hi sorry about this, people must be fed up with the ,which camera is best question..however ...ive filmed several iceskating competitions for the local club as a favour and i would love to upgrade my sony mini dv camera to one that will give pro quality as opposed to the artifact ridden,grainy quality i can get (the club loved the dvd but im not so happy)
The lighting is all flurescent and not that good hence the grain on the film.
if im going to buy will a hdv camera cope with the low light / fast action. ive read about atrifacts caused by high speed motion ie panning with hdv cameras and since most of the shooting falls into this catagory would it be better just to stick to something like a sony pd170, canon xl2
Anybody got these cameras or hdv cameras with advice also anyone had problems with dropouts on hdv cameras, this kind of puts me off aswell...
