Can anyone give me any advice on buying a camcorder. There are so many models and I'm not sure which is best. I am making a documentary on a local residents group and want something that will take good quality footage. I was thinking about pushing the boat out and buying a sony dcr hc1000 but am I being a little too ambitious.
I have been using an analogue camcorder and the picture quality is not that good. I have a sony vaio laptop with ulead videostudio 8 which I use to edit everything so something that will work well with these would be ideal. some models that have been mentione are trv60, hc90, pc1000. any help would be gratefully appreciated.
