Professional Camcorder for streaming live Church Services

by pbsimmon / December 11, 2010 9:06 AM PST

Hello I just ordered a Dell XPS 8100 I7 870 8mb cache core processer, 8gb ram, 1 tb HDD, ATI Radion 5670 (1GB) video card.I need help determining what to buy as a camera. The Camera will be about 80' from the podium in a very well lit building. We were willing to spend no more than 1200.00 (hopefully). Would also be carrying it to church functions. I use Livestream Virtual studio software but would like to start using Procaster to stream with. Would also like to have a remote for zooming and a good tripod. Well a power supply also. Probably a lot to ask for 1200.00. Was looking at the JVC GY DV500U I found about a month and a half ago. 1200.00 Rebuilt by JVC although I cant track the guy down now. I know nothing about this. I was told high optical zoom and big chip ?????? Help Please.

I guess it is the impossible dream because

it keeps cropping up in post after post. You simply cannot buy a professional camcorder for $1,200 even without all of the extras you want with it. If you do manage to obtain one, it is quite likely that your new Dell cannot keep up with a live feed from the camera.

I suggest spending a lot more time researching equipment and requirements before setting budgets and buying equipment.

Well actually I realize I probably wont find all the equipment for 1200 but I really just care about the camera itself right now. And I know I can get a camera for 1200 and less cause Ive seen them all over the net. I mostly figured there was someone out there that has used several of these pro grade camcorders and wouldnt mind sharing their experience with them. Kinda just tell me what would work the best at the distance Ill be shooting.

Thanks again for any help.
