    Default $1000 to buy a camera. Using for paintball videos!

    Well like the title says, I am looking to spend about $1000 (+/- $300) to buy a new camera.

    The camera will mainly be used for shooting paintball games from inside the nets. This means there will be quick moves. zooms will be fast and slow. it needs to work well in very bright sunlight and possibly dark scenes.

    Right now i'm using a Sony HC-85. It served me well but it's not fitting my needs. i need something a bit more professional.


    The only camera I am thinkin of getting is the Sony VX2000. it's not the most up to date model but i figure i can get it for a good price.


    Any suggestions?

    thanks

    Pssh....paintball...

    I'm only joking; paintball is a fine sport...though nowhere near the man's sport that is Airsoft.... :P

    Anyway, I have heard very good things about the VX2000. I say go for it.

    Do you think you can get the VX2000 for $ 1000 ( $ 300)?

    Oooh, I never checked on the price when I posted my reply.

    Sorry man, but unless you have some crazy hookup somewhere, you're not going to be getting a VX2000 for $1000. A few minutes of eBay research shows that they go for around $1800-$2000 there. :|

    If you do find one that way, please contact me, I'd be more than happy to get one myself...
