out on this. I also want a fairly good quality video similar to Mat Kearney - Ships In The Night (A cappella Cover by Jake Coco feat. Eclipse) on iTunes - YouTube but with amount of money i got i can't be too picky.
so long story short i need a camera that shoots in HD good quality. I don't really want to record on tape since i would have to keep buying them and frankly their a pain to use.
