We are after a small, portable video camera that does at least 720p HD and doesn't cost the earth.
We've use a FlipCam mino HD in the past and they are a bit rubbish so we want to step up our game a bit.
What have you lot used? Recommendations would be great. Cheers.
what is it being used for?
...tempted to suggest GoPro
Corporate stuff really. Speaker presentations, event footage... that sort of thing.
There are literally dozens of Sony, Panasonic etc... how do you know what to choose?!
Hero 3 Black - You won't look back!
Really? We won't be doing any sport stuff... :-/
I wouldn't go for a GoPro for the type of video work you're doing...great cameras but not ideal for you IMO.
do you have a budget in mind?
Could go down the DSLR route >> Canon 660D (about £660)
or something like this >> Sony Handycam NEX-VG20E (about £900)
Most cameras these days will take high quality HD video.
Just get a nice camera for the studio.
Sony NEX range could be a good shout.
You can get a mic to go on the top.
Great camera and very small footprint.
Do not get a GoPro.
Go for Sony or Canon, they make the best camcorders.
I have a Canon HF11 (few years old now) and it takes beautiful 1080p video.
He's not a DP or videographer. He just wants to record meetings and events.
In other words, he's going to value auto-focus, auto-exposure, easy zoom, image stabilization, and the ability to record audio...
...rather than 12 stops of dynamic range.
It's not for me to use, it's for the PR team in the office... See my problem?!
Oh yeah, thanks 23kon... good one ;)
i'd go with the canon dslr as suggested.
covers all your requirements (mountable, not to expensive, easy to use) and takes great stills as well.
