My mother has a single yoga room where she meets with her geriatric clients daily. She uses a cordless microphone that is strapped on her clothing.
Due to restraint of transportation, lots of her clients have asked to watch their class online. She is thinking of creating a new 60-minute video on a weekly basis . Thus she will get good use out of the camera.
I know that after the raw video, she will have to hire someone to edit and place on her website…. I will pursue that later.
I want to purchase an excellent video camera that has an audio input so it can record her wireless microphone. The camera will be placed on a tripod 10 feetaway to view her and some of the clients.
I am looking at Canon XA25 and Sony NEX-VG30H. The former has an XLR audio input which would fit her wireless microphone. The latter has Stereo minijack which I would have to buy an xlr adapter.
Is this overkill? If not, which or other suggestion? Of course I want to save $. At the sametime, this endeavor will keep her busy and help her clients.
Thanks for your help.
