hey i wasn't quite sure where to post this... basically a good few years ago now i had camera experience using a Canon XL1 which at the time was a good camera.. ive now spent 6 years gaining experience within photography, but now looking to slowly go back into camcorder based work.. I dont aim to boost straight into top film and tv work.. but build experience slowly by working voluntary mainly on small projects. What i'm wanting to know is what camera could i get working on a budget of around 500 GBP really... is Canon Xl1s to old now?.. will people all be looking for operators mainly with HD based cameras?..
any help is appreciated
