What do I need to move over to HD video creation
Hi all I have been video filming and editing with Vegas Pro8 in SD using a Sony DCR HC1000E, this has some nice features with manual zoom and focus and with the Lanc port works well with the stop/start and zoom controls on my Sony tripod handle. I am thinking of making the move to HD but am not sure what. equipment I will need to change. My PC has a quad core Intel processor and 4gb Ram
I have a Plextor DVD writer, am I correct in thinking that I will need to move to Blue ray burner and replace my home DVD player connected to my TV.
From what I can find on the interweb it appears that unless I choose a professional model of camera the Lanc port no longer seems to be part of the camera specification. Is there another way of connecting the tripod controls without using Lanc as I do most of my filming on a tripod.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
My apologies if this is not the correct forum.
